If anybody has been wondering why MS Dhoni is considered one of international cricket's superstars, if anybody has been wondering why MS Dhoni is beloved by so many cricket fans in India and around the world, if anybody is wondering that, then they need only look at Wednesday's game and all will become very clear.
The captain of the Chennai Super Kings stepped up in a very big way just when his team needed him. His innings of 51 not out off of just 20 balls almost certainly guaranteed victory for the Super Kings and deservedly earned him the man of the match award.
He came to the crease with the score at 95 for 3 and saw his partner and well set batsman Mike Hussey fairly promptly dismissed. However, Dhoni (well known for his incredible composure) did not panic and battered his team through to an impressive score. His running between the wickets with Dwayne Bravo was of the highest class and that pair of batsman insured that the Super Kings put together a dominant performance.
Dhoni then kept his team in it in the field and rotated his bowlers well. He took three catches by the way. What a performance by a fantastic player in another great Indian Premier League game!
wondering if Chennai will get a hat trick of titles this season. Given that there remaining two match are in front of their home crowd
