Twitter goes bonkers after MS Dhoni' s last-ball six
They said he was over. They said he could no longer chase down totals. But MSD’s critics have ended up with egg on their faces as the Captain cool turned the clock 7 years back with some clean striking and sensational finishing.
Game over, had a nice sleep now back to Daddy’s duties https://t.co/WMTqcG7SoQ— Mahendra Singh Dhoni (@msdhoni) April 26, 2018
Mahi has already scored 2 half centuries in this year’s IPL. IPL 2013 was the last season when he had achieved this feat and that too was a good five years back. This year, Chennai Super Kings made their comeback to the IPL and so did their Thala i.e. leader in Tamil.
With an unbeaten 70 run innings and a record partnership with Ambati Rayudu, Dhoni hit 7 towering sixes which included his winning smack off Corey Anderson over long on, reminiscent of his World Cup winnings six.
Twitter could just not handle Mahi’s heroics and went bonkers. Here is an interesting collection:
The Dhoni shot I loved the best was that six in the 19th over off Siraj’s yorker over backward point. Destroyed him as a bowler and paved the way for the win.??????#Dhoni— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) April 25, 2018
What an amazing game #DHONI whatta hair cut and what a shot. Great game of cricket.— Varun Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) April 25, 2018
Batting Aside, Just Look At The Commitment Of MS Dhoni Towards His Team. Despite Being A Wicket-keeper And Having Pads On, Quickly Ran Towards The Boundary To Save Runs For His Team. Haters Gonna Hate??????#RCBvCSK #WhistlePodu #Dhoni pic.twitter.com/6G2iasCUR0— Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) April 25, 2018
#Dhoni - 70 runs off 34 balls.. 7 SIXs..— Ramesh Bala (@rameshlaus) April 25, 2018
More than the stats, it's the cool and composed #Dhoni playing a Captain's innings and taking the team home for a comfortable victory.. ???? pic.twitter.com/yrkcmNR2Yg
#RCBvCSK why everyone loving #dhoni this is a reason? : "I would like to give this Man of the Match award to Ambati Rayudu as without his knock it wasn't possible to win, he gave the platform at the top, he deserves this award, not me."— dineshdhanush (@dineshd17082917) April 25, 2018
