It was a match up made in Superhero universe. Guru vs Chela was the theme. Rishabh Pant’s spidey senses vs Dhoni’s Iron Man mentoring.
But we all know MSD is unpredictable, a maverick. To counter the narrative was always on the cards. IPL fans eagerly waited for this as Dhoni played hide and seek with CSK fans and batting order.
Finally in the 16th over, the moment arrived. As chinna thala got out, out came Thala. CSK social media was abuzz to see Iron Man’s helicopter from MSD’s bat, heart beat increased.
As CSK fans waited eagerly Dhoni pulled off the unthinkable, transformed his innings to FLASH and got himself off the field before Mutual funds ads could say “Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risks, read all scheme related documents carefully”.
As it stands Dhoni has set the record for fastest duck of this IPL, Hotstar says some CSK fans were still refreshing the app. Safe to say MSD won this round.
