New Delhi, Nov 11: After India head coach Ravi Shastri slammed critics for continuously scrutinising Mahendra Singh Dhoni's performance, the cricketer's fans have trolled former India pacer Ajit Agarkar.
Agarkar has been constantly questioning MS Dhoni's performance in T20Is as the veteran wicket-keeper batsman hasn't been at his lethal best in the shortest format of the game.
According to the former India speedster, the selectors should drop Dhoni from India's T20I squad and give a youngster an opportunity. The cricketer-turned-commentator also feels this is a perfect time the selectors should prepare Dhoni's successor.
"I think India must now look at other options, at least in T20Is. In one-day cricket, they seem to be happy with the role that he is playing. When you were the captain of the side, it was different. But just as a batsman, will India miss him, I don't think so. In T20 cricket, it is a lot easier to make that transition as there is a lot of experience in that team apart from MS Dhoni now," Agarkar was quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
But Agarkar's observation wasn't liked several Dhoni fans, who feel the veteran cricketer should quit as per his choice.
Here's how fans trolled Agarkar:
@imAagarkar u are not eligible to comment one the best cricket of India has ever produce. U can't decide who will retired when. This is degrading ur image again and again— GYANA RANJAN BHUYAN (@imgyana4u) November 10, 2017
Chill.. down.. msd is msd and agarkar is agarkar. It is better that one should not judge others retirement time when that person who comments had not got any opportunities to retire gracefully. 😋— Shakti Somadutt Rout (@shaktisomadutt) November 10, 2017

There were those who backed Agarkar:
Dhoni was a master of limited overs cricket. The only thing limited now is the strike rate. Dhoni should continue to play odi but should retire from. T20— Vinayak (@Vinayak27682852) November 10, 2017
