#DhoniDropped or #WeStandByDhoni - A battle between those who have given up and those who still back MS Dhoni.
New Delhi: India's most successful captain MS Dhoni hasn't had things going his way in the Indian Premier League season 10, and after Rising Pune Supergiant's defeat to Gujarat Lions yesterday, #DhoniDropped and #WeStandByDhoni have been trending on Twitter.
While the #DhoniDropped hash tag has been trending because of those who believe the former India captain's time is up, Dhoni's ardent fans started another hash tag #WeStandByDhoni in support for the Jharkhand batsman. (IPL 10 - Points Table | Fixtures)

Despite being freed from the burden of captaincy, Dhoni hasn't been his usual self and is yet to fire with the willow in the 2017 IPL season. This even got former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly doubting his ability as a T20 batsman.
“I am not too sure if MS Dhoni is a good T20 player. He is a champion ODI player but when it comes to Twenty20 cricket, in 10 years, he has got one fifty and that’s not the best record,” Ganguly had said.
After Dhoni's failure against Gujarat Lions, critics are coming even harder on him, but hopefully he will answer them back with a strong performance soon.
