IPL 2018: MS Dhoni’s fake throw scares Ravindra Jadeja on the field

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are currently facing Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MCA International Stadium in Pune. Both the teams are ruling the points table by winning most of the games. While the visitors have qualified for the playoffs, the Men in Yellow need only a win to confirm their berth as well. The skipper MS Dhoni is generally not known to express himself much on the field but this season he has been different. However, he hilariously scared Ravindra Jadeja on the field while fielding today with a fake throw during the first innings.

The funny incident happened in the 7th over of the innings when Hyderabad team was batting. Harbhajan Singh delivered the last ball of the over which was nudged by Shikhar Dhawan in front of short mid-wicket. There was an anticipation of a second run and Dhoni realised that only for him to run in order to prevent the run. Eventually, he reached there and collected the ball with Jadeja also running from deep mid-wicket towards him.

Suddenly, he faked and bluffed his teammate by throwing the ball on Jadeja’s face which scared everyone. It was a hilarious moment as everyone including Dhoni enjoyed the moment. The commentators on air also had a light discussion over it.

Dhawan and Williamson shine again

As far as the game is concerned, the hosts won the toss and opted to field first as the pitch assisted the bowlers up front and Deepak Chahar who returned from injury bowled well. But the duo of Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan took their time to settle in and then launched an assault on the opposition surprisingly in the middle. They once again stitched a partnership of more than 100 runs to set the perfect platform for the middle order to come.

Both scored half-centuries and strangled CSK as the score in excess of 190 looked very much possible. But they were dismissed in the successive which sucked the momentum out of the innings as the middle order once again failed to take the advantage and the Men in Yellow pounced in on the opportunity. In the end, they could post a score of 179 which was a decent effort from the bowlers given that they had threatened to post a much more daunting total previously.
