MS Dhoni batted exceptionally well in the knockout match against RCB on Saturday. He scored 25 off 13 balls to take his side closer to the target when they needed 17 runs off six balls to qualify for the IPL 2024 playoffs. In the final over, MS Dhoni smashed RCB bowler Yash Dayal for a massive 110-metre six but was dismissed the very next delivery. His dismissal dealt a big blow to CSK's chances as they eventually lost by 27 runs.
