MS Dhoni’s last over heroics helped Chennai Super Kings beat Mumbai Indians by three wickets at the DY Patil Stadium on Thursday evening. Chennai chased down 156 on the final ball, with Dhoni finishing things in style by smashing 16 runs in the last 4 balls.
Mumbai Indians posted 155 on board as Tilak Varma top-scored for MI with 51 not out from 43 balls, while Suryakumar Yadav chipped in with a 21-ball 32. A day after, Mumbai Indians posted a video of a hilarious conversation which took place between CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja and Mumbai Indians batter Suryakumar Yadav after the match. In the video, both the Indian cricketers seem to be in a happy mood and shared insights from the match.
While, Jadeja jokingly asked SKY to not play shots all around the park as it gets challenging to place the players (In Hindi: Bhai Kaha Kaha shot marega, Kabhi idhar, Kabhi udhaar). In response, SKY hails Jadeja for perfectly putting the fielder at deep square leg (In Hindi: barabar fielder baithaya the jagha pe). Both the quality Indian cricketers shared laughter and pleasantry in the video.
"Tune toh barabar bithaake rakha tha ek aadmi."

Notably, Suryakumar Yadav played a crucial 32 run cameo in just 21 balls before Mitchell Santner dimissed him in the 8th over of the game. Mumbai Indians were tottering at 23-3 in 2.5 overs, but a brief partnership between Surykumar Yadav and Tilak Verma rescued Mumbai from difficult situation. Later, Verma also built an important partnership with Hrithik Shokeen (25 off 25) to add valuable runs on board.
