When Chennai Super Kings was playing against the Kolkata Knight Riders, they were on the verge of a 3rd straight win in the inaugural IPL. Dhoni completed this feat for CSK by hitting the winning runs for six on Murali Karthik’s ball and proved that the captain of Super Kings is also a Super King.

In the final league encounter against Kings XI Punjab, Dhoni was at the crease, with 50 runs needed in the last 4 overs. Dhoni, being a death over specialist, managed to get closer to the target with frequent boundaries and much-needed support from Albie Morkel. He scored the winning runs by hitting a lofty six, thus taking his team to the semi-final. Surprisingly, CSK went on to win the title too.
