Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 18 off six balls to helped Chennai Super Kings book a spot in the IPL final for the ninth time. Dhoni turned back the clocks in the final over as he got the strike with 12 runs needed from 5 balls. He struck consecutive boundaries off Tom Curran; slapping over extra cover followed by an inner edge running through fine leg. Dhoni then finished off in style with a pull-through mid-wicket, help Chennai Super Kings (CSK) beat Delhi Capitals (DC) by four wickets and with two balls to spare in Qualifier 1 at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.
