There is a massive sword hanging over the IPL 2020 at the moment. While there are still a few talks doing the rounds hinting towards a shortened version of the cash-rich league around October, the world needs to certainly get normal before that.
Meanwhile, all those attached to the game are trying to churn out old and evergreen content to keep you entertained, we happened to come across an interesting video from the IPL 2019. Mahendra Singh Dhoni was batting at 48 * and was smoking it to all parts of the ground while CSK had set a date with the Delhi Capitals. MSD tried to heave one out of the ground on the 5th delivery of the 19th over while Trent Boult was steaming in.
It was one of those rare occasions when Dhoni missed out and while Rishabh Pant fumbled a bit, Ambati Rayudu rightly believed it to be the perfect occasion to steal a quick single. Having said that, the wicket-keeper batsman who is also the Brigadier of the ‘Yellow Army’ was in no mood to get off-strike as he believed that he was the right man to finish the job like he so often did in the past.
interestingly, there was no massive hit off the last delivery, Dhoni did manage to squeeze in a couple and complete his half-century. Meanwhile, CSK finished at a whopping 211 and while the Capitals gave them a run for their money, they had to suffer a 13 run defeat in the end.
Here is the video. Hope it lets you unwind a bit and helps you relive those good old IPL Days.
