We have seen many close matches in the Indian Premier League tournament but very rarely we get to see such a nail-biting finish as we saw in the yesterday’s match that was played between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The match was played at Chinnaswamy stadium, Bengaluru, and RCB gave a target of 162 to the visitors. The bowlers of RCB were bang on target and there was a time when CSK was 28/4 but its skipper MS Dhoni kept the hopes of fans alive by giving a tough fight to the host.
He built up a partnership of 55 runs with Ambati Rayudu who scored 29 runs before getting out. Despite wickets falling down from the other side, Dhoni was fighting a lone battle and in the last over when 26 runs were needed to win the match, he managed to score 25 in Umesh Yadav’s over (4, 6, 6, 2 and 6).
Unfortunately, he was not able to win the match for his team as Shardul Thakur got out on the last ball but it was one of the best performances of Dhoni in which he scored 84 runs of 48 balls. The passion, grit and determination that Dhoni showed was unmatchable and his fans on social media got so excited that they started trending #DhoniforPM, which means that they want to see Dhoni as the Prime Minister of India.
Here are some of the selected tweets:

Don't know if he'll ever stand for an election in future. But if he does, I am going to vote for #Dhoni as my PM.
His hunger and commitment to win is second to none. He makes the impossible seem so possible. He's a damn legend. #RCBvCSK

#Dhoni has that leadership quality & dedication, that sharp & cool brain who can run the country. We will be fortune if he someday becomes our PM.
