MS Dhoni, once again, was at his destructive best in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2018). Dhoni, who was under pressure before the start of the season for his low strike rate, has been absolutely smashing the bowlers out of the park, and it would be fair to say that he has turned the clock back.

In the last couple of years, MS Dhoni struggled to close the matches for India and also for his IPL franchises. A section of fans and media have been criticising him and saying that he is no more the finisher he used to be. But, as always, the Ranchi lad has answered the critics in the most aggressive and elegant manner i.e. with his bat and right from the middle.
After playing an incredible match-winning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore, MS Dhoni played a thundering cameo against Delhi Daredevils and scored a blistering fifty off just 22 balls.
MS Dhoni looked completely calm and composed and the middle and smashed all the Delhi bowlers for massive sixes on the on-side. He was in the zone and Delhi Daredevils’ bowlers, including the experienced Trent Boult, had no answer to his power and antics.
CSK and MS Dhoni fans were over the moon after seeing his batting performance and we have embedded some of the best tweets here:
Dhoni's flat sixes would have reached another planet if earth was flat.
