MS Dhoni has set a benchmark for himself in the ongoing edition of IPL. He has managed to attract the viewers' attention with his batting, keeping and leadership abilities in this competition. He has once again grabbed the spotlight for yet another outstanding work behind the stumps. He took a brilliant catch to send his opposite number Rohit Sharma back to the dugout.
The incident happened in the eighth over bolwed by Ravindra Jadeja. Rohit tried to work the ball towards the cover for a single. But instead of making good connection with the bat, the ball took a slight inside edge of the bat and went straight into Dhoni's safe pair of gloves. However, replays shows that the ball had not been collected perfectly. It was about to pop out from Dhoni's hands through the gap but Dhoni held on to it and ensured that the ball was glued to his hands. This video was posted on Twitter.
Three-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians are eyeing their first home win of the season as they face defending champions and three-time winners Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday. CSK have registered a hat-trick of wins coming into this contest and they will be hoping to continue their unbeaten run. While the hosts are looking to overcome their eight wicket loss against Kings XI Punjab on Saturday, the 'Yellow Army' are upbeat after a close eight-run win over Rajasthan Royals.
Mumbai were put into bat after Dhoni had won the toss and decided to chase. They were able to get breakthroughs at regular intervals as they had Mumbai at 50/3. Suryakumar Yadav and Krunal Pandya then stitched in a 62 run stand for the fourth wicket. Yadav scored a quickfire 43-ball 59 at a strike rate of 137.21 and he was supported well by Pandya who had played a cameo of a 32-ball 42 at a strike rate of 131.25.
