cleans up MSD!
yorker from Stokes and Dhoni is gone. His stumps are rattled and CSK’s hopes
are dented. Santner has to get a boundary to keep his side in the hunt.
this IPL just isn’t short on controversies. Stokes bowls a full toss in the
final over with three balls left in the chase and the umpire gives it a no-ball
for height. But the square leg umpire says it isn’t a no ball. So the decision
is overturned and Dhoni is absolutely furious. He has infact entered the field
here and is seen shouting at the umpire. Wow, I’m not sure if he is supposed to
enter the field like that. Eventually, the no ball isn’t given and CSK need six
from the final two balls.
might have bowled a top notch yorker to get rid of Dhoni but he has also bowled
a no-ball and a wide in this final over and needing three from the final ball,
Santner sends one over his head to seal a thrilling win for CSK. Wow, what a
game! What drama!
Man of the match: MS dhoni for his knock of 58.
