The match between the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium turned out to be nail biter with the home side winning by just 1 run in the end after Chennai needed 26 to win off the last over. MS Dhoni played a captain’s knock of 84 not out off just 48 balls with with five fours and seven sixes but RCB somehow managed to hold their nerves to win the encounter by one run.
RCB had the game well and truely in the bag when CSK needed 26 to win in the last over but MS Dhoni completely tore apart Umesh Yadav to take 24 off the first five balls before Parthiv Patel pulled off a last ball run out to save the day for the home side. The first ball of the last over from Umesh Yadav was a short ball and Dhoni had no difficulty in dispatching it for a boundary through square leg.
Umesh Yadav did not learn from his mistake and bowled the next ball on a similar length and Dhoni was once again upto the task, smashing it into the roof of the stands for a 111m monster. It was a nothing ball from the Indian fast bowler and Dhoni made sure it got the treatment it deserved, sending it all the way into the roof for the biggest six in the tournament so far.
