MS Dhoni and his monstrous sixes are a part of cricket folklore. He might not be in the best of forms but time and again, the champion batsman displays just why he is one of the most brutal hitters of a cricket ball.
Dhoni showed that again during the ongoing fixture against SunRisers Hyderabad when he smoked rookie pacer T Natarajan for 102 meter six over long-on.
Dhoni, who had come in to bat following the dismissal of Shane Watson in the 17th over, scored a 13-ball 21, which included two fours and a six, all of which came against T Natarajan,
Natarajan, however, had the last laugh as he ultimately dismissed MS Dhoni immediately after getting smoked for a six after the former Indian cricketer miscued a near-perfect wide yorker straight to extra-cover, where Kane Williamson did not make any mistake.
Earlier, CSK made a rare experiment as they slotted Sam Curran to the top of the order. Curran repaid the faith as he took the attack to Khaleel Ahmed in the powerplay before eventually getting castled by Sandeep Sharma.
Shane Watson [42 off 38 balls] and Ambati Rayudu [41 off 34 balls] perished in an attempt to up the ante in the final 5 overs after having stitched a rather slow 81-run-stand for the second wicket.
CSK, however, ended on a high courtesy Ravindra Jadeja’s whirlwind 10-ball 25 to eventually post a competetive total of 6-167 in 20 overs.
