Tendulkar was critical about Dhoni's 52-ball 28 runs which slowed down the run-rate of India against Afghanistan.
Mumbai: Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar was trolled for his remarks over the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. Tendulkar was critical about Dhoni's 52-ball 28 runs which slowed down the run-rate of India against Afghanistan in World Cup 2019.
Tendulkar also added that MS Dhoni's partnership with Kedar Jadhav was slow and it lacked positive intent. India pulled off a win, though Afghanistan competed till the last over of the match.
However, fans of MS Dhoni were furious about Tendulkar's comment and opened up several comparisons between both the cricketers on Twitter.
"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," Tendulkar was quoted as saying by India Today.
Here are some tweets of fans who defended MS Dhoni on the social platform:

Admit or die🤷💁
The same man that won you the World Cup which you couldn't win in your whole career with one of the best Indian players around. Sachin acting like he was some big hitter, man used to struggle in his 90s. Someone should pull up his strike rate when he's been in the 90s🤦🏽♂️ #Dhoni🐐 pic.twitter.com/hCVQ5aBI9h— Nim (@Nirmal_A) June 24, 2019
