Rajasthan Royals defeated Delhi Capitals by a 57-run margin while Chennai Super Kings made light work of Mumbai Indians at Wankhede before returning to their fortress MA Chidambaram Stadium. The match had a festive atmosphere as the crowd’s favourite MS Dhoni was all set to play his 200th IPL match.
The iconic Indian cricketer was also felicitated before the match began and automatically raised everyone’s expectations for a Dhoni show. The packed-Chepauk crowd didn’t go home with seeing him pyrotechnics as the batter, once regarded as the best finisher, scored an 18-ball 35 in his attempt to score 21 runs in the last over.
The veteran eventually couldn’t take his side across the line as Sandeep Sharma, who went unsold at the IPL 2023 auction before being signed as a replacement for Prasidh Krishna, bowled three accurate yorkers in the final over under tremendous pressure to clinch the two points for RR.
