It is always a sad sight for home fans to see a key batter from their side walking back to the pavilion, but there are some cricketing greats that make the situation an exception. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) opener, Devon Conway was the witness to such an incident when the Chepauk crowd started celebrating his wicket for MS Dhoni’s arrival.

While locking horns with Rajasthan Royals (RR), CSK was reeling at 122/6 at the 17-over mark. The team required 54 runs from the last 18 balls with Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni at the crease. The visitors were bowling in tight areas and so they had reduced the opposition to 113/6 at one point in time.

The hosts were in some trouble but still, the Chepauk crowd celebrated Devon Conway’s dismissal and the reason was none other than MS Dhoni. Devon Conway was dismissed on the last ball of the 15th over and the situation became very difficult for CSK as the required run rate was above 12. The New Zealand batter walking to the pavilion was a sad sight for the home crowd but the spectators in Chepauk erupted in joy.

Here is the video of the incident:
