Legendary Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has said the threats towards iconic India wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni’s family are “not right and shouldn’t happen”.
This comes after rape threats were directed towards Dhoni’s six-year-old daughter Ziva following the Indian Premier League (IPL) match between the Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders on October 7.
Dhoni, who captains the Super Kings, made 11 runs off 12 balls in the match, which his side lost by 10 runs.
Shahid Afridi "I don't know what sort of threats were directed at MS Dhoni & his family but it's not right & shouldn't happen. Dhoni's the person who has taken Indian cricket to new heights. He's taken junior & senior players along this journey & doesn't deserve such treatment"

The Super Kings are currently in seventh place on the IPL standings as they have won two out of the seven matches they have played.
