Later the Kiwi batsman deleted his post after flooded by loads of hate comments by the Chennai Super Kings and Dhoni fans.
Frustrated Neesham cleared his stance on deleting the post regarding Dhoni's dismissal and posted, "I've deleted my tweet about MS Dhoni's runout, not because I've changed my mind, but because: 1. I'm sick of seeing the same dumb comments in my feed 200 times a day. 2. I just don't actually care. Please don't bother tweeting me about it again. Have a good day everyone."
