Dhoni Fans Trolling Tendulkar For His Remarks Against Dhoni’s Intent And This Is No Good

No one is spared on social media. No, not even God. Here is what Sachin Tendulkar told to a news channel after India managed to scrape through a last-over victory against minnows Afghanistan.

“I felt slightly disappointed, it could have been much better. I was also not happy with the partnership between Kedar and Dhoni, it was very slow. We batted 34 overs of spin bowling and scored 119 runs. This was one area where we didn’t look comfortable at all. There was no positive intent”

These were the comments which triggered yet another war on social media. And this time, it was Sachin Tendulkar on the receiving end. MS Dhoni’s online brigade was unhappy with the comments made by the “Master Blaster” on the man who had managed to glorify Sachin’s career with a World Cup Trophy.

In the game against Afghanistan, MS Dhoni walked to the crease in the 27th over when the team was launching itself for a flourish at the end. However, after Virat’s dismissal, MS Dhoni was expected to carry the burden but unfortunately, the 37-year-old failed to come to the party. He managed to score 28 runs off 52 deliveries before he was stumped out of Rashid Khan’s bowling.

MS Dhoni did have an off-day and Sachin Tendulkar was right in providing his thoughts after the game. Sachin said that he was unhappy with Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni’s partnership and felt that the duo must have shown more intent against the Afghan spinners. The comments did make perfect sense and even MS Dhoni himself might have agreed to Sachin’s comments.

However, the so-called online fanatics of MS Dhoni felt these comments by Sachin were targeted against Dhoni and hence, they involved Sachin Tendulkar in a number of unacceptable memes on social media.

It is on these days that the unfortunate side of social media shows up. Constructive criticism is always welcome but trolling someone for his comments just because you like someone else is purely nonsensical.
