Mumbai: Harsh Goenka, brother of Rising Pune Supergiant’s owner Sanjeev Goenka, invited criticism from MS Dhoni supporters following his tweet after RPS’ win against Gautam Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday.

To his credit, Goenka did praise Dhoni after his 34-ball 61-run knock powered RPS to last-ball win.

Dhoni fans hit out at Goenka, saying:
