Kieron Pollard’s brutal hitting took Mumbai Indians to an incredible victory over high flying Chennai Super Kings. This match has gone down as one of the greatest games in IPL history with the 2nd highest total chase. The genuine cricket fans enjoyed the batting of both teams and the ruthless competitive spirit that both the teams showcased.
However, going by the toxic nature of social media in the current generation, there were many sarcastic remarks as well on the game.
There always has been a section of cricket fans in the tweeter who downplay Mumbai Indians win. Hence even after the win against Chennai, tweets poured in about how Ambani is using his influence in the result and money being used or umpires helping MI.
Former Mumbai Indians fast bowler, the New Zealander Michell McClenaghan reacted back to a couple of the tweets with blunt remarks as below after he must have got frustrated while reading some of the tweets.
The fans need to understand and appreciate the game of cricket rather than downplaying some great performances. Sport is a hard profession and there is a lot of hard work involved by the players who take up sports as a means of livelihood .
