There is a reason why MS Dhoni has been one of the most adored and cherished figures in cricket. Furthermore, he added another story to his oral history when he decided to abate Mukesh Choudhary, who had dropped a catch on the previous delivery, over observing Shahbaz Ahmed’s wicket in the CSK-RCB clash.
After winning the toss, RCB decided to put CSK in to bat first and restricted their rivals to a mere score of 35/1 in the powerplay. But after that, some great batting from Robin Uthappa (88) and Shivam Dube (95*) ensured Chennai got a very competitive total of 216. In response, RCB got off to a torrid start as well and was restricted to just 50/4 with Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell back in the hut.
A good partnership between Suyash Prabhudessai and Shahbaz Ahmed set RCB back in the hunt however they were as yet something away. Before the end of the fourteenth over, RCB were at 131/5 with a chance of winning it yet it was Dhoni that won hearts. It might have been stunningly better for CSK had Mukesh taken a good catch to dismiss Prabhudessai in the twelfth over.

He had his chance at saving though. Dinesh Karthik attempted to go after a ball outside off stump on the fourth ball of the fourteenth over. however, he couldn’t get to it. The ball hit the toe end of the bat and went up in the air and Mukesh wound up under it once again.
In any case, the bowler wrecked it once more and the ball slipped through his fingers to give Karthik a respite. On the extremely next ball, Maheesh Theekshana fortified Shahbaz to give CSK something to celebrate. However, Dhoni showed his class as instead of celebrating, he went over to the Mukesh to have a conversation with the pacer. Netizens saw something similar and overflowed Twitter with their views.
