The story began after CSK’s defeat against SRH. Chasing a target of over 160, CSK struggled for 42 with Dhoni in the middle. However, Jadeja and Dhoni battled hard to deepen the game. Well, in the process, Dhoni posed in the middle and coughed. So much so, Dhoni faced hot and humid conditions, probably in Dubai. After losing, CSK lost the game by seven runs. Instantly after the match, Irfan Pathan posted a cryptic tweet around MS Dhoni. Taking a sarcasm at MS Dhoni, Irfan tweeted, “Age is just a reason for some and for others a reason to be dropped.”

The tweet did not go down well with the fans as the all-rounder was quite spoiled for his tweet. Irrfan replied to his critics and tweeted, “Sirf Do line mein sir ghum gaye, puri kitaab padhne par chakkar bhi ayega”. Irfan while responding to his critics. The tweet means: Only two lines created such havoc on social media what if I had written an entire book on it.

Irfan Pathan’s first tweet was about the fact that he has been removed from the team quite often. And, moreover, the explanation is his growing age. Pathan has been known to disagree with being false to the team due to his growing age. Pathan last played a T20 match for India in October 2012. He was not part of the Indian team since then.

Talking about MS Dhoni, he recently announced his retirement from international cricket after being away from it for a long time. Therefore in IPL 2020, MS has struggled with the bat and to some importance with his fitness level. He has failed to reach the right time with the bat. However, CSK will expect Dhoni to regain his Midas touch, in his winning ways.
