MS Dhoni has set the IPL on fire this time round, tonking the bowlers away for sixes at will and accelerating right from the word go.
Dhoni off late has been circumspect in the initial few overs, taking his time in the middle and only teeing off when the game goes very deep.
However, in this IPL, Dhoni has teed off immediately after coming into bat, something that has provided the Chennai side with some much needed impetus in the middle order.
While Dhoni did get going against RCB, winning the game for CSK, he did it largely against a week bowling unit.
But today, he was up against a good bowling unit, one that had Trent Boult in it, but Dhoni looked in prime form even today, taking Boult to the cleaners in the 17th over and then ending the innings beautifully in the final over to help CSK get over that 205 mark.
Twitter again went crazy for Dhoni, pouring in the admiration, and Sehwag too jumped in on the bandwagon to come up with a special tweet.
“Wonderful hitting from Mahi and Watson. Only way Delhi can get anywhere close is if Munro or Maxwell mein Mata aa jaayein.” Viru’s tweet read.

DD tried hard, with Pant playing an innings of the highest quality but none of the other batsmen stuck around with him.
