Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) got slammed on Twitter by Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni's fans for a tweet featuring him. The franchise had posted a tweet comparing Australia's fielding placement in the fourth Ashes Test with their field set against Rising Pune Supergiant. 

Australia were very close to winning the fourth Test match as they needed to pick the last wicket of England with only two overs left in the match. Stuart Broad and James Anderson played the last two overs bowled by Aussie spinners - Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith.

They kept all the fielders close to the batter to capitalize any chance produced by the bowler. But fortunately for England, Broad and Anderson managed to draw the Test match by surviving the last two overs.

KKR's Twitter account posted a picture with a similar fielding placement for Dhoni in IPL 2016. In that match, Pune were struggling at 74 for four in 10.3 overs when Dhoni came in to bat at number six. 

The then Kolkata captain Gambhir had tried to put pressure on Dhoni by setting an attacking field for him with a silly point along with two slips and a short leg. 

After KKR shared the picture, the fans felt they are mocking the four-time IPL winning captain. Here are the reactions from fans to the tweet:
