Chennai Super Kings (CSK) And Gujarat Titans (GT) are currently facing each other in the final match of the 2023 IPL at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The coin toss was won by CSK skipper MS Dhoni, who chose to field first. A key moment in the game came when GT’s opener, Shubman Gillshowed his impressive form at the crease but was turned down by Dhoni’s exceptional wicket-keeping skills.
In the seventh over of GT’s innings, Gill attempted to force a pitch from left arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja. However, the ball spun sharply and avoided the edge of his bat. During this move, Gill’s back foot inadvertently left the crease, and with lightning fast reflexes, Dhoni executed a brilliant punch, sending the in-form batter back to the dugout in just 0.1 seconds.
Gill’s innings ended on 39 runs off 20 balls, a major achievement in the process. He surpassed Jos Buttler’s total of 863 runs in 17 games during the 2022 season, becoming the second-highest run-getter in a single season. Gill ended his impressive season with a remarkable total of 890 runs in 17 games.
Meanwhile, Dhoni’s exceptional performance behind the stumps received widespread acclaim from the cricket fraternity on Twitter. The 41-year-old wicketkeeper has been praised for his extraordinary skills, highlighting his contribution to CSK’s success in the IPL.
Here’s how the cricket world reacted to Dhoni’s brilliance:
Wow ! One can change notes from the bank, but behind the wickets one cannot change MS Dhoni! Nahi badal sakte .. As fast as ever MS Dhoni.
