‘Aj Dhoni hota toh…’, Fans missing former captain after SL loss, check HERE

Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis handed Sri Lanka a brilliant win over India by 6 wickets at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday (September 6). The Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 went down the wire as Sri Lanka needed 7 runs in the last over. Captain Dasun Shanaka kept his cool and helped his side win the second game in the Super 4. Indian fans were not impressed by Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue and MS Dhoni was trending on Twitter, courtesy of the moments he has provided to the Indian side during his time of captaincy.

MS Dhoni is known for cool and calm composure in pressure situations with India always having the last laugh against any opponents in such games going right down to the wire.
