As Ben Duckett struggles on the field against the Team India In the ongoing second Test in Vishakhapatnam, one of his old posts on X left fans stunned.

While he is busy playing in the second game of the five-Test series, some social media users managed to unearth an old post and it has now gone viral on the social media platform. As a result, the England opener could find himself in the firing line of MS Dhoni fans due to his former tenure. The post was not about MS Dhoni but about his wife Sakshi Dhoni.

I had written the post in April 2013, when the Indian Premier League was underway. The left-handed batsman, who was yet to debut for England at the time, may have seen Ms Dhoni on television during an IPL match and decided to express her admiration for her on social media. Taking to X, he had written: “Dhoni’s girlfriend/wife is top notch.”

Ben Duckett didn’t even know Dhoni’s relationship status. For those who don’t know, the former Indian captain and Sakshi tied the knot in 2010. Meanwhile, the England star’s old post has left Indian fans stunned and sparked a series of reactions.

These are some of the reactions:
