How did MS Dhoni perform against Gujarat Titans?
Gujarat Titans clashed against Chennai Super Kings in the opening qualifier at the MA Chidambaram stadium. When Dhoni entered the game in the 19th over, CSK fans believed that their skipper would change the tide of the match with a few huge sixes and guide the side to a respectable score. The happiness was fleeting, though, as Dhoni fell short, leaving the Chennai fans speechless in shock. Their aspirations were, though, dashed when Dhoni’s innings only lasted for two balls before he was dismissed by Mohit Sharma’s slower ball, leaving the crowd in complete stillness.
How CSK fans reacted to Dhoni’s dismissal at the hands of Mohit Sharma?
Mohit Sharma managed to bag the important wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad and even managed to double his wicket tally, when he got rid of CSK skipper MS Dhoni in the death over. Despite his reputation as a finisher, MS Dhoni scored just one run in two balls today after being inserted at the end of the 18th over. Mohit’s delivery was slower and was done on a full length. Hardik Pandya, the captain of GT, received a straightforward catch from MS Dhoni at cover when Dhoni attempted to touch it on the offside but failed to time it well.
Since Mohit Sharma dismissed MS Dhoni so early, numerous CSK fans flocked to Mohit Sharma’s Instagram account and left hateful words in the comments section. This incident is eerily similar to actions of RCB supporters, where they humiliated Shubman Gill and his sister recently after Gill’s century thwarted play-off chances of RCB.
