IPL 2017: Right from the start of the season, Rising Pune Supergiant’s owner’s brother Harsh Goenka has been sending out controversial tweets. RPS started their season slowly but now they picked momentum and winning matches. Currently, they are the number 3 position in the points table, inching towards playoffs. RPS comprises of some of the biggest names in the game such as MS Dhoni, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes and Faf du Plessis. They also have a good pool of youngsters who have stepped up and given some brilliant individual performances.
After RPS’ recent victory against Kolkata Knight Riders, Harsh Goenka once again took to Twitter and praised some of the best individual performers.
“Great thing about #RPS – a new hero every game -Tripathi, Stokes, Smith, Tahir. Peaking at the right time.”
Now, this tweet created a huge storm on Twitter. While mentioning some of the best performers for RPS in IPL 2017 so far, Harsh Goenka didn’t take MS Dhoni’s name, who has made some valuable contributions and also played match-winning innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad. This angered the massive army of MS Dhoni fans and they gave it back to Goenka.
