Chennai Super Kings (CSK) staged yet another nail-biting finish against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and apart from the players and the fans in the stands, there were two people in the stadium, who absolutely summed up the situation of the match.
The co-owner of KKR, Shah Rukh Khan, who was present in the stands to cheer for his team was on his feet for the last couple of over after Sam Billings’s knock of 56 brought CSK back into the game.
Just a few metres away, CSK skipper MS Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi Dhoni, sat with the palm covering her face and her eyes speaking of the tension she was feeling.
Five runs were required off the last two deliveries and with the previous match hero Dwayne Bravo on the other side of the pitch, it was Ravindra Jadeja who smashed the winning six.
