What a match!
Never say never when MS Dhoni and CSK are around, as MS Dhoni played a blinder tonight against KXIP at Mohali. With a severely injured back, MS Dhoni battled on and played a brilliant innings which almost took his team home.
CSK seemed dead and buried before Dhoni started teeing off on the bowlers. While he could not run at full pace, Dhoni started smashing sixes at will, as he took his beloved CSK side to within touching distance of KXIP’s score.
But eventually it was too much for even Dhoni, as the greatest finisher in history could not pull it off tonight. Dhoni’s bad back incapacitated him, as Mahi could barely move.
Here are the best Twitter reactions!

Dhoni’s knock was a wonderful reminder of what he can do if he bats higher up the order….most bowlers still don’t know where to bowl to him in the death overs. You see fear in their eyes… #Mahi #KXIPvCSK #IPL

Dhoni with a bad back almost pulled off the impossible. People keep writing him off but this man keeps raising the bar higher and higher. @ChennaiIPL and the fans can be super proud of his effort #KXIPvCSK

That was quite a show by MS Dhoni. Love watching his interviews, loved when he mentioned God has given him enough power he doesn’t need to use his back to hit sixes(referring to injury). Kings 11 will be delighted with this win #KXIPvCSK

Congratulations to the boys. Good to win this. Excellent knock from Dhoni ,kept everybody on the edge of their seats. But Chris Gayle ,the Universe Boss was magnificent. Our spinners did well to contain in the middle overs. #KXIPvCSK
