Chennai Super Kings’ batting coach, Michael Hussey, made a bold prediction involving MS Dhoni ahead of the match against the Delhi Capitals. MS Dhoni fulfilled Michael Hussey’s forecast by hitting a remarkable six against Anrich Nortje on the last ball of the game.

The Chennai Super Kings kicked off their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 campaign with consecutive wins at home. However, Dhoni didn’t have an opportunity to bat in the initial two matches as other batters steered the team to victory without relying on him.

However, the wicketkeeper-batsman had to step up to the crease during the third match in Visakhapatnam on Sunday, March 31. Dhoni played a quickfire knock of 37 runs off 16 deliveries. However, it wasn’t enough, as the CSK team suffered a 20-run loss.

MS Dhoni Will Hit Six To Finish The Match – Michael Hussey

In a video posted on IPL’s social media platform, Michael Hussey confidently predicted that MS Dhoni would conclude the match with a last-ball six amidst an enthusiastic crowd.

“My prediction for the last over of the match is that MS Dhoni will be batting. The crowd will be roaring and MSD will hit a six to finish the match,” Hussey said.

Dhoni came to the crease at No. 8 when the Chennai team needed 72 runs off 23 deliveries. The right-handed batsman smashed boundaries off his first ball, showcasing his vintage touch. He scored 20 runs off the last over of the match against Anrich Nortje.

In the final over, Dhoni scored two boundaries and two sixes. He concluded the match with a six, scoring a remarkable 20 runs in Nortje’s over. Dhoni’s explosive batting narrowed the defeat margin to 20 runs, with CSK concluding their innings at a total of 171/6.

This Is Exactly What You Want From MS Dhoni – Shane Watson

Former CSK all-rounder Shane Watson expressed astonishment at MS Dhoni’s performance, highlighting the exceptional shots played during his innings. Watson commended Dhoni’s skill, noting that some of the shots played were among the best he had ever seen.

“With MS Dhoni in this type of form – this is exactly what you want from him. His power and the skill he has got under pressure when the bowlers are really scrambling to execute, his ability to win a game out of nowhere we have seen so many times through his career. Some of his shots he played tonight, that’s as good a shot I have ever seen him play. The one over cover is one of the harder shots to play, but he is still doing it,” the former Australia all-rounder told Jio Cinema.

MS Dhoni will be next seen in action during their upcoming match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Friday, April 5.
