Age is just a number; Class and experience are permanent; Those lines have been proved right by MS Dhoni in his latest masterclass innings at Mohali. He showed the world that he is still the boss in the game of cricket and the father of finishing roles. However, despite his brilliance, CSK were ended up 4 runs short of the tally but none of the cricket fanatics failed to give their admiration to MS Dhoni.
Initially, it was MS Dhoni once again to win the toss and chose to chase. But, the masterstroke from Ashwin to give Gayle the first game surprised CSK unit as they never found answers in stopping the free-flowing willow of Gayle. Joining the Windies star, KL Rahul too continued his onslaught by smacking the ball through covers often than not. However, veteran spinners, Harbhajan and Tahir joined to bring back the team on track.
CSK spinners brought back the team with few quick strikes in the middle overs. However, Karun Nair once again stood tall in the middle to stay until the end in order to hand a big tally of 197 runs on the board. In reply to the chase, Shane Watson and Murali Vijay started the initial two overs in a quick manner but unfortunately, failed to carry-on with the momentum thus handing the pressure on middle order unit.
Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni steadied the ship in the chase but the unfortunate run out turned the things in favour of Kings XI Punjab. However, the never give up MS Dhoni tried his best to shoulder his side over the line but was ended up 4 runs short. But, one can’t stop admiring MS Dhoni for the way he brought the things to get spiced up and almost turned the tables.
The win ensured Kings XI Punjab leapfrog Chennai Super Kings in the points table as they placed 2nd in the table while Chennai Super Kings dropped down to 3rd position. Coming to the upcoming assignments, Kings XI Punjab will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on 19th April while Chennai Super Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals at their new home venue on 20th April.
