Indian Cricket fans have filled Twitter with Rajinikanth-esque jokes about MS Dhoni's speed, after the ICC tried to banter with him over a viral image from after India's first ODI win over New Zealand in the Kiwis' own backyard.
Following the first ODI at Napier, which India won by 8 wickets (Duckworth/Lewis Method), chasing down New Zealand's 157-run target with relative ease, World Cup-winning skipper Dhoni and current Team India captain Virat Kohli field-tested (literally) a pair of Segway scooters, moseying along the outfield as the post-match press conferences were going on.
The video went viral, and shortly after, the ICC got in on the act as well by tweeting out a picture of Dhoni on his ride. The International Cricket Council attempted to have a little fun, asking if Dhoni was looking for a quicker way between the stumps, potentially implying that India's superstar had slowed down.
Dhoni fans, however, have given the question an emphatic response, including some humdingers:
Some have said that wheels are simply not as quick as Dhoni:
Others think Dhoni isn't impressed by the machine's speed:
One person has a neat telecommunications analogy for how quick Dhoni is:
One has called Dhoni Mr Supersonic:
Someone says Dhoni is the fastest land mammal:
Someone else says Dhoni is the fastest human in history:
One person thinks Dhoni is just wondering whether to add it to his collection of two-wheelers:
At the moment, it's Dhoni who is winning, not just on Twitter, but also in Cricket in general, having played a starring role in all three ODIs against Australia. He was named Man of the Series following India's 2-1 series triumph.
