IPL 2021: DC Vs CSK: MS Dhoni Puts CSK in IPL 2021 Final

MS Dhoni puts CSK in IPL 2021 final with a throwback 18 off six balls and hunts the target of 173 runs against Delhi Capitals. Chennai Super Kings achieved the target of 173 with two balls to spare. There was a spate of half-centuries – Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 70, Robin Uthappa’s 63, Prithvi Shaw’s 60, and Rishabh Pant’s 51 not out — but all that would be remembered from the match would be Dhoni’s 18, as it often happens when he stays till the end.

The rumours of Dhoni’s weakening finishing prowess were seen exaggerated on Sunday’s evening. The validation came in a brief with a knock of 18 of 6 balls.

Initially, when he strode in, surprisingly ahead of the in-form batsman Ravindra Jadeja, a few scowls and frowns accompanied him to the crease after the fall of Ruturaj Gaikwad. The required run was 24 off 12 balls. It was a peak Dhoni standards, but not quite as straightforward these days because of his out-form, but he showed how wrong were in misjudging him.

The match though was set by Robin Uthappa and Ruturaj Gaikwad with outstanding half-centuries. Gaikwad is adjudged Man of the Match for his brilliant knock of 70 and helped CSK to win the match.
