Chennai Super Kings (CSK) keeper-batter MS Dhoni was at his brutal best in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 game against Delhi Capitals. The former skipper of the team set the stage on fire and played a magnificent innings even though it came in a losing cause.

Chennai Super Kings were down and dusted in the chase of 192 runs and it seemed that they would lose the game pretty quickly. But MS Dhoni revived the hopes of fans and brought his team back into the game with his brutal power-hitting as soon as he came out to bat.

MS Dhoni started off his innings with a four and after that didn’t look back. He took bowlers to cleaners and brought his vintage best. The keeper-batted showed no mercy on the bowlers and made sure that he made the crowd berserk at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. 

MS Dhoni looked in great touch and hardly put a foot wrong in his innings. The keeper-batter muscled the ball all over the park. But couldn’t take his team home as in the end target was left too much. Mukesh Kumar executed his plans brilliantly and won the match for his team by 20 runs.
