Cricket is a game of strategy and skill, where batters must use their brains as much as their bats. This was reaffirmed during the Chennai Super Kings versus Lucknow Super Giants match in Lucknow where MS Dhoni's astute judgment in utilizing DRS in a wide review showcased his sharp skills.

‌Lucknow Super Giants got off to a flying start by dismissing Chennai Super Kings' batsmen Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra within the powerplay. However, Ajinkya Rahane stabilized the innings, guiding the team to 51/2 alongside Ravindra Jadeja by the end of the powerplay. The momentum shifted as Chennai lost key wickets, including Rahane, Shivam Dube, and Sameer Rizvi, leaving all hopes pinned on MS Dhoni for stability. Meanwhile, Dhoni's entrance into the game marked a crucial moment, especially when his razor-sharp decision to review a wide ball proved fruitful.

In the 18th over, Lucknow speedster bowler Mohsin Khan delivered a ball outside the off stump, tempting Dhoni to drive. However, the ball was too wide sneaking Dhoni's bat and landing straight into the gloves of Lucknow wicketkeeper KL Rahul. Initially deemed a legal delivery by on-field umpire Anil Chaudhary, Dhoni promptly called for a review. TV umpire Bruce Oxenford reviewed the footage and confirmed that the ball was indeed outside the line, prompting Chaudhary to correct his decision and signal a wide.

The Twitterrati spoke about the Dhoni-DRS camaraderie and lauded his tactical acumen to use the DRS effectively.
