Video: Thrilling finish by MS Dhoni in final over against Kings XI Punjab at Visakhapatnam

Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) captain MS Dhoni helped his team in securing a thrilling victory against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at Visakhapatnam in the final over of the match. This was the last game of the tournament for both the teams and both the sides were at the bottom and win would have helped him not to finish at the bottom of the points table.

Chasing a good total of 173, RPS didn’t have an expected start as half of the side was back to pavilion at the score of 86. But it was skipper Dhoni who once again proved the cricket world why he is still the best finisher when it comes to chasing. In the final over, RPS needed 23 and left arm spinner Axar Patel was the bowler. The over started with a dot ball. The very next ball was wide, which surely showed that Axar was nervous while bowling to arguably world’s best finisher. Third delivery went for a six, followed by a dot where Dhoni would have taken a run but once again decided not to go for it. Now, 14 needed from last three and Dhoni launches a boundary on a short and wide delivery, followed by two back to back sixes, which ensured RPS’ victory in their last game of the tournament.

Truly, that was an epic finish by Dhoni and Murali Vijay led KXIP languished to the bottom of the table. Watch and enjoy how Dhoni finishes off the match in his team’s favour in his typical style. Watch the video here.
