India won Afghanistan by 11 runs in a nail-bitting match on Saturday at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. With this win, India became the third team in the history to win 50 World Cup matches. Though Afghanistan hasn't won a match yet, the team is forming into a good one giving India a tough fight making it a thrilling match to watch.

CSK gives back to user who trolled them for Dhoni\'s performance

Though India's batting order struggled under Afghanistan's spinners and scored 224 for 8 wicket loss in 50 overs, the bowlers took control of the match, rounding off Afghanistan for 213 in 49.5 overs. India got the lowest total since April 2015. Shami made a record making hat-trick in the last three balls of the match, taking all the wickets of the team.

However, Dhoni, who was expected to swing his bat and get into helicopter mode, scored 28 runs off 52 balls with no sixers and 3 fours and got stumped in Rashid Khan's over. Netizens who were already frustrated with the way the match was going took it out on Dhoni asking him to retire soon - the same way it was done with Sachin, Dravid and other legendary players when they underperform in a match.

Dhoni haters and cricket fans started trolling him, with one particular user, who claimed that the user likes Dhoni but was unhappy with his performance, tried to troll CSK. The user, going by the name 2kg Tomatoes, tweeted CSK saying "@ChennaiIPL hiding under bed after Thala performance #INDvAFG #AFGvIND @rashidkhan_19."

CSK, known for their coolness and comebacks, retweeted the tweet, replying "Haha. Comfortably lying on the bed watching him guide the bowlers! 🦁 #WhistleForIndia #INDvAFG #CWC19" giving it straight back proving one underperformance can never diminish a great player's skills.
