One of the biggest cricket matches of the year happened last night at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, where the Mumbai Indians locked horns with the Chennai Super Kings. A special finish from former CSK captain MS Dhoni helped the Super Kings beat MI on the last ball, and after the performance from Dhoni, his former teammates Suresh Raina posted two special tweets for him.
Speaking about the IPL match between the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings first, the Chennai-based franchise won the toss and decided to have a bowl first. A dream spell from Mukesh Choudhary gave the Chennai Super Kings an upper hand in their match against the Mumbai Indians.
A fighting 51-run knock form youngster Tilak Verma ensured that the Mumbai Indians finished with a score of 155 runs in their 20 overs. Chasing 156, CSK lost wickets at regular intervals as well. But Dhoni scored 16 runs off the last four balls bowled by Jaydev Unadkat to guide the Chennai Super Kings home. Reacting to the performance from Dhoni in the last over, Raina wrote:
“The most awaited match of the tournament #CSKvMI. A much needed innings by our very own @msdhoni bhai at the end, always a delight to watch! Congratulations to the whole #CSK team on another massive win,” Raina’s tweet read. Before that he tweeted: “Well played MS Dhoni skipper.”
Well played @msdhoni skipper 😂🙌

MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina played together for CSK for many years
Many members of the cricket universe would know that MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina shared the leadership responsibilities of the Chennai Super Kings team for many years. Whenever Dhoni was unavailable, Raina would lead the Chennai-based franchise.
Now Dhoni is playing under the captaincy of Ravindra Jadeja. Since Dhoni does not have the captaincy burden now, it seems he is back at playing his natural game in IPL 2022.
