MS Dhoni’s Last-Ball Finish Provides CSK Fans ‘Moments Of Joy’ In Unforgiving IPL Campaign

Dhoni, on his way off the ground, was greeted with a bow from CSK captain Ravindra Jadeja

Things haven’t been easy for the defending champions, the Chennai Super Kings. Playing without their strike bowler, Chennai had to wait for five matches to register their first victory. Their second win came on Thursday, April 21st, when MS Dhoni struck a flurry of boundaries to guide his team past Mumbai Indians’ total.

 

While the road to playoffs looks treacherous, Dhoni’s vintage finishing act provided CSK fans a moment of pure joy in what has otherwise been an unforgiving campaign.

When Dhoni finally came on strike in the 20th over, CSK needed 16 from the last four balls. Jaydev Unadkat’s attempted yorker fell right in the arc of Dhoni, who whacked it over the bowler’s head for a six. Jaydev overcompensated with a slow bouncer, which was pulled over the fine leg for another boundary.

 

With four required off the last ball, Dhoni squeezed away a low full toss to fine leg to finish the game for his team.
