The Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) hosted the reigning champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday, May 18. In what was a do-or-die clash for both the sides, it was the Faf du Plessis-led side who came out on top to seal the fourth and final playoffs berth in the IPL 2024.

After RCB’s 27-run win against CSK, wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik called MS Dhoni’s massive six as the turning point in the game. Dhoni, who was up against RCB’s Yash Dayal needed 17 runs off final over. The veteran keeper-batter smashed the first ball of the 20th over for a six, leaving 11 runs off four balls. This six did massive damage to CSK than RCB as the officials called for a new ball.

“MS Dhoni hitting that six outside the ground was the best thing that happened,” Dinesh Karthik exclaimed. “It gave us a new ball which was much better to bowl with,” he further added revealing the reason behind that massive six.
