Last night at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, MS Dhoni almost pulled off the unfathomable as he was in with a humungous task of scoring 26 runs in the last over and help his team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The 37-year-old youngster took Umesh Yadav to the cleaners and took the game right down to the last delivery.
However, some sharp piece of glovework from Parthiv Patel denied MSD the victory. Earlier in the tournament, he battled back spasm and took his team over the line against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Jaipur. With 314 runs from nine games, the Jharkhand-born veteran is presently the Super Kings’ leading run-scorer in this edition’s IPL.
CSK are next scheduled to play the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai and Dhoni is again expected to play a pivotal part. CSK has an incredible record at the Chepauk and SRH need to pull a rabbit out of the hat in order to outclass Dhoni and the CSK in their own den.
