Goenka hasn’t been a fan favourite of the RPS faithfuls during the course of the tenth edition of the IPL because of his comments regarding Dhoni early on in the season.

His comments about Dhoni took the nation on rage and they blew him off.However, he later took the turn when MSD smashed few best death bowlers to give incredible victories for Rising Pune Supergiant in the first playoff.However, earlier, Goenka had applauded Smith, at the expense of Dhoni, after the Aussie skipper hit 84 runs off 54 balls to guide Pune to a scintillating win over SRH, during the early stages of league.But Harsh Goenka faced tremendous backlash on Twitter and MS Dhoni fans filled his page with hate messages for making ‘negative’ comments against the former India skipper.

Harsh Goenka, brother of Rising Pune Supergiant owner Sanjeev Goenka, made a fresh attempt to appease the fans by likening Steven Smith and MS Dhoni’s partnership to that of the iconic Sholay pair of Jai and Veeru.

Jai-Veeru are the most iconic duo ever created in the history of Indian cinema. Sholay’s Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) and Veeru (Dharmendra) is still regarded as the best on-screen partnership in Bollywood. While Laurel and Hardy are the two most recognizable faces as far as English comedy goes.

By likening Smith and Dhoni to these iconic duos, what Goenka is trying to say is that the two players complete each other. One cannot shine without the help of the other. His Twitter post read: “Outstanding combinations: “Laurel- Hardy, Jai -Veeru, Smith- Dhoni #IPLfinal”

But even this legendary partnership could not get Pune over the line as Mumbai won the IPL-10 final by one run to win the title for a record third time. Smith starred for RPS with a half-century, but he perished in the last over and couldn’t get his team over the line.
