IPL 2019: MS Dhoni hit two consecutive sixes of Lasith Malinga in the 19th over of the match against Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1. Dhoni was itching to get going and he chose Malinga to get after, two overpitched balls that missed the blockhole were deposited in the stands. The first six was 92 meters, whereas the second one was 86-meter-long. Once Dhoni hit the consecutive sixes, Ziva, who was in the stands with Sakshi Dhoni was cheering for her daddy. Dhoni scored 37* off 29 balls which took CSK to 132. At a certain stage, they were looking to get way below that.
Here is the adorable reaction of Ziva in this video:
More importantly, Dhoni stitched a crucial 66-run-stand with Rayudu who remained unbeaten on 42 off 37 balls. Malina picked up a wicket and conceded 26 runs from his three overs. Rahul Chahar was the pick of the Mumbai bowlers, he scalped a couple of wickets for 14 runs in his allotted four overs. Chasing 132 to win, Mumbai had a stutter at the start as they lost Rohit Sharma for four runs.
At the time of filing the copy, Mumbai was 101/4 in the 14th over. Tahir had just picked up Surya Kumar and Krunal Pandya of consecutive deliveries. Is there a twist in the match and will Tahir run through Mumbai to take Chennai single-handedly to the finals?
