WATCH : Dhoni goes to SKY mode with unconventional shot resulting in a sixer


Choosing to bowl first proved beneficial for the Lucknow Super Giants as they swiftly dismissed Rachin Ravindra and Ruturaj Gaikwad during the powerplay.

Despite the efforts of Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja, who guided their team to 51/2 by the powerplay’s end, their partnership failed to yield significant runs.

The game shifted momentum as Chennai lost crucial wickets, including Rahane, Shivam Dube, and Sameer Rizvi, leaving them struggling at 90/5 in 12.2 overs. With Moeen Ali’s departure in the 18th over, all attention turned to MS Dhoni to rescue the innings for CSK.

In a pivotal moment during the 19th over, Dhoni opted for an unconventional shot, sending the ball sailing for a six off Mohsin Khan. As Mohsin delivered a length ball just outside the off stump in the second ball of the 19th over, Dhoni elegantly moved across the stumps, connecting with the ball’s trajectory.

The 42-year-old veteran executed a scoop, resulting in a top edge that flew over Lucknow’s wicketkeeper KL Rahul, much to the delight of the packed crowd, witnessing Dhoni’s innovative stroke play.

The Twitter community marveled at Dhoni’s creativity and skill, praising his ability to adapt and surprise with his unique shot selection.
