Chennai Super Kings (CSK) wicket-keeper MS Dhoni once again showcased his smart cricketing brain and awareness, running out Punjab Kings (PBKS) batter, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, during their game on Sunday.
Rajapaksa had just joined Shikhar Dhawan after the skipper, Mayank Agarwal, was dismissed off the second ball of the innings. He had just smashed a six off Chris Jordan and was looking to rotate strike.
However, Dhawan wasn’t ready for the call. He turned down the run but Rajapaksa was well down the crease. Jordan picked up the ball and threw it at the striker’s end.
Although he missed, Dhoni ran in from his wicket-keeping position, gathered the ball, and underarmed a throw, catching Rajapaksa well short of the crease. Rajapaksa had also given up and could have made his ground if he kept running.
Meanwhile, Jordan was the only change made by CSK for the match. As for PBKR, they brought in Vaibhav Arora and Jitesh Sharma, and the latter will likely be their wicket-keeper for the game.
PBKS playing XI:
Mayank Agarwal(capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, M Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma, Odean Smith, Arshdeep Singh, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Vaibhav Arora
CSK playing XI:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja(capt), MS Dhoni(wk), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Dwaine Pretorius, Mukesh Choudhary.
