MS Dhoni blasted Delhi Daredevils bowlers all-around the park in the league match in Pune on Monday. Chennai Super Kings got a good start courtesy a good partnership between Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis at the top of the order.
Shane Watson batted in his trademark style and blasted Delhi bowlers for runs all across the stadium. But, the real firepower came from MS Dhoni’s bat when he came out to bat at number 5 and started hitting sixes right from the word go.
MS Dhoni has been in outstanding form in IPL 2018 so far and has answered all his doubters and critics with his bat, and in his ‘vintage’ style. Dhoni’s biggest criticism, in the last few years, has been his average strike rate, but he has turned the clock back in IPL 2018 by smashing huge sixes and scoring runs at a strike rate well over 200.
In the match against Delhi Daredevils on Monday, Dhoni smashed many sixes but there was one which he hit off Avesh Khan for 108 metres, stood out.
Avesh Khan, who is a very fine fast bowler, bowled well in the first three overs couldn’t stop Dhoni in his last over of the match.
