MS Dhoni smashes monstrous six on Arshdeep Singh

It is been a unique IPL season for MS Dhoni. The batter is free from the captaincy responsibility and plays as a dedicated finisher. In IPL 2024, Dhoni has consistently come in the death overs and has given his side the final impetus. He seemingly succeeded in providing CSK the momentum again, and in the process smashed a huge six over the sweeper cover region. It was the second last delivery of the 20th over, bowled by Arshdeep Singh. It landed in the zone of MS Dhoni, who completely bludgeoned it.

After the spectacular strike, MS Dhoni looked to strike another one on the final ball of the innings, but could not get the ideal connection. He was dropped by Harshal Patel, who was stationed at the short third-man place. Patel completed the job by dismissing Dhoni through the mode of run-out. It is MS Dhoni's first dismissal in IPL 2024.

As per the latest score, PBKS have attained the mark of 122/3 after 13 overs, and are well on track to beat Chennai Super Kings in their backyard.
