MS Dhoni returned to skipper Chennai Super Kings, and the squad won again on Sunday, defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 13 runs at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. However, Dhoni was more animated than ever in the IPL 2022 game and was irate at one point with rookie bowler Mukesh Choudhary, who produced a wide ball in the penultimate over of SRH’s chase.

Mukesh angled it down towards the leg side to Nicholas Pooran on the third ball of the final over of the game and regrettably delivered a wide delivery.

Dhoni was seen screaming at the bowler, pointing to the fielders on the off-side, perhaps signalling that he should have gone wide of the stump.

“MS Dhoni didn’t tell me anything special about that over, he just told me to bowl stump to stump and not try anything fancy,” Mukesh stated after the game, referring to his conversation with the skipper before the last over.

The youth did play a significant part in CSK’s 13-run victory, picking up four wickets for 46 runs despite being hammered for 24 runs in the penultimate over.

Dhoni, on the other hand, had some words of wisdom for the youngster and all T20 bowlers.

“I always told my bowlers, you may get hit for 4 sixes in an over, but the 2 balls that you save – ultimately in a high-scoring game – those are the 2 deliveries that will help you win the game. Because a lot of bowlers, after getting 3-4 sixes, they will be like let’s get done with it but that one boundary or even instead of sixes if you get hit for 2 fours that will help you in a game. I don’t know if they believe in that theory, but it really works,” he stated after the game.
