MS Dhoni is one of the most successful captain in cricket’s history, but he failed to make an impact as the captain of Rising Pune Supergiants in their first ever season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2016). It has been a forgettable journey for Pune in their maiden IPL season as they lost eight out of their eleven matches.
Under the leadership of MS Dhoni, Rising Pune Supergiants have failed to get together as a unit and managed to win only 3 out of 11 matches they have played so far in IPL 2016. It is true that Rising Pune Supergiants have faced a lot of injuries issues, but Dhoni’s captaincy has also looked lackluster, just like his batting.
Rising Pune Supergiants fans are not happy with MS Dhoni because of the poor show put up by the franchise. But they are also raising questions regarding the absence of all-rounder Irfan Pathan from the squad.
The only match he played in the ninth edition was against Kings XI Punjab, in which he bowled just one over, where he conceded seven runs. MS Dhoni’s decision left the cricket fans annoyed who feel that it’s a tactical mistake by Captain Cool, which cost RPS dearly.
Here are some of the tweets:
