MS Dhoni is aware of Virat Kohli’s weaknesses, having played with him for more than a decade. The former CSK captain knew that Virat could prove threatening if he stayed at the crease for a long time.
Dhoni moved Shivam Dube from fine leg to a deep square for Virat as the right-handed batter would target that area early in the innings. The plan worked as Kohli whipped Mukesh Choudhary’s delivery uppishly, and Dube completed a good catch running in from the ropes.
The 33-year old didn’t do much and scored just 1 run for his franchise. His dismissal gave the Yellow Army much-needed momentum as they kept the remaining batters under control. Glenn Maxwell tried his best to play a match-winning knock, but the Aussie star managed 26 off 11 balls before Ravindra Jadeja bowled him.
Ravindra Jadeja-led team won the game by 23 while defending 216 runs at the DY Patil stadium in IPL 2022.
