The defending champions were supposed to be dictating terms in the ongoing season. However, few changes took place at the start of the season where the cricketer fraternity saw MS Dhoni having over the responsibility to Ravindra Jadeja.
The all-rounder didn’t pull off a series of tricks as a captain and ended up on the receiving end. CSK have won only two games (against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians) out of eight games under Jadeja’s captaincy.
Moreover, things turned from bad to worse for the yellow brigade. With pressure piling up on Jadeja, he handed over the captaincy duties to MS Dhoni ahead of the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad at MCA Stadium in Pune.
In what came as a sigh of relief for CSK fans, MS Dhoni returned to the field as captain. CSK went on to beat SRH by 13 runs and secured their third win of this season. However, they still have a mountain to climb in order to qualify for the playoffs.
MS Dhoni loses his cool in the final over against Sunrisers Hyderabad
MS Dhoni is famously referred as “Captain Cool” because of the calmness he brings to the table. However, at times, there were few instances where he literally lost his cool and took the cricket fraternity by surprise.
During the recently-concluded game between CSK and SRH, MS Dhoni was absolutely livid with Mukesh Choudhary after the latter failed to bowl according to the plan. The left-arm fast bowler has been in pretty decent form this season.
To some extent, he has filled the shoes of injured Deepak Chahar. However, Mukesh didn’t bring the best out of himself in the final over as SRH piled up enough runs on the board. MS Dhoni lost his cool after Mukesh didn’t bowl to his strengths.

When 38 runs were required off the last over, Mukesh conceded a six followed by a boundary. Although he bowled a dot ball, he followed it up with a wide delivery. It was when MS Dhoni lost his cool as he pointed the fielders towards the off-side.
Despite all that, the pacer still conceded two back-to-back sixes as Nicholas Pooran did enough carnage. CSK could have won the game by keeping things tight but conceded plenty of runs in the last over.
