England’s Barmy Army is known for being critical towards the Indian cricket team and the Indian cricketers and even their birthday wishes are in a very bad taste. Though competitiveness in game is a good trait, being sarcastic while offering birthday wishes is certainly not the right thing to do. However, recently Barmy Army was at its poisonous best when it wished former Indian cricketer MS Dhoni on his birthday.
MS Dhoni celebrated his 41st birthday on 7th July and wishes poured in from all over the world. Barmy Army also wished the Indian legend by posting an image from the 2019 World Cup India vs England match in which MS Dhoni is seen walking back to pavilion after getting dismissed. Barmy Army captioned the photo as, “Happy Birthday MS, some amazing battles over the years”.

This obviously didn’t go well with the Indian and CSK fans and Whistlepodu Army – CSK Fan Club gave a perfect reply to Barmy Army by posting pics from the 2013 Champions Trophy final which was played between India and England and India won it by 5 runs under the leadership of MS Dhoni. In one of the images, MS Dhoni can be seen celebrating the stumping of Ian Bell and in another photo, he is seen holding the trophy.
The tweet was captioned with, “Thank you & Yellove on behalf of all Dhoni fans. We love the courtesy extended amidst these battles and the amazing memories like these which we cherish. #HappyBirthdayDhoni”

MS Dhoni is the only skipper who has won three major ICC trophies (2007 ICC T20 World Cup, 2011 ICC ODI World Cup and 2013 ICC Champions Trophy) and this is more than enough to prove that he is one of the best skippers India has ever had.
As far as England’s Barmy Army is concerned, they have been doing such things in the past and they will surely keep on doing these kinds of stuffs in the future as well because some people never change.
Barmy Army, take a chill pill!
