Just In! MS Dhoni once again proves ” He is a True Legend”. The Ranchi Boy struck 24 runs in the last over against Royal Challengers Bangalore by hitting three monstrous sixes and one classic boundary. In the end, Chennai Super Kings needed two runs one the last ball, but unfortunately Dhoni went for an unfinished single and his partner Shardul Thakur was run out at the other end. Royal Challengers Bangalore won this match by only one run.
Earlier on, RCB proposed 161 for 7 runs while batting first against Chennai Super Kings in the 39th T20 match. The opener Prithvi Patel struck a beautiful fifty of 53 in that innings. However, when CSK came to bat, it was a total disaster for them. For starters, They lost first four wickets at just 28 runs before completing the 4th over. But then, the Legend MS Dhoni came on the crease.
Firstly, Dhoni tried to build the CSK innings by just rotating the strike and hitting occasionally boundaries. However, his partners on the other end, kept giving away their wickets with short intervals. Somehow, CSK reached at 136 for 7 in 19 overs with MS Dhoni still on the crease. CSK needed 26 runs in the final to seal the match, but Dhoni struck only 24 runs. He smashed the first ball of the last over for a classic four, but the next two balls were a treat to watch for CSK fans.
The second ball went out of the ground, when MS Dhoni smashed it with his brutal power. He did same with the third ball too. The fourth ball brought two handy runs for the Ranchi Boy. So, CSK needed 8 runs on just two balls. MS Dhoni once again hit the ball for a six. It was two runs on one ball now. The last ball from Umesh Yadav who bowled this last over, was a slow full length. Dhoni could not connect the ball, but he went away for a quick one. His partner was out of the crease which resulted in a run out.
If, MSD had completed this runs, it would be a marvelous show to watch for the CSK fans. Nevertheless, Dhoni ave his best and tried to save the day for Chennai Super Kings. This whole show, is a prove that he has still got it.
Chennai Super Kings are still on the first spot on the points table, despite losing this match. They will now meet Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 41st match.
