MS Dhoni back in Ranchi after heartbreaking loss against RCB in Bengaluru

MS Dhoni back in Ranchi after heartbreaking loss against RCB in Bengaluru. Dhoni left Bengaluru the next day and arrived at Ranchi airport with his family on Sunday, May 19.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni returned to his hometown of Ranchi on May 18, following a heartbreaking loss to Royal Challengers Bengaluru. The loss meant that the Chennai Super Kings would miss out on the Indian Premier League playoffs in 2024. Dhoni left Bengaluru the following day and arrived at Ranchi airport with his family on Sunday, May 19.

After winning the toss CSK captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad invited RCB to bat first. On the back of a half-century from Faf du Plessis and a solid knock by Virat Kohli, the hosts posted a challenging 218 on board. The visitors lost early wickets but kept themselves in the game. In the final over, they needed 34 runs to win and 17 runs to qualify for the playoffs. Yash Dayal held his nerves and took RCB home by conceding just 7 runs. Matthew Hayden summed up, what the season meant for Dhoni.

”Yeah, I suppose the thing is when you come to the end of your career, whether it is the last part of his career or not, what you don’t want to see is diminishing returns as an athlete. Firstly, as a leader, he is The Thala of the Chennai Super Kings. This is telling me that nothing here is about becoming anything else other than first place,” Hayden told Star Sports.

“He’s desperately using his brains, all of that cricket knowledge. And of course, the power is there and that’s always been MS Dhoni. He’s always hit balls at this stage of an innings. At the front, you can understand how players can hit it. But at the back, it’s really hard to hit balls,” he added.
