IPL 2018 : India’s best player MS Dhoni, Dhoni finished the match with a six off the last ball
Capt. Cool MS Dhoni once again scored a six in his famous form. Against Sri Lanka in the final of the ICC World Cup 2011, Dhoni made India a World Cup champion after 28 years. But winning this format in the IPL has become the key to Dhoni. In the eleven year history of IPL, Dhoni performed this charisma for the fourth time.
For the first time, Dhoni did this in the year 2008 with the IPL debut. In the first season, he gave victory to his team by converting a winning six off Murali Kartik against Kolkata Knight Riders. Two years later, in the year 2010, against Kings XI Punjab in Dharamsala, he gave the victory to Irfan Pathan for a six to give victory to Chennai.
After this, Dhoni could not do this for six years. Dhoni has done this feat for the third time against Kings XI Punjab in 2016. But this time he was playing for Pune Super Giants instead of Chennai.
He targeted Punjab’s bowler Akshar Patel in Visakhapatnam and gave his team a chance to win the ball with a six. Two years later, Dhoni has done this in the IPL. This time their target has become an overseas bowler. Dhoni winger six on Corey Anderson’s bowling against RCB

But once again using his cold mind, Dhoni pushed forward with Rayudu. In the 14th over, Dhoni and Raidu put on three octave sixes on the pads of Pawan Negi. After this, the run-out of both the batsmen did not stop till the end. Both batsmen scored brilliantly and at the end of 16 overs, the score brought the score to 151 for 4 wickets.
