Today, Chennai Super Kings saw the face of victory under Dhoni’s captaincy. Dhoni has proved once again that he has not yet become the best finisher in the world.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is very successful in the fight to turn around. Dhoni proved that ‘old rice leads to rice’ by defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 20 runs at Dubai Cricket Stadium!
Chennai did not give any such target to Hyderabad in terms of runs. However, Chennai won the toss and elected to bat first. Dhoni, the master of surprises, dropped Sam Karan again to open the day. However, Chennai was a bit shaky after losing Faf du Plessis and Karan.
Then Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson took the helm of the match with strong hands. He was going to hit. But the ball did not move. The two of them were fighting with clenched teeth. Shane Watson was out for 42 and Rayudu for 41. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rabindra Jadeja have increased the pace of the run a lot. In the end, Chennai lost 6 wickets in 20 overs and scored 16 runs. Dhoni made 21 off 13 balls and Jadeja made 25 off 10 balls. Both of them didn’t score much, but the more they played, the better the innings. Hyderabad Brigade bowled brilliantly. Especially Sandeep Sharma. Sandeep took 2 wickets for 19 runs in 4 overs. On the other hand, Khalil Ahmed and Thangrasu Natarajan took 2 wickets each.
Sunrisers Hyderabad fell face down first with the bat. Team captain David Warner was the first to be killed by Sam Karan. Manish Pandey was run out. Then Johnny Bairstow and Ken Williamson caught the match a bit. But Hyderabad lost the match again after Bairstow was out.
Ken Williamson batted brilliantly. He gave a brilliant innings of 56 off 39 balls. After that Sunrisers Hyderabad started losing wickets at a stormy pace. Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar went back to the pavilion with a few runs. However, as soon as Rashid Khan got down, he started beating again. The game was so tense that it seemed Rashid would win the match.
But no. Shardul Tagore and Diane Bravora gave the last smile. After bowling two wide balls in a row, Shardul Tagore took the wicket of Rashid Khan to take Chennai to victory. And in the last over, Bravo made a bet. Bravo stopped Sunrisers Hyderabad with 146 runs in the 20th over.
Bravo and Karna Sharma took 2 wickets each. Shyam Karan, Rabindra Jadeja and Shardul Tagore took 1 wicket each. Chennai Super Kings got 6 points after winning the match. Rabindra Jadeja is the man of the match with great fielding, 1 wicket, and runs in an aggressive mood. However, it has to be said that Chennai Super Kings saw the face of victory under Dhoni’s captaincy today. Dhoni has proved once again that he has not yet become the world’s best finisher.
