MS Dhoni took the entire cricketing fraternity back in memory lane as he finished off an encounter yet again. Dhoni’s blistering cameo powered Chennai Super Kings to another finals as CSK defeated table toppers Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1 on Sunday.
MS Dhoni finishes off in style
CSK were chasing a tough total of 170+ in Dubai where batting was comparatively easy in comparison to other games. Chennai were on top of the game as Gaikwad and Uthappa put on a 100-run stand. However, CSK lost wickets in clusters and the run rate reached more than 10.
CSK needed 24 off two overs when well-set Gaikwad was dismissed by Avesh. But to everyone’s surprise, Dhoni walked in the middle ahead of in-form Jadeja who has had a golden run for CSK when it comes to finishing games. On the other hand, Dhoni was having a lean IPL.
But Dhoni showed everyone yet again not to write him off. Even in his 40s, MS Dhoni still has the finishing abilities instilled in him. He scored 18 off 9 deliveries and took CSK over the line with 2 balls remaining.
