Despite his pivotal role in Dhoni’s dismissal, Patel refrained from extravagant celebrations, acknowledging the significance of the moment and the respect owed to the cricketing icon.

The match itself was a showcase of Punjab Kings’ dominance, particularly in the bowling department. Arshdeep Singh set the tone early on by claiming the crucial wicket of Ajinkya Rahane, putting CSK on the back foot from the start.

Although CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad and Daryl Mitchell attempted to steady the ship with a solid partnership, the Punjab Kings’ bowling attack, led by Harshal Patel and spinner Rahul Chahar, struck back with consecutive dismissals, denting CSK’s hopes of building a substantial total.

Even as experienced campaigners like Ravindra Jadeja fought hard to salvage the innings with a spirited knock, the relentless pressure exerted by the Punjab Kings’ bowlers ultimately proved too much for CSK to overcome. With wickets falling at regular intervals, CSK found themselves struggling to post a competitive total.

However, Harshal Patel’s delivery, a well-executed yorker, caught Dhoni by surprise, resulting in his unexpected dismissal on the very first ball he faced.

This turn of events left CSK supporters stunned and added to the woes of the team, as they were unable to recover from the setback, ultimately culminating in a below-par total.
