Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the backbone of the team Chennai Super Kings. Though he has left the captaincy and handed over it to the young and talented Ravindra Jadeja, he has always seen giving guidance to the captain. Under his direction, the team was making all the strategies. After all, Dhoni is the strongest player and he has all the knowledge and experience in the field and on the field.

Till now, he has proven the best captain, and Chennai Super Kings is a team that has won many matches under Dhoni’s captain. It means that Dhoni was not only the best wicketkeeper. The best batsman, but he also is a successful captain. In IPL 2022, Dhoni left the captaincy, but the 43-year-old Dhoni is practiced well for the matches and has scored well enough.

From the beginning of the tournament IPL 2022, The Chennai Super Kings was consistently receiving defeat. A team that was a winner in earlier times of IPL is now struggling to win is a worrying thing. But now the team is trying hard to bounce back to their original position.

Dhoni is actually popular for his perfect finishing in the match. Recently, all have experienced why he is called so.

In the last over of the match, Dhoni’s brilliant batting defeated Mumbai Indians in the 33rd match of IPL. Dhoni scored an unbeaten 28 runs in 13 balls. He scored 3 fours and 1 six at a strike rate of over 215 to give CSK its second win of the season.

It was a thrill of the last over.

Chasing the target of 156 runs for Mumbai Indians, CSK’s two wickets fell early. Ruturaj Gaikwad failed once again. He returned to the pavilion without opening the account. Robin Uthappa 30, Mitchell Santner 11, Ambati Rayudu 40, Shivam Dubey 13. Captain Ravindra Jadeja got out after scoring 3 runs. After this, the entire responsibility of winning the team fell on former captain MS Dhoni and Dwayne Pretorius. Pretorius scored 22 runs in 14 balls but he went out lbw on the first ball of the last over.

The result of the match came out in the last over. CSK needed 17 runs in 5 balls after Pretorius was dismissed on the first ball of JaydevUnadkat. Bravo took a run on the second ball and gave the strike to Dhoni. Dhoni hit a six on the third ball, a four on the fourth, and took 2 runs on the fifth. Now four runs were needed from the last ball. Dhoni was in form. He picked up the full toss ball on the pads from below and hit a hard boundary towards the backyard square leg.

Hopes of reaching the playoffs are alive for CSK

With this, the hopes of reaching the playoffs for Mumbai Indians have ended. Mumbai Indians have lost the first 7 matches out of 14 matches of the league. It was a do-or-die match for MI. Even if she wins in the next 7 matches, she will not be able to reach the playoffs because the team will need 16 points for this. After winning the next seven matches, MI will get only 14 points. Dhoni hit a hard four on the last ball to give CSK its second win of the season.

A time when the team was seeming to get an early exit from the tournament and a time comes when the team is expected to reach the playoff is a matter of destiny and the constant hard work that the team has shown.

Now, we just have to look forward to watching and enjoying the thrill ahead in the tournament when the equation between CSK and Dhoni will prove once again.
