MS Dhoni reminded the fans of his capabilities as a finisher as he played a mind-blowing knock of 13-ball 28 to win the game for his franchise on the last delivery of the game against Mumbai Indians. The 40-year-old hit three fours and a six after coming into bat at number seven and proved again that age is just a number. Needing 17 off the last over, CSK did not have the best of starts losing Dwaine Pretorius off the very first delivery.
Bravo took a single off the second delivery and left Dhoni with 16 to get off the last four deliveries. The veteran batter hit a six and a four off the next two deliveries to bring down the equation to 6 needed off 2 deliveries. He took a quick two off the fifth delivery and finally, Dhoni finished off in style with a four off the last delivery to win the game for his side by three wickets in the end.

After the win, Dhoni was seen speaking with the youngster Hrithik Shokeen who managed to impress on his debut and the dugout was up there to shake hands as well. Skipper Ravindra Jadeja who could not get going with the bat today bowed down to Dhoni for his unbelievable finishing skills and it was a moment to cherish for all the Chennai Super Kings fans who have been desperate to see their side do well.
Mumbai Indians had the game in their grasp for the most part of the second half and they bowled some good death overs to keep the pressure on the batting side. However, MS Dhoni was always there to keep them on the toes and with the loss, Mumbai is almost out of the race for the playoffs with seven losses in seven games.
Earlier, Mukesh Choudhary bowled a brilliant opening spell to restrict the Mumbai side to 155 onboard on account of Tilak Varma’s unbeaten half-century. CSK did panic with wickets falling at regular intervals, however, the partnership between Rayudu and Uthappa kept the side in the hunt and laid the foundation for the final flourish.
