Indian Premier League 2022, CSK vs PBKS: MS Dhoni shows quick reflexes to run out Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Watch

Despite being 40 years old, MS Dhoni showed his quick reflexes in Match 11 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The veteran played his part in the dismissal of Punjab Kings (PBKS) Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who went to an enormous mix-up against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday. The Sri Lankan batsman received a delivery from Chris Jordan in the second over, straightened the bowler’s left and went out for a single. Halfway through, he realized that Dhawan had rejected the run and tried to get back to the end of the striker, but Jordan and Dhoni did the rest. The English pacer had a doll at the end of the batter and missed, but Dhoni was there to cover his teammate and dive to collect the ball and parry on the stumps.
