IPL 2022 has been a disappointing season for Chennai Super Kings and they were bundled up for a low total of 97 against Mumbai Indians. Mukesh Choudhary produced a unique moment as he was caught short of the crease by Ishan Kishan with a spot-on throw while stealing a single with MS Dhoni.
Chennai Super Kings have been only their own shadow this season and haven’t performed like a champion team. In the match against Mumbai Indians, the batting let them down once again in the tournament. CSK lost wickets consistently and were all-out on a total of 97. MS Dhoni tried to anchor the innings but wickets fell from the other end.
Riley Meredith was bowling the 16th over of the first innings and he bowled a bouncer on the last ball. MS Dhoni was facing the ball while Mukesh Choudhary was there on the other end. In order, to keep the strike to himself, Dhoni left the short delivery and both the batters started running to steal a single. Ishan Kishan collected the ball behind the stumps and caught Mukesh Choudhary short of the crease with an accurate throw. i
Not as you think!
Getting a bowler run out just to get strike and score few runs to increase average. Typical Dhoni.— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) May 12, 2022

Well played mahi 🙌#MSDhoni𓃵
What a sync!
MS Dhoni deliberately run out his partner on team Score of 97. Just to dedicate it to GG 97 in WC11 final. Greatest for a reason 😍— Imran Saiyyed (@SaiyyedImran) May 12, 2022
It was not CSK's day today!
Dhoni and bravo make sure that they did not get all out early before 60 woh dono thoda run banaye warna it would have been a disaster.— Mohit Gupta (MG) (@iamrealmohit434) May 12, 2022
There was no point to give strike there!
Dhoni trying to sneak run, off Ishan Kishan doesn’t end well. We’ve seen this before 👀— Shrutika // Unreliable Car Season (@Shrustappen33) May 12, 2022
Tho Dhoni wasn’t on the receiving end today.
CSK 97 ALL OUT.
Dhoni looked absolute furious after that run out.#IPL2022— Stone Cold (@StoneCo06301258) May 12, 2022
