The Roars of ‘CSK… CSK…’ drowned in the Wankhede stadium as Faf du Plessis invoked his “inner Dhoni”, according to Graeme Smith, and took Chennai Super Kings to the final of Indian Premier League 2018.
Despite Sunrisers Hyderabad’s low score of 139, CSK were in trouble after losing early wickets. With 43 to win off the final 3 overs and seven wickets down, barely anyone gave CSK a chance, particularly with SRH’s incredible bowling attack but du Plessis and Shardul Thakur slammed 27 off 8 balls to seal the game with 5 balls to spare.
However, the highlight of the match was the catch that Dwayne Bravo took on his own bowling. Dwayne got Yusuf Pathan out by taking his catch on his follow through by diving right and then rolling over before performing his “Run the world” dance.
Hurling himself low and to the right, Bravo almost performed a cartwheel before snaffling the ball with one hand as it fizzed past him at speed.
