Dhoni gave a poetic ending to the IPL 2021 by leading CSK’s ‘Dad’s Army’ to victory. By defeating Kolkata Knight Riders by 27 runs in the final, the ‘Dad’s Army’ outwitted everyone with their oodles of experience.
HitMan’s bolting rise as the open only started when in 2013 he was selected as an opener in the ICC Champions Trophy. Since he had never played this role before, a lot of speculations were made about Dhoni’s this decision.
While chasing the 275 target India seemed to be in trouble as they had lost already three wickets at about 111 runs. Considering the fact that knew how to play Murlidharan Dhoni promoted himself up the batting order and came to bat in place of the in-form Yuvraj Singh. Dhoni scored a match-winning knock of 91.
