Watch: MS Dhoni’s Dramatic Run Out Causes Stir On Twitter, CSK Fans Fume

Watch: MS Dhoni


However, what followed next was the nerviest few minutes for both sets of fans. As the on-field umpire signalled for the third umpire, replays started playing on TV screens. Nigel Llong, the third umpire, must have immediately known he had a task on his hands and further viewing of replays from different angles only served to increase the confusion.

See for yourself and decide. Was MS Dhoni out or not out?

While commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, based on one angle, vehemently called for MS Dhoni to be given out, other commentators were not so sure and thought the benefit of the doubt and the inconclusive nature of the replays would see the third umpire rule in the batsman’s favour.

But it wasn’t to be for Chennai and their fans as MS Dhoni was given out as Mumbai Indians sniffed a way back into the game.

After the match many CSK fans took to Twitter to vent their anger at the third umpire’s decision even as some defended the dismissal.

After Shane Watson had hit a fierce 80, CSK needed two runs off the final ball to overtake Mumbai Indians’ 149/8 but Sri Lankan Lasith Malinga dismissed Shardul Thakur with a perfect yorker to claim the landmark win.

Windies all-rounder Kieron Pollard smashed an unbeaten 41 off 25 balls to set up what turned out to be the winning total for Mumbai Indians.
