CSK vs MI: Dhoni runs wide .. Bowler killed in Strike Vemperlat

Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was indirectly responsible for the Chennai defeat on Thursday night. Dhoni, who was at the crease till the end of the match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, failed to finish the match. Dhoni, who has been seen coordinating the lower order and finishing matches for the last four years, also lost the match in Wankhede due to pressure in the strike frenzy.

Chennai won the toss and elected to bat first. But .. that was not enough. Chennai team scored 97 runs in 16 overs. Mumbai chased down the target with 103/5 in 14.5 overs. In fact, Dhoni was at the crease unbeaten till the end .. Did he coordinate the lower order and score 120-130 runs? The result of the match would have been different!

Dhoni, who bowled the first five balls of the 16th over of the innings, scored 10 off one four and six sixes. However, Dhoni hopes to bat himself in the next over by taking a single off the last ball. By then Chennai was 97/9. But .. Dhoni did not hit the last ball thrown by Meradith. Dhoni did not even try to hit the ball, which came in the form of a leg side bouncer. But .. Mumbai keeper Ishant Kishan received the ball and threw it over the wickets and Mukesh Chaudhary came back as the last wicket in the form of a runout. What if Dhoni actually stays at the crease as well? Match commentators said the ball was delivered by the umpire wide.
