MS Dhoni vs SRH

MS Dhoni scored 14 off 11 balls and finished the game with a six against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday. In the process, CSK became the first team to qualify for the IPL 2021 playoffs. CSKneeded 26 off the last four overs when MS Dhoni walked out to bat. In his typical fashion, the CSK skipper took the game to the last over and finished it off with a six. It was also MSD’s 50th six in the last over of an IPL innings.

Former captains, Sunil Gavaskar and Kevin Pietersen relished MS Dhoni’s heroics against SRH as they looked back to the Dhoni of the old. Dhoni finished off the game with his signature six-off SRH pacer Siddarth Kaul. While CSK qualified for the playoffs, SRH was eliminated from the tournament in the process.

“He (Dhoni) does it so often. He takes it into the last over. When the supporters are biting the nail – they also know he is going to do it. But that anxiety, that you feel. He has done it so many times in his career,” Gavasakar said on Star Sports after the match.

“Dhoni has done it for so many years, he keeps doing it and doing it and doing it. What he has done now, should strike fear into the opposition,” Pietersen added.

“He has not been in the form for two seasons, so if he starts doing that now here, then, goodness, they got one hand on the trophy, they really do. They are serious out, on these conditions that are really good.”

“They got the Hazlewood effect, and the Jadeja effect, and the openers have been really good. So, if Dhoni starts coming off now, finishes games off, then others team have a problem. Scary proposition,” he signed off.

MS Dhoni has now scored 66 runs in 11 games this season after Thursday’s heroics against SRH. This still is his worst season in terms of runs scored in an IPL season.
