The El Classico of the Indian Premier League delivered a jaw-dropping contest between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings on Thursday at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Former Chennai skipper MS Dhoni rolled back the years after he finished things in style for his side by scoring 16 runs in the last four balls.
While Mumbai could not live up to fans’ expectations by registering the seventh loss on the trot, Dhoni’s performance was a treat for all the Chennai supporters. In one of the videos doing the rounds on social media, a kid donning CSK’s yellow jersey was trolled by the Mumbai supporters in the DY stadium during a nail-biting contest. CSK fans had to go through an emotional rollercoaster during the last over, with Chennai needing 17 runs to beat the host.
When Jaydev Unadkat began bowling in the final over, Dhoni was not even on strike, leaving supporters anxious. Two balls later, CSK even lost a wicket and scored just one run. With just four balls left and 16 runs needed, Thala did what he’s always been known for, sealing the deal with his powerful shots.
As Dhoni turned the game, the kid took his perfect revenge by rushing back to the same Mumbai supporters and chanting ‘CSK…CSK’ in front of them.
