Chennai Super Kings made a strong comeback from early setbacks to post a challenging total of 176 against Lucknow Super Giants in the ongoing IPL 2024 game on Friday. Ravindra Jadeja scored his maiden fifty of the season and then MS Dhoni did 'MS Dhoni things' by finishing CSK's innings in some style.

The veteran wicketkeeper batter entered the Ekana Cricket Stadium in the 18th over when Chennai were struggling at 141/6. But, Dhoni displayed his finishing skills again by smashing 28* off just 9 balls and stole the limelight with a huge six off Yash Thakur in the last over.

Dhoni, 42, produced a mammoth six over wide long-on area on the third delivery of the last over which clocked 101m. Playing his first IPL game at Ekana Cricket Stadium, Dhoni finished the over with two fours to entertain the crowd with his vintage finishing skills. 

Meanwhile, Dhoni also completed 5,000 IPL runs as a designated wicketkeeper batter and became the first player to achieve his rare feat during his blistering knock against Lucknow. Dhoni also surpassed legendary cricketer AB de Villiers in the list of players with the most IPL runs today.

Dhoni is expected to retire at the end of the 2024 season but is showing no signs of slowing down. He has scored 87 runs in five innings at an amazing strike rate of 255.88 and has pulled off a couple of brilliant catches behind the stumps this year.

Chennai Super Kings Playing XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Mustafizur Rahman, Matheesha Pathirana.

Lucknow Super Giants Playing XI: Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Matt Henry, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur.
