MS Dhoni yet again played the role of a saviour for CSK, as he steered the team almost to the brink of victory at Chinnaswamy.

Dhoni smashed 84 runs off 48 balls while chasing a target of 162, which involved 5 fours and 7 sixes in his aggressive display of batting. Despite scoring such a knock and remaining unbeaten, Dhoni’s heroics went in vain as CSK was denied a win due to the final ball run-out.

 

Despite CSK losing the match, Dhoni’s scintillating knock was applauded all over the twitter, with some even calling the skipper to be made the Prime Minister of the country.

Dhoni’s knock was enough to prove that why he still is an integral part of the team, ahead of the World Cup 2019.

Chasing a target of 162, CSK needed 26 runs from the last over which was bowled by Umesh Yadav. MS Dhoni completely changed the match in CSK’s favour by smashing four and three sixes against Yadav.

CSK needed only two runs from the last ball, but Dhoni was unsuccessful to make a contact on the last delivery which was a slower one.

Parthiv Patel was the top-scorer for his team, scoring 53 runs in 37 balls, as RCB managed to put a score of 161 on the board. With this win, RCB has acquired six points from their ten matches and still are sitting at the bottom of the league.

 

Due to the early collapse of CSK’s batting line-up, the team was down at 28-4 when the skipper walked to the crease in the sixth over and stayed till the end of the chase.

Post the match, many fans on Twitter started calling Dhoni to be made the next Prime Minister of the country.

Dhoni and Rayudu were successful in putting up a 55 run partnership for the fifth-wicket, easing the pressure for the team.

MS Dhoni remained as a lone warrior for CSK till the end . RCB skipper Virat Kohli also applauded Dhoni's efforts.
