Along with cinema personalities, cricket experts, former cricketers and even politicians expressed their admiration over Dhoini’s finishing ability, even at the age of 40.
Team Chennai Super Kings qualified for the finals by beating Delhi Capitals for the first time in the 14th edition of IPL tournament. Chasing 172 runs, CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad and one down batter Robin Uthappa displayed a special show. Captain MS Dhoni who came in to the crease during the 19th over, smashed 3 boundaries and one six to finish the match in style.
“It’s the full team effort. It was tough when we didn’t qualify last time. Emotions were quite high. Forget what has happened till now, we wanted to make the most of the 3-4 games left towards the end. A lot of our batters made the most of that period which is why I feel we have come back strongly this year. Credit goes to the support staff and everyone in the team. Without their character you can’t really comeback like this.” Dhoni said in the post match presentation.
With the win, Chennai Super Kings became the first team to qualify for the finals 9 times in the history of IPL.
