Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT) are currently facing off in the final match of the IPL 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The toss was won by CSK skipper MS Dhoni, who chose to field first. A key moment in the game occurred when GT’s opener, Shubman Gill, showcased his impressive form at the crease, only to be dismissed by Dhoni’s exceptional wicketkeeping skills.
In the seventh over of GT’s innings, Gill attempted to drive a delivery from left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja. However, the ball spun sharply, evading the edge of his bat. During this movement, Gill’s back foot inadvertently left the crease, and with lightning-fast reflexes, Dhoni executed a brilliant stumping, sending the in-form batter back to the dugout in just 0.1 seconds.
Gill’s innings came to an end at 39 runs off 20 balls, marking a significant achievement in the process. He surpassed Jos Buttler’s tally of 863 runs in 17 matches during the 2022 season, becoming the second-highest run-getter in a single season. Gill concluded his impressive season with a remarkable total of 890 runs in 17 matches.
Meanwhile, Dhoni’s exceptional performance behind the stumps received widespread acclaim from the cricket fraternity on Twitter. The 41-year-old wicketkeeper was praised for his extraordinary skills, highlighting his contribution to CSK’s success in the IPL.
Here’s how cricket world reacted to Dhoni’s brilliance:
