His willow was silent since many days, but on Sunday Mahendra Singh Dhoni showed his brute power when he hit, possibly, the biggest six of the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League.

The crowd erupted in joy in the 14th over when Rising Pune Supergiant's Dhoni danced down the track and dispatched Royal Challengers Bangalore leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal on the roof of the M Chinnaswamy stadium.

After a string of poor performances, Dhoni went on to make 28 off 25 balls. He smashed three boundaries and a six in his innings. He had scores of 12 not out, 5 and 11 in the previous three matches in the tournament.


RPS ended their three-match losing run as they defeated RCB by 27 runs.

Asked to bat, Pune suffered a late batting collapse but managed to post a competitive total of 161 for eight in 20 overs. In reply, RCB put up an below-par show, being restricted to 134/9, as they suffered their hat-trick of losses.
