Dhoni finishes it off in style. We were used to hearing these words when MS Dhoni used to finish the game for India. Arguably the greatest finisher the game has ever seen had won numerous games for India. However, India have struggled to find a finisher since the retirement of the former skipper.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is still playing IPL for Chennai Super Kings and still doing wonders for them. ‘Thala’ was on his absolute best as he smashed 16 runs on the final four deliveries to win the game of Chennai Super Kings.
The world witnessed a vintage MS Dhoni in the game between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings
Mumbai Indians were up against Chennai Super Kings in the 33rd match of the IPL 2022 on Thursday. It was a dream start for the Yellow Army as they sent both openers back for a duck. Some disciplined efforts from Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, and Hrithik Shokeen pushed the five-time champions’ total to 155/7 in 20 overs.
Chasing the total, the defending champions lost Ruturaj Gaikwad on the first ball of the innings. Seasoned campaigners Robin Uthappa and Ambati Rayudu led CSK’s resurrection but got dismissed at the wrong time. With a couple of wickets in the middle-overs, Mumbai Indians roared back into the game.
With the game titled towards the Blues, MS Dhoni stitched a crucial partnership with Dwaine Pretorius. However, the South African all-rounder got out on the first delivery of the final over, with CSK needing 17 runs off the final five deliveries.
Dwayne Bravo gave the strike to MS Dhoni with a single and ‘Mahi’ took the charge. The fans witnessed the vintage Dhoni as the former skipper blasted 16 runs off the final four deliveries to seal the win.
Fans go into a frenzy, ask Dhoni to comeback
Twitter was set ablaze by the knock of MS Dhoni and the fans demanded MSD come out of the retirement to play for India. Former pacer RP Singh led the conversation and posted a tweet asking MS Dhoni to play again.
