Hyderabad: Mumbai looked down and out, after ending their innings at 129 for eight, as their top order experienced an early collapse against a disciplined Rising Pune Supergiant bowling attack, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, in Hyderabad, on Sunday.
A target of 130 is generally considered a modest one, keeping in mind that scores of 200-plus are not unseen in the shortest version of the game in recent days. The game, at this point, was RPS’ to lose.
Seeing this development, RPS tweeted a rather questionable picture of MI captain Rohit Sharma crying, from their official handle.
However, demeaning an opponent, especially at such a big occasion, is never a good idea. RPS realised their mistake and took down the tweet later. Here is a screenshot of the tweet that more than 100 retweets and more than 150 likes on the social media site, before they supposedly took it down.
After the match, the Pune-based franchise also supposedly tried to explain their stance about the Rohit Sharma tweet, saying that “it was all in good spirit”.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Mumbai Indians' fans have taken this tweet in the right spirit....
