Biggest sixes and MS Dhoni is always a better love story in the international cricket arena. Today Dhoni gave yet another proof of it by landing Chahal’s delivery over the roof of Chinnaswamy stadium in IPL 2017. The six made umpires to ask for a new ball to replace it.
Gripping story –
It was in the final delivery of 14th over of the Pune innings. MS Dhoni who mistimed the previous delivery of Chahal to mid wicket thrashed him into the orbit by a humongous six over the long-on region which made the spectators go awe at the shot.
MS Dhoni usually turns on his beast mode in the final overs of the match but in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Chinnaswamy stadium he looked fluent right from the word go and launched himself with a couple of boundaries in a single over.

Unfortunately, Dhoni lost his wicket in the final delivery of the 16th over bowled by Shane Watson. He dragged the ball on to his wicket in an attempt to score big shot through mid-wicket. Dhoni ended his innings for 28 runs in 25 balls by numbering 3 fours and a six.
So far in IPL 2017, MS Dhoni underwent a lot of criticism with the below par scores of 12,5,11,5 in the first four games of the tourney and this knock of 28 runs against RCB could give him a moral boost to get going in the upcoming matches of the tourney.
