If you’ve been following the 2019 IPL lately, you’d know that Mumbai Indians won against Chennai Super Kings. However, that’s not what we’re here to talk about. MS Dhoni, the CSK skipper, is the lifeline of his IPL franchise. His controversial run-out in Sunday’s final (12th May) against MI for two, leaving CSK in trouble at 82/4. CSK fans were certain that Dhoni was not out and this got a lot of reactions from all over the world. Meanwhile, there were many who suggested otherwise.
New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham tweeted this statement while uploading an image from the match, “I love how passionate some fans are about our sport. I have huge respect for MS but how anyone could see the below photo and say it’s not out truly astounds me.”
Shortly after, Neesham received a lot of “dumb comments” on his twitter feed, which made him remove the post!
One said, “Neesh, there are two sides to a coin mate. Your very same picture at the exact moment from another angle. Care to Google about optical illusion maybe?” To which Neesham responded, “I might google optical illusion if I was 4 years old.”
Another twitter user responded to this comment made by Neesham, “That’s exactly why he is asking you to google. Grow up Jimmy.”
Once Neesham removed the original post from Twitter, he explained why he did it, “I’ve deleted my tweet about MS Dhoni’s runout, not because I’ve changed my mind, but because:
- I’m sick of seeing the same dumb comments in my feed 200 times a day.
- I just don’t actually care.
Please don’t bother tweeting me about it again. Have a good day everyone.”
Chasing 150 to win their record 4th IPL title, CSK lost their captain and top-scorer of the IPL season when he attempted to steal an extra run in the 13th over. Ishan Kishan’s direct hit at the non-striker’s end seemed like a close call was referred to the third umpire.
Nigel Llong gave MS Dhoni out, only after a series of replays and deliberation.
And ultimately, the thriller saw MI take out CSK by 1 run to bag a record 4th IPL title.
