WATCH: MS Dhoni does it again! Gets DRS call right to increase miseries of Suryakumar Yadav
In the ongoing high-octane fixture between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians, CSK skipper MS Dhoni once again gave a testament of why he is one of the sharpest minds in cricket. Dhoni showed his presence of mind and reviewed a decision successfully to send MI danger-man Suryakumar Yadav bag to the dugout.
New to the crease, Yadav decided to sweep at a Mitchell Santner delivery going down leg. Dhoni collected the ball and followed up with a loud appeal. MSD's accurate decision-making with the Decision Review System (DRS), popularly heralded by his fans as the Dhoni Review System came to the fore once again.
The umpire, Nikhil Patwardhan signaled a wide, however, Dhoni turned back the clock and like previous times, called for the DRS immediately.
Upon checking the replays, UltraEdge too confirmed that the ball indeed had brushed SKY's glove on its way to Dhoni. As a result, third umpire Daniel Patwardhan had to overturn the original decision. The wicket saw MI slip to 67 for three wickets in the eighth over.
Suryakumar Yadav began walking off as soon as Dhoni opted for DRS
Similar to Dhoni, SKY too knew he was gone and soon began to walk off as soon as the CSK wicketkeeper challenged the decision. The replay showed there was a slim nick and the umpire had to change the decision, resulting in SKY departing after scoring just 1 run off two deliveries.
The fans in the crowd went berserk after that as they got a glimpse of the old memories of how Dhoni used to do the same day in and day out while representing the Men in Blue.
