In the ongoing match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings, veteran cricketer MS Dhoni once again demonstrated that age is just a number. Dhoni exhibited his fitness and agility at the age of 41 by making an incredible run-out to dismiss Dhruv Jurel.
The event occurred in the 20th over of the game, when Pathirana delivered a wide full-toss outside the leg-stump to Padikkal. Padikkal attempted to flick the ball but failed to make contact with it. The ball went towards Dhoni, who dived to his right to stop it. In a seamless motion, Dhoni stood up and flicked the ball back to hit the stumps directly. As a result, Dhruv Jurel, who was attempting to return to the crease, was run out for 34 runs off 15 deliveries, comprising of 3 fours and 2 sixes.
