CSK needed 24 off 11 balls which came down to 13 off the final over. With Kagiso Rabada in the wings, Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant gave the ball to Tom Curran who had taken three wickets before bowling the final over. Dhoni muscled a six off Avesh Khan and hit three fours off Tom Curran in the final over. The England pacer surprisingly, opted to bowl slower balls to Dhoni as he saved his best for the last after being woefully out of form earlier in the UAE leg.

Dhoni also spoke about the win after the game and his knock which came at the right time for CSK.
“It was crucial innings. They were using the bigger boundary very well. I have done a lot in the tournament. We are one side that hasn’t done promotions a lot. If a Shardul or a Deepak, they can look to get a boundary from the first ball” said MSD.
