The real MS Dhoni finally joined the party, a bit too late for Pune's liking though, and showed exactly what he is still capable off as he scored a six off the last ball to condemn Punjab to the bottom of the table. Twitter exploded to Dhoni's brilliance and here are the best of the tweets.
This was perhaps one of the most inconsequential match in IPL's history.

Finally, Ashwin decides to turn up to play for Pune.
We have a feeling that Miller will be jobless for a long time now...
Vijay has stepped up since gaining the captaincy, but he has not received any support from his teammates.
4th 50+ score for Vijay as captain in this IPL - most by a KXIP captain in a single season. Gilchrist made 3 in 2011 season. #RPSvKXIP— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) May 21, 2016
Zampa has had an outstanding debut season, we will see a lot of him in future...
Speaking of debut season...it has not been a memorable one for Behardien...
Tiwary just could not get going today, much like Dhoni this season.
Pune have left themselves with too much to do, in too many games..

Rising Super Fucking Giants
What we want?
How we do it?
Keeping hitters in dugout and leaving it for too late.
Literally, as a dog interrupted the last ball of the match..

Thala, finally, did what we know he is capable off..

I doubt it!
Has there even been a more thrilling finish to a more pointless game? #IPL— cricBC (@cricBC) May 21, 2016
Although Axar had a good spell, giving the ball to him in the last over was a strange decision indeed.
Getting Axar to bowl that last over worst bit of leadership since the captain of the Titanic ignored the iceberg warnings and sped up— Peter Miller (@TheCricketGeek) May 21, 2016
