MS Dhoni: ‘Mahi maar raha hai…’, a slow start and a dashing ending. So what happened Chennai lost. CSK fans are also looking for a reason to be happy in this defeat. Cricket fans cannot forget what happened at Wankhede in Mumbai on Saturday (March 26). Initially, Dhoni (MS Dhoni) and Ravindra Jadeja also struggled to rotate the strike. The bowlers of Kolkata Knight Riders kept a tight grip on the former and current captains of Chennai Super Kings. But then came a time when the fans said – ‘Mahi is killing…’.
MS Dhoni crushed all the lingering doubts about his batting abilities as he stole the show at the Wankhede Stadium with his crucial and quickfire knock in the ongoing opening match of IPL 2022 between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
MS Dhoni, who recently gave up his captaincy duties, walked out to bat at number 7 when Chennai Super Kings was reeling at 67/5 in the 11th over and from there he took over the responsibility of his squad on his shoulders. He fought like a lone warrior as he smashed the KRK bowlers to all over the ground.
