On Sunday, Mahendra Singh Dhoni played a brilliant inning against Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League match, surpassing years of expectations. It was a vintage MS Dhoni show in Visakhapatnam as the crowd went wild when he stepped in with the bat. The atmosphere was electrifying, and Dhoni made sure the supporters had a special moment before they left. He batted for the first time this season, and he did not let anyone down.

However, his cameo wasn’t enough to save Chennai Super Kings from defeat as Delhi, led by Rishabh Pant, claimed their first win of the season with a 20-run victory.

37 out of 16

In the 17th over, when the match seemed slipping away from CSK’s reach, the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman stepped up to bat. Nevertheless, Dhoni’s inning of 37 runs off 16 balls mesmerized everyone present in the stadium. The former captain hit 4 boundaries and three sixes.

CSK needed 41 runs in the last over, and Dhoni, on the first ball by Enrique Nortje, smashed a boundary over extra cover. Nortje failed to get his line and length right as the CSK stalwart continued to punish him. On the second ball, a full toss, Dhoni went for a six over midwicket. Things kept getting worse for Proteas’ quick bowler as he threw another full toss on the fourth ball, which went for four runs.

Strike rate of 231.25.

Dhoni made sure that the fans got to witness his vintage side on the last ball. It was yet another full toss, and Dhoni smashed it over extra cover to finish his innings with a strike rate of 231.25.

However, chasing a target of 192 runs, CSK was troubled by fast bowlers Khaleel Ahmed (2/21) and Mukesh Kumar (3/21), getting all-out for 171 runs at six wickets down.

Earlier, during the first innings, the great wicketkeeper had achieved a significant milestone by taking a lightning catch during Delhi Capitals’ innings. It was the fourth ball of the 11th over, and DC’s comeback opener Prithvi Shaw played a cut shot off Ravindra Jadeja’s delivery, which landed straight into Dhoni’s hands.
