IPL 2019: Virender Sehwag Delighted with MS Dhoni Heroics
It was a sensational knock from the blade of Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni which propelled CSK to a competitive score of 175 in their allotted 20 overs in the 12th match of Vivo IPL 12 between Chennai SSuper Kings and the Rajasthan Royals. MS Dhoni rolled back the years and remained unbeaten on 75 of 46 deliveries which included 4 fours and 4 sixes.
It was carnage on display from the former Indian skipper. He paced his innings to perfection and targeted the exact bowlers which he had in mind. He smashed Jaydev Unadkat for 3 sixes in the last 3 legitimate deliveries bowled in the over. His knock eventually proved to be the difference as Chennai posted a challenging total on the board.
Former Team India opener and once a teammate of MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag was delighted with his knock and congratulated Dhoni in his own unique style. “Not Whistle Podu, but that was Whistle Todu and Whistle Fodu from Dhoni. Very very good to see,” Sehwag wrote on his Twitter handle.

The form of MS Dhoni will not only be crucial for Chennai Super Kings through the course of the tournament but will also be of immense importance for Team India going into the 2019 World Cup. Hence the form of MS Dhoni will delight all Indian supporters.
Chennai Super Kings after batting first were out under pressure by the Rajasthan Royals bowlers as the yellow brigade lost the first 3 wickets for just 27 runs. It was good bowling from RR bowlers. Jofra Archer bowled well and proved to be the match changer for Rajasthan. The resurrection job for Chennai was done by MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo which took CSK past the 150 mark.
The last over heroics helped CSK post a competitive score on the board. Jaydev Unadkat found it very difficult to grip the wet ball as he was smashed for 4 sixes in the final over. He ended up conceding 27 runs.
