Saurashtra won the toss and decided to field first. Jharkhand lost their first two wickets really quick, with only Ishan Kishan making runs. The last match’s heroes shank Jaggi and Saurabh Tiwary also left the cricket pitch with 92/6. Skipper MS Dhoni made 23 runs and Kishan scored 53 and push Jharkhand to 125 in 27.3 overs.
For the spectators, Saurashtra’s win was clear. With only 125 runs to chase, Saurashtra might have thought that it was their lucky day. However, they forgot that they were dealing with the mastermind, MS Dhoni.
With an amazing strategy, MS Dhoni set an attacking field and asked his bowlers, Varun Aaron, and Rahul Shukla to go on an all out attack. Soon, Saurashtra was at 60-6 in the 18th over. Aaron picked 4 wickets and Jaskaran Singh got Sheldon Jackson out, who made the maximum runs for the team.
With Jharkhand’s unimaginable win, MS Dhoni again proved that he is one of the best captains in the history of cricket. Saurashtra got dismissed at 85 runs and Jharkhand won this impossible match all because of the cricket king, Dhoni!
