Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni smashed a not out 47 off 36 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday. During this, he also appeared in some pain on the field. Dhoni is 39 years old and now questions are also being raised about his fitness. During the match, Dhoni appeared to be very unhappy with the heat in the 19th over, he had to call Fijio on the field and also had to take some medicine. The next day of the match, Irfan Pathan made a tweet, which has sparked controversy. Irrfan did not name anyone in this tweet, but it seems that he has targeted Dhoni.
Irfan Pathan wrote on Twitter, ‘For some people age is just a figure, while for others, the reason for being excluded from the team …’ It is noteworthy that under his captaincy, Dhoni has given some veteran cricketers to grow old age and fitness. Did not give the place. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, Irfan Pathan also dropped out of the team and then could not return to international cricket. Big names like Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly dropped out of the team under Dhoni’s captaincy. On this tweet by Irfan Pathan, the fans have heard Dhoni a lot.
Age is just a number for some and for others a reason to be dropped…

Irfan Pathan in his last 10 ODI Matches had Batting Average of 48.3
And took 19 Wickets in his last 10 Matches and a Fifer in last match …Still Dhoni ended his career at age of 28 despite performing excellent

MSD destroyed multiple careers, he finished the team Ganguly made and replaced Team India with CSK players, who were managed by Rhiti Sports in which MSD had stakes. Sooner he is completely out of cricket, better it is.
