A Dhoni masterclass saw Chennai Super Kings pull off another last-over thriller on Wednesday night, chasing down Royal Challengers Bangalore’s target of 206 with two balls to spare.
The CSK skipper walked in to bat at 74/4, with the required run-rate was around 12. So far in the innings, only Ambati Rayudu had managed to occupy the crease. However, the duo added 101 runs for the fifth wicket, edging CSK closer to the target. Rayudu’s run out brought RCB back into the game but Dwayne Bravo hits in the final over and Dhoni’s massive six over long on sealed the game for the former champions.
Here are some of the reactions at the conclusion of a thrilling contest:

Those of us who thought Dhoni couldn't win T20 matches anymore, should stand delightfully corrected
