Rising Pune Supergiant co-owner Harsh Goenka, after repetitive attacks on MS Dhoni on Twitter in this edition of the IPL, has now decided to lash out at Indian captain Virat Kohli, after the recent resignation of Anil Kumble from the post of head coach of the Indian cricket team.

Harsh Goenka grabbed a substantial amount of attention after his remarks on Dhoni and his captaincy. Before the start of the tournament, the Goenkas surprised the entire cricketing fraternity after he removed MS Dhoni from the captaincy and let Australian national captain Steve Smith take over the captaincy from one of the most successful captains the country has ever seen.


The co-owner of the franchise, following a match-winning knock from Steve Smith in their first match against Mumbai Indians, tweeted about who the real king of the jungle is and backed his decision to sack MSD from the position. Prior to the playoffs of the tournament, his brother Sanjeev Goenka commented that Steve Smith has a sharper mind than that of two times World-Cup winning Indian captain.

It seems that after attacks on MSD, the focus of the Goenkas is now on Virat Kohli who is currently under the scanner for the resignation of Anil Kumble as the head coach of the Indian Cricket Team. Harsh Goenka tweeted by saying, “Pl apply for Indian cricket coach. Qualifications: Organise travel schedule, Fix hotel rooms, Be obedient to BCCI and Indian cricket captain.”


Much has been talked about the rifts within the Indian Cricket Team prior to the start of the recently concluded Champions Trophy. Apparently, the overbearing attitude of Anil Kumble did not go down well with the Indian captain and he let the BCCI know about his so-called ‘reservations’ against the former Indian coach. To this, Goenka to a sly dig at the captain, highlighting the superstar culture prevalent in the Indian dressing room.
