The heavyweight contest between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings always produces some of the best cricket action and Thursday was no different as CSK won a last-ball thriller owing to MS Dhoni‘s heroics at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy. Dhoni smashed 28 not out off 13 balls with the help of three fours and one six to help CSK register their second win of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season. Ahead of the toss of such a crucial game, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and CSK counterpart Ravindra Jadeja engaged in a hilarious banter.
Jadeja had won the toss and opted to field first against Mumbai Indians. After answering Nick Knight‘s questions, Jadeja was walking back when Rohit stopped him and said “Fielding? You said you will bat.”
After that, Nick Knight, Rohit and Jadeja broke into laughter.
