Looks like Harsh Goenka, the brother of Rising Pune Supergiant owner Sanjeev Goenka is not learning from his mistakes. After Pune’s loss against the Kings XI Punjab on Saturday afternoon, he took to Twitter and shared a screenshot of strike-rates of Pune players from this season. His tweet read as, “#RPS batting statistics until now – Manoj Tiwari, Rahane, Christian have the best strike rates.”
Watch the highlights of the match here:
The interesting part here was Daniel Christian who played his first match for the side on Saturday was placed below Mahendra Singh Dhoni who has a strike-rate of 73.91. So, it clear attack at the former Indian captain for his substandard performance in this season so far. This ofcourse didn’t go well with the Twitterati who came out in defence of MS Dhoni and destroyed Harsh Goenka.

This wasn’t Harsh Goenka’s first attempt to bring down Mahendra Singh Dhoni as after Pune’s win against Mumbai Indians a couple of days ago he posted a tweet calling Steve Smith ‘king of the jungle’. “RPSvMI Smith proves who’s the king of the jungle. Overshadows Dhoni totally. Captains innings. Great move to appoint him as captain,” read Goenka’s tweet. After a massive outrage on the social media platform, he was forced to take down this post.
