Chennai Super Kings And especially for the fans of MS Dhoni, IPL 2023 season is proving to be special. Even though the desire to see Dhoni playing big innings is not being fulfilled, big shots are definitely being seen with the bat of the Chennai captain in the style of the old days. Not only are the fans happy with this, but he has also played an important role in saving Chennai many times. Dhoni did something similar in 9 balls against Delhi Capitals.
Like every match of this season, once again at the Chepauk Stadium, the fans of Chennai Super Kings were not much disappointed at the fall of their team’s wickets as with every falling wicket, the time for Dhoni to come to the crease was getting closer. Then in this match the team was also in a bit of trouble. In such a situation, Chennai also needed important runs from Dhoni.
Team in trouble, Dhoni rained fire
Like every time, once again Dhoni came for batting at number eight. He entered in the 17th over and at that time the score was only 126 runs. After coming to the crease, Dhoni did nothing for 2-3 balls but then hit a four off Khaleel Ahmed. Dhoni again sent the next ball for 4 runs.
After this, Dhoni hit another six like a long on in the 19th over. In total, Dhoni hit 20 runs in 8 balls. He was dismissed on the ninth ball.
