Dhoni took the game deep into the final over before smashing left-arm fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat for 6-4-2-4 to carry Chennai home.

This wasn’t the first time Dhoni scored 16 runs off the final four balls to close a chase successfully. He had pulled off a similar heist while playing for the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016. Against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), Dhoni played a dot ball before hitting a four and two sixes to wrap up a 173-run chase. Dhoni is now the only player to score 15-plus runs thrice in the final over in successful run chases in the IPL. No other batter has managed it more than once.
