This controversial tweet about MS Dhoni by industrialist Harsh Goenka (the brother of RPSG owner Sanjiv) has seen the latter come under fire on Twitter. Sanjiv made the decision of replacing Dhoni as Rising Pune Supergiant captain in favour of Australian Steve Smith, a move that was criticised by many on social media when it was originally announced before the start of the 10th season of the IPL.
Goenka deleted his tweet, but as with anything on the internet, there’s always a record
#RPSvMI Smith proves who’s the king of the jungle. Overshadows Dhoni completely. Captains Innings. Great move to appoint him as captain
In last year’s IPL, Rising Pune Supergiant finished at the bottom of the table under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s leadership. This year the team got off to a winning start under new captain Steve Smith, with the Aussie scoring an unbeaten 84 to steer his side home in their tournament opener against Mumbai Indians.
