“It was a great match,” Preity tweeted. His mind was with young Delhi. But they were out of luck. This night is for CSK. According to Preity Zinta, finisher Dhoni has inspired his teammates to lead from the front. Preity had come to Dubai to promote the Punjab Kings. However, the team was already eliminated from the tournament.
CSK fans in the gallery were thrilled to see Dhoni’s explosive performance. Children and adults alike were thrilled with Dhoni’s performance in the last two overs. Many could be seen in tears after winning the match. Dhoni threw the ball with his hand to the two children in the crowd.
Dhoni and his team won the match by four wickets. Rituraj Gaekwad (70), Robin Uthappa (62) and MS Dhoni (18) excelled in batting while Moin Ali, Ravindra Jadeja and Josh Hazlewood also excelled in bowling. CSK, who were knocked out of the playoffs last season due to poor performance, are set to become the first team to reach the final this time around.
Dhoni is a real finisher; Chennai in the final
