Even though the lion is old, he has not forgotten to hunt. Though Dhoni’s international career of cricket has come to an end, he is still making an impression through the IPL cricket. Last Thursday’s thrilling win over Mumbai Indians once again showed his talent. And he once again set the example of why Mahendra Singh Dhoni is called the best finisher in the world. CSK chased down the target of 156 on the final ball.
Against Mumbai Indians, Dhoni’s innings 28 of 13 bolls was enough to make the difference in the distance of Mumbai. Despite leaving captaincy in the IPL in 2022, Rabindra Jadeja’s captaincy Chennai Super Kings has been able to re-establish the winning streak with the help of Dhoni after losing consecutive first-round matches. Chennai Super Kings captain Rabindra Jadeja bowed his head in praise of Dhoni and at the end of the match. This is probably Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s last IPL, but he is leaving the mark of his cricketing talent in the last IPL.
“We were very tense the way game was going. But the great finisher of the game was still there, so we knew we had a chance. He’s still here and doing it for us,” says CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja.
Mumbai Indians are the first team to record seven straight defeats at the start. after loosing from CSK MI out from the playoff race.
