New Delhi: MS Dhoni did not have the best of starts to this season of the IPL. While it started with Sanjiv Goenka removing Dhoni as the skipper and appointing Steve Smith as the captain of the Rising Pune Supergiant outfit, brother Harsh commented on how it was a brilliant move to appoint Smith as captain after Pune beat Mumbai Indians in the opening game, even taking a dig at Dhoni. But Harsh has now done a U-turn.
After Dhoni reminded the cricketing world of his prowess, hitting an unbeaten 61 off just 34 balls, to take Pune home off the last ball on Saturday, Harsh took to Twitter to praise Dhoni and call him the greatest finisher.
Harshâs tweet read: âMasterful innings by Dhoni. Great to see him back in form. Nobody can be a greater finisher. Takes @RPSupergiants to a nail-biting win.â

But Dhoniâs friends and fans have still not forgotten the earlier statement where Harsh had written on Twitter how Smith had completely overshadowed Dhoni in their first game of the season in Pune.
And leading the way was none other than India batsman Ambati Rayudu who wanted someone to gift Harsh a mirror.
Great knock @msdhoni . Can some one plz gift a mirror to @hvgoenka.— Ambati Rayudu (@RayuduAmbati) April 22, 2017
A parody account of Ravindra Jadeja also said that Harsh should remember that Dhoni is the undisputed king.

Another fan posted a picture of a scared cat and compared it to Harsh.

Even though Harsh has deleted the old tweet, clearly Dhoni's near and dear ones are in no mood to forget the humiliation.
