Twitterati hasn’t spared even a legend like Sachin Tendulkar. The stalwart of Indian Cricket Team Sachin Tendulkar has felt that MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav has lacked intent in the game against Afghanistan. Meanwhile, it didn’t go down well with a section of fans, who started to troll Sachin Tendulkar.

Tendulkar, speaking to India Today, admitted that he wasn’t pleased with the way Dhoni and Jadhav played. While Indian players are considered as good players of spin, the match saw Men in Blue scoring only 118 runs in 34 overs of spin bowling overall.

Slightly disappointed – Sachin Tendulkar

“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 said.

The 37-year-old produced a slow 28-run knock from 52 deliveries. He was stumped off from Rashid Khan’s delivery. The dismissal happened in the 45th over.  Also, his very slow inning partnering Kedhar Jadhav kept hurting the Run Rate of the innings.

MS Dhoni’s knock was the slowest innings over the score of 25 in this World Cup so far. His 28 runs were scored at a strike rate of 53.84. The second slowest innings in this World Cup above the score of 25 is David Warner’s 48-ball 26 vs Sri Lanka.

Dhoni and Jadhav were part of a 57-run partnership for the fifth wicket but they also played out 84 balls between themselves. Dhoni made 24 off 36 in that partnership while Jadhav scored 31 off 48 balls which slowed down India’s proceedings in the middle overs.

Social media, however, has gone berserk in targeting Tendulkar, with some of the ardent Dhoni fans being critical of Tendulkar’s comments.
