MUMBAI: MS Dhoni’s name received an honourable mention on micro-blogging site Twitter following India’s 10-wicket ODI crushing defeat against Australia.
The first match of the ODI series between India and Australia did not go in the favour of the hosts at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
It was the fifth 10-wicket defeat for India in ODI cricket, and only the second at home.
While Indian skipper Virat Kohli urged the fans to “not to panic” after the defeat, Twitter users clearly had made their decision as, once again, ‘Dhoni’ starting trending.
