Cricket lovers are quite happy as the tenth season of IPL has started, but every Indian cricket fan is a little upset with the fact that for the first time in IPL, M S Dhoni is playing as a player and not as a captain. However, for most of the Indians, whether Dhoni plays as a captain or a player, he will always be their Captain Cool and they are happy that he is playing at least.
MSD is playing for Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) which is being led by Australian player Steve Smith. The start in IPL for Rising Pune Supergiants was superb as they defeated Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets in their first match. Steve Smith and Ajinkya Rahane played an important innings with the bat as Steve scored 84 not out off 54 deliveries while Ajinkya played 34 balls to score 60 runs.
Undoubtedly, Steve played a captains knock and led the team from the front, but what Harsh Goenka, brother of Sanjeev Goenka (owner of RPS) did was completely unacceptable. Harsh praised Steve, which was obvious, but showed disrespect to Dhoni when he tweeted, “Smith proves who’s the king of the jungle. Overshadows Dhoni totally. Captains innings. Great move to appoint him as captain.”
No Indian cricket lover can accept this and Twitter just got berserk and slammed Harsh Goenka mercilessly for his insensitive tweet. Check out few reactions:
