Hyderabad, Sep 18: Last night, Chennai Super Kings lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in their Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) opener here. But CSK fans set social media abuzz after watching that mighty last-ball six from captain MS Dhoni.
It is not new for cricket fans to see Dhoni smashing sixes, the most famous being the winning six in 2011 World Cup final. And when he wielded his willow for yet another massive six, CSK supporters were jumping in joy at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
Those who saw that 101-metre six from Dhoni's blade, on TV, were busy discussing the hit, on Twitter.
The final ball of CSK's innings, bowled by Umesh Yadav, was sent sailing high over long-on and into the stands. CSK posted 157/4 in 20 overs and Dhoni was unbeaten on 35 off 20 (3x4, 2x6).
As soon as he hit that six, a message flashed on the stadium's giant screen - "MSD = Mighty Six Dhoni". In the run-chase, KKR recovered from 51/5 to win by 4 wickets.
It was a six to remember for Dhoni and CSK fans.
Here is the video of that might six.
Some of the reactions from Twitter are below.
