We all were totally awe-struck with Dhoni’s batting in the last match. The way MSD finished the last over was perfection personified.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad’s medium pacer Siddharth Kaul was the bowler for the last overs against Rising Pune Supergiant. Pune needed 15 runs from the final over and Dhoni was batting, he finished it off by hitting a boundary on the final ball of the match.
Siddharth Kaul is the same bowler who helped SRH win previous two matches with his exceptional delivery in the final overs. T20 has an unpredictable game format, luck can change sides whenever possible.
Dhoni was playing amazing in the match against RPS by scoring 61 runs from 34 balls and remained untouched until the end. He looked fierce and determined and that’s what made the climax of the match interesting like any thriller movie. The end result we all know that RPS won the game against SRH.
Kaul recently gave an interview to Hindustan Times, he said,
“It is very challenging to bowl at Mahi bhai when he is in blazing form. I tried different variations and changed the field placements, but he just went after the bowlers and snatched the match from us.”
After the match was over, Dhoni walked up to Kaul and applauded him for his incredible bowling and said that he executed Yorkers to the level of perfection. He said,
“Acha ball kar raha hai tu. Pace bhi bhadd gaya hai tera aur yorkers bhi ache jaa rahe hain. Aise hee sharp ball rakh.” (You have been bowling well. The pace has also increased and you are executing the Yorkers to perfection. Keep up the good work).”
Well, Kaul took this encouragement quite seriously and he is all prepped up for the next match against Kings 11 Punjab in Mohali. Let’s see how he performs in this match.
