Ajit Agarkar Slammed by Fans For Comments on MS Dhoni

Former India all-rounder Ajit Agarkar got slammed by the fans for his comments on former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is facing the heat after his uncharacteristic knock in the second T20I against New Zealand.

Agarkar’s comment had come after Dhoni failed to play according to the situation in Rajkot.

Having walked into bat when the team was four down for just 67 runs in the tenth over and needed more than 10 runs per over to chase down a huge 197, Dhoni, like he usually does, took his time initially. And by the team, he played some big shots the match was already sealed in the Kiwis’ favour.

In the first 20 balls that he faced, he had managed only 17 runs, and although he eventually scored 49 off 37, his knock could not provide the chase with the much-needed impetus, as India went on to lose the game by 40 runs.

Since that knock, Dhoni has been facing widespread criticism with Agarkar also being one of the critics. The former India star had said that India should look beyond the World Cup-winning skipper in the shortest format of the game.

“I think India must now look at other options, at least in T20Is. In one-day cricket, they seem to be happy with the role that he is playing. When you were the captain of the side, it was different. But just as a batsman, will India miss him, I don’t think so. In T20 cricket, it is a lot easier to make that transition as there is a lot of experience in that team apart from MS Dhoni now,” Agarkar had told ESPNcricinfo.

The likes of VVS Laxman and Aakash Chopra too had echoed Agarkar’s sentiments on the matter.

But while Agarkar might be right in their assessment of Dhoni’s future, his comment did not go down well with the fans who took to Twitter to slam him.
