MS Dhoni is a master tactician. During his captaincy stint for Team India and Chennai Super Kings, Dhoni showed many times that he has great cricket intelligence and game awareness. Although the wicketkeeper batter is not a skipper anymore, his strategic masterstrokes were again on display during the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Virat Kohli was dismissed on 1. While trying to hit a flick shot, the former RCB skipper was caught at deep square. The wicket first looked like a lucky escape for the bowler and CSK but it turned out it was all planned by former CSK skipper MS Dhoni.

In the video, it can be seen that before the wicket ball, MSD asked the fine-leg fielder to stand at deep square. The move turned out to be a masterstroke as the next ball went straight towards the fielder at deep square. The move by Dhoni helped CSK to get the big wicket of Virat Kohli.
CSK register their first win of IPL 2022
Chennai Super Kings finally opened their account in IPL 2022 as they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 23 runs. RCB missed their premium bowler Harshal Patel badly, as Shivam Dube (95*) and Robin Uthappa (88) belted the RCB bowling line-up and powered CSK to 216. In reply, RCB managed to post 193 despite a stunning knock by Dinesh Karthik (34 off 14).
