Debate between MSD and Tendulkar explodes after Thala’s near-heist, with one saying that “MS Dhoni has surpassed Sachin in terms of craze and fanbase.”

With a unique knock that transfixed spectators late on Sunday night, MS Dhoni turned back the clock. It was Dhoni’s first time hitting the bat since winning the IPL trophy as captain last season, and even though Chennai Super Kings were well out of the chase after Delhi Capitals bowled brilliantly in the middle overs, his unbeaten 37 from 16 knocked fans crazy globally. On social media, the old-fashioned jab, meanwhile, set up an incredible fan feud, with many asserting that Dhoni had now “surpassed Sachin Tendulkar in terms of craze and fanbase.”

Axar Patel put on an economical three-over spell, and players like Ishant Sharma, Anrich Nortje, and Betway tormented CSK with cutters and wide yorkers. Delhi was able to rally after Ajinkya Rahane threatened to end the match with his 45-run knock in the 192-run chase.

But Dhoni responded magnificently in his opening innings of the Twenty24 Indian Premier League, hitting two boundaries in the first three balls he faced off against Mukesh and then hitting a six over extra cover against Khaleel in the following over. He saved the best for last, though, as he blasted Nortje for 20 runs in the final over, including two sixes and an equal number of boundaries, sending the audience into a frenzy.

Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in defabet was set to serve as the home ground of the Delhi Capitals this season. However, during that special knock, a sea of yellow, wearing the iconic No. 7 jersey, invaded the venue early on Sunday evening and chanted “Dhoni-Dhoni.” Fans who believed that Dhoni’s fan base was larger than that of former India captain Sachin Tendulkar engaged in an epic social media confrontation. A few responses are shown here.

Notwithstanding the opinions of his supporters, Dhoni still regards Sachin as his hero. “I used to watch him play when I was your age and always thought I wanted to play like him but couldn’t,” Dhoni acknowledged, speaking at a CSK event last year. He was my childhood hero in cricket, and I always secretly wished I could play like him.”

Sachin, in a Jio Cinema interview, recalled the day he suggested Dhoni for India skipper after the BCCI had offered him the position in 2007. This was prior to the commencement of the IPL 2024 opener at Chepauk. “My physique was in terrible condition when the BCCI offered me captaincy in 2007,” he stated. My analysis of MS Dhoni was excellent. He makes sound judgments, has a highly stable mind, is composed, and is instinctive. He should be captain, in my opinion. What’s left is history. That year, Dhoni captained India to the 2011 ODI World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy. He also led the team to victory in the inaugural T20 World Cup.
