Chennai Super Kings were stunning in the fielding tonight. Later in the innings, skipper MS Dhoni grabbed a stunner behind stumps to send back Kolkata Knight Riders’ Shivam Mavi. Incidentally, with this sensational catch, Dhoni surpassed Dinesh Karthik to become the wicket keeper with most catches in IPL history.
The moment occurred in the final over of the innings when CSK bowler Dwayne Bravo managed to induce a thick outside edge from Shivam Mavi’s bat. Dhoni jumped to his right to catch the ball, missed on the first attempt and then dived to catch it clean even though he was not wearing his gloves at that moment.
Despite excellent work in the field, Chennai Super Kings lost the contest to Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs. The team is placed at the fifth spot on the points table.
