Dhoni’s Heroic Innings Against DC In Play-Offs Leaves Cricket Fraternity Impressed, See Tweets

MS Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings had a pretty poor IPL season in 2020 and it was not even able to qualify for the play-offs but in the IPL 2021, it has become the first team to enter the finals. This is the 9th time that CSK has reached the finals and MS Dhoni certainly deserves to get a lot of credit for this wonderful performance of the Chennai franchise in the tournament.

MS Dhoni has been leading CSK since the inaugural edition of 2008 and till now, the Chennai franchise has won IPL three times which speaks highly of the great manner in which Mahi has captained the team. However, he was constantly getting targeted for his poor form with the bat and a former cricketer also took a jibe at the capability of Dhoni on finishing the game. There is no denying the fact that the 40 years old cricketer is not in his prime but it doesn’t mean that he can be written off and yesterday in the first play-off match which CSK played against Delhi Capitals, we got the chance to see the glimpse of younger Dhoni and certainly many memories were brought alive because of the quick knock that he played to take his team into the finals.

CSK chose to bowl first after winning the toss and its decision was proved correct by its bowlers as they took three top order wickets quickly but Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant played half-century knocks and helped their team in putting up a good total of 172/5 in 20 overs. In response, CSK batters did pretty well as Ruturaj Gaikwad and Robin Uthappa played smashing knocks but there was a time when DC was making a comeback in the game and at that time, Dhoni promoted himself ahead of Ravindra Jadeja as he has a good experience of playing and winning close matches.

MS Dhoni played a quick knock of 18 runs for which he played only 6 balls and his innings included 3 fours and 1 six. The CSK fans went crazy after seeing Dhoni playing like the younger Dhoni and he made sure that his team went into the finals. There was celebration all over the ground and Dhoni’s wife Sakshi and many other fans were in tears after the match got over.
