There is no better example for the term finisher than MS Dhoni for sure! The Rising Pune Supergiants might no longer be in the contention after an underwhelming tournament, but their last game was simply breathtaking. Dhoni finished off a nearly impossible run chase in great style and on the very last ball of the game.
With 23 needed off the last over, and eventually things coming down to 12 off 2, things seemed to be all over for Pune. But Dhoni had different plans in his mind. He hit Axar Patel for two gigantic sixes to finish off the game and seal the chase.
Respected commentator and analyst Harsha Bhogle praised Dhoni on Twitter and said that Dhoni finished off the game with sheer ease without any fuss.
So 23 needed. And he does it. Just like that! #Dhoni

Post his side’s win, Dhoni was elated and termed the game as a “fantastic” game. “It was a fantastic game. This is the game we wanted to win and get into the knockouts – but that was not the case. We were never outplayed and that’s the reason our run rate is not so bad, despite losing so many games. With other players coming in, next season will be different. If you see our selection, we were worried in our bowling. When we got wickets with the new ball, spinners have done well. So picking up wickets early is important for us,” said Dhoni.
