MS Dhoni was back at the helm of affairs for the Chennai Super Kings. The legendary leader also brought back Chennai to the winning way as the Men in Yellow beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 13 runs at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Sunday.
While the scoreboard might suggest it to be a close game, Chennai were pretty dominant from the word go and had sealed the deal with an over to go as Hyderbad needed 38 off 6 deliveries which weren’t possible unless a bowler bowled a wide or no-ball.
Choudhary, who had a great day with the ball, scalping 4 wickets, was trusted to bowl the final over with only formalities remaining. While he did go for a six and a four on the first two balls which did not irk Dhoni, the moment he drifted down the legs side, even captain cool decided to have a word with the bowler telling him to not try anything fancy at this stage.
A video of Dhoni’s animated gesture has gone viral on the internet.

Despite the win though, Chennai remain at the number 9 position on the points table with 6 points from 9 games. However, they are now tied in the points section with eighth-place Kolkata Knight Riders and it is only a matter of time before they escalate in the points table if they stitch a few wins together.
CSK will next play Royal Challengers Bangalore at the same venue on May 4.
