Notably, one such instance was during a match against Delhi Capitals, where Dhoni’s explosive innings of 37 runs off 16 balls was a highlight in a losing effort. Throughout this IPL season, Dhoni’s appearances have been predominantly lower down the batting order, with his highest placement being at No. 5 during a recent home game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

“Everyone’s been waiting for MS Dhoni to come out earlier and spend more time batting. But, you know, it’s just incredible to watch.
