Sushant Singh Rajput clearly developed a bond with Mahendra Singh Dhoni while playing his role in former Indian captain’s biopic. Since then, Sushant has come out in support of MS Dhoni many times and in one such incident even took on the former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly after Dhoni’s heroics with the bat on Saturday night. As Dhoni guided Rising Pune Supergiants to a thrilling win against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Sushant took to Twitter to hit out at the critics.

“Dhoni is not a …. ” what did you say ?? Wonder where are the Experts now. Proud of you mahi!!” wrote Sushant. Even though Sushant didn’t mention any name, his tweet is likely directed at Sourav Ganguly who recently said that MS Dhoni is not a good T20 player. “I am not too sure if Dhoni is a good T20 player. He is a champion ODI player but when it comes to T20 cricket, in 10 years, he has got one fifty and that’s not the best record,” Ganguly told India Today.
Ganguly’s comments came after Dhoni’s poor performance in the first few games of this year’s Indian Premier League. However, Ganguly said that he would still pick him in India’s Champion’s Trophy team. “I will pick Dhoni for the Champions Trophy but he has to score runs,” Ganguly said.

Even Dhoni was being criticized for his slow scoring rate at the start of the season, Sushant had come out in his support. “The fact that Dhoni is so harshly scrutinised shows his class &the standard he has set. It’s a matter of time ¬ hope his bat will answer (sic),” he wrote previously.
