WATCH : Dhoni screams Mitchell go back to keep strike


Sam Curran’s decision to field first after winning the toss paid off well for Punjab Kings, as they restricted the opposition to just 102 runs in 15 overs.

As Sameer Rizvi and Ruturaj Gaikwad fell in the slog overs, Moeen Ali and MS Dhoni stepped in to take charge with the bat, aiming to finish with a flourish.

In the 19th over, Rahul Chahar conceded a mere three runs, with MS Dhoni facing four balls. Following this, Arshdeep Singh conceded six runs, including two wides, in the 20th over before an unusual incident involving Dhoni.

Arshdeep, bowling a low full-toss wide outside the stumps, saw Dhoni miscue the ball towards sweeper cover. Although a simple single was available, with Daryl Mitchell already halfway down the pitch, Dhoni signaled him to return, denying the run.

Known for his quirky antics with the bat at the end of innings, Dhoni confidently backed himself to prevent a well-set batter from scoring. He gestured for Mitchell to return to the bowler’s end, attempting to trap him for a run, sparking excitement among fans on Twitter.
