The recent IPL encounter between the Chennai Super Kings and the Royal Challengers Bangalore proved to be an absolute run fest. The fans who watched the game are going gaga over it. It was a stunning finish from the veteran in business, MS Dhoni. Dhoni’s heroics helped Chennai Super Kings win the southern derby in Bengaluru. The fans loved the game, but apparently, one such cricket fan failed to watch the game. And that fan is Prithi Ashwin.
Prithi Ashwin, wife of Indian cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin, took to micro blogging site Twitter to express her regret on missing the game. She posted a tweet and exclaimed that she got to know about the proceedings of the match this morning. She regretfully added that she perhaps chooses the wrong nights to sleep early. Had she not slept early, she would have seen the herculean run chase of the Chennai Super Kings as well.
Here is what Prithi Ashwin tweeted:
“I just caught up on last nights match and OMG WHAT DID I JUST MISS. I pick the worst nights to sleep early,” Prithi Ashwin wrote in her tweet.

Talking about the game, the Chennai Super Kings had asked the Royal Challengers Bangalore to bat first. Riding on the twin fifties from AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock, the hosts got a brilliant start in the game. They slumped a little but cameos from Mandeep Singh and Washington Sundar took the RCB total to 205. In the run chase, CSK lost four wickets early. But it was the partnership between Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni that defined the course of the game.
The duo added 101 runs for the fifth wicket before Rayudu was run out on 82 that came off just 53 deliveries. After his dismissal, Dhoni found some support from Dwayne Bravo at the other end. Eventually, Dhoni finished things off in style for Chennai Super Kings with a six in the final over. He remained unbeaten on 70 off mere 34 deliveries with a four and 7 sixes.
