The bowlers of CSK gave a brilliant performance and bowled the KKR batting line-up for 167 runs. Rahul Tripathi was the only batsmen to get going as the rest fell around him in quick successions. Karn Sharma and Dwayne Bravo turned out to be a nightmare for the KKR batsmen taking two and three wickets respectively.

However, it was the performance of MS Dhoni behind the stumps that stood-out. He sent 5 batsmen back to the pavilion by taking 5 catches and a run-out.

The 39-year-old, Dhoni continues to as he pulled off a magnificent catch behind the stumps. It happened on the penultimate delivery of the innings when DJ Bravo bowled a fullish one outside off to Shivam Mavi and the ball got a thick outside off Mavi’s swing and flew towards Dhoni’s right.

MS Dhoni, who had only one-glove on at that time tried to leap to his light and pluck the catch but he ended up lobbing it with his hand, which was without the glove. However, the legendary keeper strode further and leaped to complete the stunning catch and proved why is considered as a legend of wicket-keeping.

With that stunning catch, MS Dhoni also made a new record as he surpassed Dinesh Karthik to take the most catches as a keeper.

Meanwhile, social media was already flooded with amazing reactions from Twitterati over the brilliant catch taken by the ‘superman’Β Dhoni.
