MS Dhoni become the toast of the entire country after his short but impactful cameo led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to the finale of IPL 2021. The skipper of the franchise hit three fours in the last over to script his team’s victory against table-toppers Delhi Capitals (DC). He faced just 6 balls and scored an unbeaten 18 runs which included one six as well.
Chasing 173 runs to win, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Robin Uthappa scored the fifties and kept their team in the driving seat. In one of the videos on social media, the fans can be seen going wild for the former India cricketer.
After CSK’s four-wicket win, Dhoni admitted that chasing against DC was not easy. “My innings was a crucial one. Delhi has a very good bowling attack. They exploited the conditions well, so we knew it would be tough. “I’ve not done a lot in the tournament, so wanted to look for the ball and see what the bowler can do. I was batting well in the nets. But wasn’t thinking too much, if you think too much while batting then you mess your plans up,” Dhoni said after the game.
