47 runs were needed for Rising Pune Supergiant to win their home game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but only 3 overs were left on the board.
Also left however, was MS Dhoni, at the crease.
With loud murmurs doing the rounds of the stalwart losing his touch, Mahendra Singh Dhoni swept his bat around and delivered the ball to all parts of the ground. Yes, this was vintage Dhoni and it was the home dugout that celebrated the last-ball win.
Pune beating Hyderabad by 8 wickets. The world of Twitter, welcomed the return of India's favourite chaser... on the field.
Ms Dhoni does what he's done with so much confidence over the years. What a champion knock. Great to watch 💪— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) April 22, 2017
Masterful innings by Dhoni. Great to see him back in form. Nobody can be a greater finisher. Takes @RPSupergiants to a nail-biting win.— Harsh Goenka (@hvgoenka) April 22, 2017
The sleeping lion is awake. Never put a great man down. Dhoni is,was and always will be a class act.— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) April 22, 2017
Dhan dhana dhan Dhoni clinches it again in a cliffhanger, on the very last ball. Truly a captain of cool, with the heart of a lion— Siddhartha Basu (@babubasu) April 22, 2017

Dhoni's not done a Houdini, Dhoni's done a Dhoni! Simply amazing run chase. Arguably the best this tournament #IPL2017— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 22, 2017
MS Dhoni played like a boss today. Hope his team bosses were watching. Get the memo dear Goenkas: Nobody puts Mahi in a corner. #RPSvSRH— Harneet Singh (@Harneetsin) April 22, 2017
