A Tweet placed by Pooja Hegde post the defeat of India in Today's Semi Final against New Zealand hasn't gone down well with many Indians. What did she actually express?

Pooja Hegde: 'Heartbreaking to see India lose today but #Dhoni you beauty, you proved today why you're my favourite... he gives every match his all and he really tried hard to pull through for us...Much love and respect to our former skipper'.

Actually, Dhoni is one of the reasons behind losing Today's Match by 18 runs. He scored just 50 runs out of 72 balls faced by him. Playing 37 dot balls had put so much pressure on both Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja. Desperation to accelerate costed the wickets of these two all-rounders. The plan of Dhoni to push the match till the last over hasn't gone India's way due to the fantastic runout by Martin Guptill.

And now, Pooja Hegde has been facing the backlash for heaping praises on MS Dhoni who's defensive mindset costed India a berth in the ICC World Cup 2019 Final. What's the point in blaming someone who hasn't affected the result in any manner?
