India T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur did an MS Dhoni, she finished the game by hitting a six. Lancashire Thunder’s won the game but not before some trouble. Needing 11 off 6 balls, they lost the wicket of Eleanor Threlkeld. Harmanpreet took off for a quick single of the first ball of the over, but her partner could not make it back on time. Needing 10 off 5 balls, the India T20I captain played out a dot ball before hitting a four and then following it up with a six to seal the victory for her side when the equation was 4 runs needed off 2 balls. The winning six had shades of MS Dhoni’s six that helped India lift the 2011 CWC.

Harmanpreet Kaur hit the off-spinner clean towards mid-wicket to get the ball over the ropes. It found the middle of the bat as she was hoping for. The bowler was coming around the wicket. That six will be etched in her memories and for fans, they got to see the female version of MS Dhoni, the finisher. Dhoni is arguably the best finisher ever in limited overs cricket and even at the age of 37, remains an indispensable figure in the Indian ODI setup.
