Irfan Pathan who earlier faced the wrath of Dhoni fans for criticizing him, now posted a tweet in Tamil language to console them after their loss against Mumbai Indians. Though few fans felt happy and thanked him on seeing his tweet, a majority number of fans didn’t convince and are confronting the former CSK player for the old tweet he posted along with Harbhajan singh when Dhoni failed to perform.
In a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, while chasing 164 runs, unlike previous occasions, Dhoni missed to connect the ball well and became a subject to the attention of social media. In the final moments of the match, Dhoni found it difficult to middle it and the yellow team failed to chase the score. He scored 47 runs from 36 balls in the match which didn’t meet the end.
Taking a sly dig at Dhoni’s performance, Irfan Pathan, former CSK player wrote “Age is just a number for some and for others a reason to be dropped…” in his tweet. He indirectly mentioned how Dhoni dropped senior players from Indian cricket team during his prime to give chances to youngsters.

This tweet didn’t go well with the fans of Dhoni and CSK at that time. They slammed Irfan Pathan for his hateful tweet against Dhoni. Now, after the team got out of the tournament, Pathan came up with a tweet writing in tamil, consoling the fans.
“This year is not meant for CSK. But they will come back stronger in the next match. A few changes is needed for the team. Because change is the only aspect that remains constant” Irfan said in his tweet by writing “2020 CSKக்கான வருஷம் இல்ல. ஆனா, அடுத்த வருஷம் கண்டிப்பா திரும்ப strongஆ வருவாங்க! அணியில் சிலபலமாற்றங்கள் தேவைப்படும். ஏன்னா, மாற்றம் தான மாறாத ஒன்னு!”
