Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) clashed with David Warner’s Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 55th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at Chepauk on May 10. In the standings, CSK sits in second place, while DC has made a strong recovery after losing their first five consecutive games in the initial stage of the tournament.

MS Dhoni decided to field first after CSK won the toss and the skipper also revealed that Ambati Rayudu has been included in the starting XI. Also, spinner Lalit Yadav had been added to DC’s starting eleven, according to David Warner. Ruturaj Gaikwad (24), Devon Conway (10), and Ajinkya Rahane (21) got starts but couldn’t score big runs.

Ambati Rayudu (23) and Shivam Dube (25) provided some impetus to the innings in the middled, but they failed to do much and fell soon after. CSK was struggling as they only had 139 runs by the 18th over, but then MS Dhoni jumped into action. 

Khaleel Ahmed stepped up to bowl the 19th over and after a couple of good deliveries which went for singles, he was taken to the cleaners by MS Dhoni, who has done this quite often in the ongoing IPL 2023. First was a six was a pull over mid-wicket on a slower ball, which was followed by a four, which came courtesy of a thick edge over short third man.

On the last ball of the over, MS Dhoni clobbered Khaleel’s wide, full ball straight over his head for a six. In the last over of the innings, Mitchell Marsh got the wicket of both Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja to restrict the hosts to a score of 167/8.

After the first six, the camera panned towards Sakshi and Ziva Dhoni in the stands, and they were seen clapping and hi-fiving one another.
