Mahendra Singh Dhoni is having a blast with his bat.
On Wednesday, the Man with the Midas touch showed what finishing games off in style means when he hit a six off Corey Anderson to take Chennai Super Kings home in the Clash of the Titans against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Needing 16 off the final over, Dwayne Bravo started the onslaught with a four and a six, but it was the skipper who swiveled across to the off-side and launched Anderson into the long-on stands as his Chennai teammates erupted in the dug-out.
While the victory was a special one for the Chennai team, it was Dhoni and Kohli's pre-match bromance that warmed every Indian cricket fan's hearts. Some even managed to meme the special moment.
And the memes continued.
Dhoni's thrilling performance with the bat earned him praises from everyone including Virat Kohli.
“I am happy for him. Great to see him strike a few, not against us though. We wouldn’t have liked that. He’s hitting the ball really well this IPL. He is in a happy space, batting higher up and expressing himself. Seems to be enjoying it. Credit to him as well,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.
Mahi maar raha hai.
