MS Dhoni is one of the finest limited-overs cricketers who has stepped on the planet earth. He has immense reputation and he proved it again. Chasing 206 in Match 24 of the ongoing VIVO IPL 2018, Dhoni’s belligerence guided Chennai Super Kings (CSK) home with 2 balls to spare. Dhoni blasted 7 sixes in his 34-ball 70* against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
