Was There A Price for MS Dhoni’s Hat-Trick of Sixes

As the Chennai Super Kings batter hit Hardik Pandya for three consecutive sixes during Sunday’s IPL 2024 match against the Mumbai Indians, Ms. Dhoni left both fans and analysts utterly spellbound. A legendary Dhoni knock, which saw the experienced wicket-keeper batsman hit 20 runs in only 4 balls at an incredible strike rate of 500, was witnessed in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Dhoni, who is 42 years old, has mostly restricted himself to a finishing position for his team, and his strike was crucial in pushing the total above 200 runs. In a video that was shared on social media, Dhoni could be seen hobbling and wearing protection around his knee, thus it appeared that the blow had a price.
