MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings registered their place in the finals of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 as they defeated Delhi Capitals by four wicket in Qualifier 1 on Sunday. Chasing a stiff 173, the winning runs came off the CSK captain’s bat, who arrived at the crease in a tricky situation but made sure he completed the task.
Dhoni finished the match unbeaten on 18 off 6 deliveries, which included 3 fours and 1 six.
With this CSK reached their ninth IPL finals, since the inception of the tournament in 2008. Capitals, who are previous edition’s runners-up, still have a chance to join CSK in the finals. The Rishabh Pant-led unit will now lock horns with the winner of the Eliminator clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
