MS Dhoni-Steve Smith are like Jai-Veeru of Sholay, feels Harsh Goenka. RPS ended up runners up after the clash against Mumbai Indians, as they were defeated by 1 run in the final of the Indian Premier League 2017 on May 21. Mumbai kept their cool to defend a paltry total of 129 in a nail-biting last ball thriller to lift their third IPL trophy. During the final, Harsh Goenka, brother of RPS owner Sanjiv Goenka, compared Pune's skipper Steven Smith and MS Dhoni with the iconic Bollywood movie Sholay's pair of Jai and Veeru. Goenka has been critical of Dhoni since the start of the IPL 10 and consistently defended his brother's decision of sacking the Ranchi cricketer as the team' captain. Goenka took to Twitter to laud their pair. He tweeted, "Outstanding combinations: Laurel- Hardy, Jai -Veeru, Smith- Dhon #IPLfinal,".
