MS Dhoni made a vintage knock of 18 off 6 balls against the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 Qualifier 1. Dhoni’s knock infuriated the fans and the current India captain Virat Kohli could not stop expressing his feelings after seeing Dhoni hitting the ball in all parts of the ground to end the match. In his tweet, Kohli said that Dhoni’s tapping made him jump from his seat.
“And King is once again the best finisher in the game. He made me jump out of my seat again tonight. SMsdhoni,” Kohli tweeted.
