Former India and Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni turned back the clock as he pulled off a classic chase against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians. CSK was chasing a modest target of 155 but lost their way in the early stage of their innings. MI took early wickets and put the Yellow Army on the backfoot.
As the back and forth continued, Chennai needed 17 runs in the last over and it was MS Dhoni's time at the crease. After being at the non-striker's end for the first two balls, he smashed a six on the third ball which was followed by a pull shot that went straight over short fine leg. With six runs required from two balls, Dhoni took a couple and then tonked Unadkat for another boundary, capping off a great chase. The 40-year-old ended the game with 28 runs with 13 balls while hitting three fours and one six.
After the match as players were shaking hands, a video surfaced of new CSK captain Ravindra Jadeja bowing down to MS Dhoni as he pulled off an extraordinary chase to give the Yellow Army their second win of the season.
