#1 The MS Dhoni special

MS Dhoni (40 off 26) finished off in style, pummeling Jasprit Bumrah for two huge sixes in the final over to take RPS to 162/4. The former Pune skipper was saving his best for the last and the most crucial moments like he always has. When Dhoni was batting, it looked like Pune were playing at home as the whole of Wankhede was heard cheering for the former Team India captain.

In his cameo, he hit 5 huge sixes out of the park, which was reminiscent of Dhoni at his peak. Mitchell McClenaghan was at the receiving end as the man from Ranchi decided it was time for some quick runs towards the end.
