IPL 2017: From Virat Kohli to Shahid Kapoor, everyone bowed to MS Dhoni's rejuvenated finishing act!

Amid bag full of criticism, here comes a tight slap on the face of haters by Mahendra Singh Dhoni through his marvellous 61 off 34

To all the MS Dhoni haters in the house, the time has come for you people to regret what you ever said about the former Indian skipper. Though you judged him according to the present circumstances but always keep this thing in mind that ‘class can never be left behind’. And what Mahendra Singh Dhoni did today in the game number 23 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 10 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, he expressed it loud and clear why he is known as the best finisher in the entire universe.

It’s true that right from the beginning of IPL 10, the Dhoni fans were deprived of his monstrous knock. Match after match, the curiosity was growing that when Mahi will play a big knock? When they would be able to see his fishing move, either a six or a four, which will land their team on the winning side. Amid bag full of criticism, here comes a tight slap on the face of haters by Dhoni through his marvellous 61 off 34. Not only he played his first fifty-plus knock in the IPL 10 but also, as Ravi Shastri said once, Dhoni finished the game in style. Thou he didn’t hit a six but a four and that too at the situation when 2 runs were needed off one ball to win the game.

When the Rising Pune Supergiant were reduced to 87/2, while chasing a target of 177, the all time favourite wicketkeeper-batsman stepped into the field and the Pune crowd started chanting ‘Dhoni-Dhoni’.

As usual, he took his time get settled and then he began charging the bowlers brutally. He played till the end and forced his critics to realise that, “Dude, the boss is back!”

After hitting 3 magnificent sixes and 6 fours, Dhoni ended up scoring 61 runs and took his team to the victory against the defending champions of the IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad. After his massive knock, it was obvious that nobody else could be the Man of the Match.

Meanwhile, how the Twitterati reacted to this blockbuster performance is worth giving a look.
