Mahendra Singh Dhoni's reflexes are only getting faster. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain was at his best against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their top of the table Indian Premier League (IPL) match at Chepauk on Tuesday. In the 11th over of the match, bowled by Imran Tahir, India's future batting star Shubman Gill tried to flick the first ball with a big stride, forgetting who's behind the wicket.
A googly beat the batsman, between bat and pad, and Dhoni collected the ball despite blindsided and completed yet another super-fast stumping. KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan was one of the many who witnessed the brilliance of Dhoni. And a stunned SRK didn't move.
Watch it here:
After winning the toss, CSK restricted KKR to 108/9 despite a fighting fifty from Andre Russell. The winner of the match will take the top spot in the table after six round.
Even though team 'Chennai Super Kings' has won all their home games so far but captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni remains unhappy with the nature of the pitch.
"I don't think we want to be playing on these tracks. It becomes too low scoring. It becomes slightly difficult for our batsmen as well. After losing (Dwayne) Bravo, it is slightly difficult for us to get the combination right," said Dhoni at the post-match presentation.
"We have been cribbing about the track but we have ended up winning the game."
The inspirational skipper was all praise for veteran spinners Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir, who delivered yet again.
"The age is on their side (laughs). Bhajji has done well in whatever games he has played. I have fallen back on Tahir and he has done the job. He has confidence in me. He has got a very good flipper.
