Dhoni. Six. Rinse. Repeat

Dhoni as expressionless as a man waking up in the morning and walking to brush his teeth. The players on the square in awe wondering if he is for real. Crowd delirious, hoping he doesn't retire any time soon. Two deliveries ago, captain Williamson had put his arm around the bowler Kaul and extracted a dout of him. Dhoni burrowed deep into the crease as Kaul bowled a tad short of length, aiming for that midwicket area the previous ball for no runs. Taking it to the wire, like always, he would smack a 6 over the very same midwicket. Like always. It's been 10 years since the Wankhede six, and the nervousness around these situations doesn't go away. Dhoni's 6 summoned at will, isn't going away either.

CSK win

Kaul in to bowl. Can they bowl themselves out? Just 1 off the first 3 balls. And MSD finishes with a 6. And he has done it again. Just like that night in 2011. CSK win by 6 wickets.

22:57 (IST)30 Sep 2021
CSK almost home

Rayudu in on the act as he hits a 6. Pressure reliever that. And Bhuvi bowls a wide. Did not need that right now. Dhoni hits a four off the fourth ball. 13 off the over. CSK 132/4 after 19 overs. Need 3 off ther last.

Not a great audition for Rashid

Rashid Khan doesn’t have that great a record against Chennai Super Kings and he was under pressure when he came on to bowl the sixth over of the chase. Ruturaj Gaikwad went for a sweep first ball and got a top edged boundary. Next ball, he thundered down the track to heave a six. Rashid went for his favourite googly from back of length next ball, beat Gaikwad’s sweep and trapped him lbw as the ball struck the stomach region in front of the stumps. A victorious grin spread across Khan’s visage but had to wipe it off as Gaikwad got DRS to review the decision. In his next over, he would have another chance when Gaikwad hammered a tossed up delivery back at him. More hurt was in store though, metaphorically and literally as the ball rammed into his knees and squirted away. He would have to wait until the 15th over to have some luck. Moeen Ali had failed to connect with a pull and the ball rolled off his thighs on to the stumps. Some joy, at last for the man who has gone on record that he dreams to play under the captaincy of CSK captain Dhoni.

Stifling over

Kaul comes in the attack. This is going deep. Rayudu hits a 4 off the fifth ball. And the over ends at 6 runs. Good over. CSK 119/4 after 18 overs.

22:46 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Great over

Bhuvi in to ball. Great over. Just 4 off it.  CSK 113/4 after 17 overs.

And Holder gets another. CSK lose 2 quick ones. du Plessis departs. Kaul takes it. CSK 108/4 

22:37 (IST)30 Sep 2021

Holder in the attack. Raina is gone. LBW. Holder strikes. Very very full. CSK 107/3 after 15.3 overs.

22:32 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Rashid strikes

After 3 dots, Moeen is gone. Rashid strikes. CSK 103/2 after 14.4 overs.

22:23 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Faf du Narcissi?

Faf du Plessis is not the most expressive of batters around. Six, four, bowled, he usually ingests with equanimity, or at best a quick chuckle. But after gliding down the track, as if the deck were a disco floor, lofting Bhuvneshwar Kumar straight over his head, he stood in self-awe in his follow-through, salivating the ball’s furious flight, it’s brisk belly-dive into the pitch near the ropes, burning the dew to hit the advertisement hoarding and rebound back to the perimeter rope. Faf was in a murderous mood and had picked a couple of sixes. But it’s this stroke (not that it was the most difficult one, but batsmen do get pleasure from hitting a big, tall fast bowler straight over his head) that stoked the inner Narcissus in him. It also brought a wider than usual smile, a genuine sense of satisfaction. And why not?

22:21 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Moeen in on the act

After 3 dots, Rashid gets hit for a 4 in the 4th ball by Moeen. Just 6 off the over though. CSK 97/1 after 13 overs.

22:08 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Rituraj gone

Wicket gone. Rituraj is gone. This is why Holder was brought in. That's the first wicket at the half-way stage. CSK 75/0 after 10.1 overs.

22:07 (IST)30 Sep 2021
10 gone

Ruturaj is in destructive mode. Hits a 4 off the first ball. 7 runs off the over though. CSK moving along nicely. CSK 75/0 after 10 overs.

22:04 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Another 4

Gaikwad is hitting them. A four off Rashid. 8 off the over. 68/0 after 9 overs.

21:57 (IST)30 Sep 2021
50 up

50 comes up in style for CSK as du Plessis hits a massive six. And the over ends with a four. Expensive over. CSK 58/0 after 7 overs.

21:51 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Powerplay ends

Powerplay ends. Rashid concedes 11 off the over. CSK 47/0 after 6 overs.

21:49 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Gaikwad survives

And Rashid shows his experience! Gaikwad looks to sweep this full ball. The googly turns in from off, goes below the glove, and hits the back leg. Looks plumb but Gaikwad reviews after the umpire raises his finger. However, the ball is touching the glove so umpire Menon has to change his decision. Gaikwad survives!

21:48 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Runs are tumbling

Runs keep on coming. This time off Rashid's first ball. And a 6 to follow. Stepping down the pitch and just clobbers one. CSK 46/0 after 3.2 ovs.

21:45 (IST)30 Sep 2021
du Plessis hits 2 fours off Holder

du Plessis hits a 4 off holder. Class shot. Another one off the 5th ball. It's over the bowler's head. CSK 36/0 after 5 overs.

21:42 (IST)30 Sep 2021
Another sixxxxxxxx

And another. du Plessis' turn now. Absolutely smashed it. CSK 27/0 after 4 overs.
