IPL 2019, CSK V/S RR: Dhoni’s Glorious Innings, Cricket Legend Gave The Salute

Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) played an excellent inning of 75 not out in 46 balls against Rajasthan Royals bowling at the difficult pitch of Chepauk. Thanks to this innings of Dhoni, in the IPL match (IPL 2019), Chennai Super Kings defeated Rajasthan Royals by eight runs and won the third consecutive win.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni once again played the role of a troubleshooter and brought the team to 175 for five wickets. In reply, the Royals’ team could only score 167 runs in eight wickets, and it was their third consecutive defeat.

Here was a turning pitch in the last match, but in this match, it proved to be a different challenge for the batsman. In the beginning, this helped the fast bowlers

Dhoni’s spectacular inning:-

Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 28 runs in the last over of Jaydev Unadkat, which was the third most expensive over of the history of the IPL. Chennai scored 60 runs in the last three overs. Dhoni hit four fours and four sixes in his innings and all sixes in the last over of Unadkat. Earlier, Suresh Raina (36) and Dhoni shared 61 runs for the fourth wicket. Dhoni also added 56 runs with West Indies Dwayne Bravo.

There was a lot of reactions from the Cricket world on the glorious innings of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Cricket legends gave Dhoni a salute in his own style.

Match reversed after first inning’s 10th over

Let’s say that the trio of fast bowlers of Rajasthan Royals, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, and Ben Stokes have disciplined bowling. They dismissed Chennai’s top three batsmen with just 29 runs in the Powerplay. After this, Dhoni and Raina came to the crease. Both of them kept moving ahead with good runs.

Chennai’s score was just 55 runs in 10 overs and seven were hit. After that Suresh Raina and Mahendra Singh Dhoni opened their hands and pulled the team out of the crisis.

Imran Tahir, Purple Cap Holder: I am feeling great, I am very proud. There was dew in the ground; I tried to use my experience but the ball was really wet. I am very happy this is always the nerves. In the First match, I dropped a catch, so I did not want to repeat the mistake. Every catch is a difficult one. This is my passion and respect for the game. I do not want to take anything. Whenever I am playing, I try to contribute to my team.


First four then six, what a hit and what a shot to finish. Rashid Khan played well and help to win SRH with an over to spare.  And they got the 4th position with 2 points. David Warner, playing a brilliant inning of 69 runs, made a consistent half-century for Orange Cap, saying that it would be with me as Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Rajasthan Royals by five wickets at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Friday.

With this, the host team registered their first win in IPL 2019, while the visitor team suffered a second defeat because they lost their first match against Kings XI Punjab by 14 runs. Rashid Khan hit the winning six and Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to get the target of 199 with an over to spare.

First Century of IPL 2019

Earlier, for Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson scored an unbeaten 102, while Captain Ajinkya Rahane hit an important 70 runs, as the visitors scored 198/2 in their allotted 20 overs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Samson, who became the first batsman to score a century in the Indian Premier League in 2019, played an unbeaten inning of 102 runs in 55 balls, including 10 fours and four sixes. It was Samson’s second IPL century since he made his first century in 2017.

After the first wicket, Rahane scored 70 off 49 balls and added hundred for a team with Samson for the second wicket. After playing a short partnership with Jos Buttler, the pair created the basic score for a defendable target. Ben Stokes played some stylish shots and hit three boundaries for 16 runs.

Bad for Rajasthan:-

Sanju Samson made his second IPL century, but it got useless due to the splendid partnership between David Warner and Johnny Bairstow, and Vijay Shankar and Rashid Khan scored magnificent boundaries for the hosts.

Good catch from Kulkarni

Dhawal Kulkarni got himself back after dropping the Bairstow catch in the 10th over as he got a great catch on the long-off. When Bairstow was dismissed by Shreyas Gopal in the next over, then much credit of that wicket should go to the glorious catches of Dhawal Kulkarni.

The catch was something like this:- He was close to the boundary, had to jump to grab the ball, found the time right and remained in the grip and remained inside the rope.

Rashid Khan (Man of the Match with 1 wicket /24 runs and 15 runs off 8 balls):

I think that I just do my best to stay positive in every game and I am working hard and believe in my skills, so this is working for me. The plan was to bowl Butler in a good length area, I have dismissed him a few times, so I came early. I was getting my own variations. I didn’t want to give room to batsmen because the ball wasn’t turning much.

I have five different leg-spin variants with different actions. I return myself with my variations and pitch it in the area of good length. I am working on my batting. When my team needs me, then I have to bat well. My coach – Moody, Murali, and Laxman have always supported me and have given me so much confidence that you can hit anywhere, it’s just a matter of supporting myself. That’s what I did.
