The former international umpire Daryl Harper has come up with some critical remarks for the Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni. Harper spoke very critically of MS Dhoni for the latter’s act of stretching a conversation with the umpires to waste time in order to get Pathirana eligible for bowling the 16th over of the match in the second innings of the match against Gujarat Titans in the first qualifier.

"Of course, MS Dhoni wasted time to allow his preferred bowling option to deliver the vital sixteenth over. That's the only conclusion that I can draw from that disappointing spectacle. The issue for me is the lack of respect shown for the Spirit of cricket and for the directions of the umpires. There were other options for the captain but they were ignored,” said Harper as per quoted by MyKhel.

Although a section of the cricket, especially the MS Dhoni and CSK fans took this statement of Harper to troll him on the micro-blogging site Twitter with a lot of interesting and hilarious reactions. Fans came up with a lot of replies targeting Harper for making this out-of-the-box statement for MS Dhoni on the incident of the first qualifier.
