IPL 2018 will go down with some of the most exciting matches in the entire history of Indian Premier League. This includes all the big runs made, records broken, chases accomplished and targets destroyed. There’s always something exciting happening in some match and the same happened yesterday.

It almost seems as if CSK just can’t have a clear-cut win or lose, they need to have some thrilling moments, exceptional innings and more than anything, something unique from MS Dhoni.

Last night’s match between CSK and KXIP was another cold-blooded example of this. Chennai Super Kings were chasing a target of 197 runs, set by the exceptional performance from Kings XI Punjab. The target resulted in another phenomenal performance from Chennai’s side. However, it was Dhoni who gathered nationwide interest with each and every ball he faced.

Country’s favourite wicketkeeper-batsman hammered unbeaten 79 runs off just 44 balls which went on to become Dhoni’s highest score in T20 cricket. What made Dhoni’s knock even more special is the fact that he gave a scare to Kings XI Punjab team despite struggling what looked like a back spasm. Just think of what the scenario had been if there was nothing holding Dhoni’s back back.

But he did the best he could, along with a hard-hitting last-ball six. And because nothing goes unnoticed, especially something like this from Dhoni, Twitterati immediately started lauding Captain Cool for his innings. Here are some of the best tweets on Dhoni’s 79 runs off 44 balls.

No matter what you do Dhoni, there’s a huge base of fans who won’t stop feeling proud of you.
