Mahendra Singh Dhoni did what he does best, give opposition a massive scare, said Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli after his team beat Chennai Super Kings by one run in an IPL humdinger on Sunday at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
“A whole lot of emotions,” said Kohli, at the post-match presentation ceremony.
“We were outstanding with the ball until the 19th over mark. On the last ball, that (run-out) was the last thing I would have expected to happen. Feels good to win a game by a small margin. MS did what he does best and he gave us all a massive scare,” the RCB skipper said, after Parthiv Patel ran out Shardul Thakur off the last ball to clinch the win.

Dhoni, who nearly won the match for CSK with a magnificent 84 not out off 48 balls, felt that missing a few boundaries earlier cost his team the game.
“A lot of boundaries were needed, right now you can calculate, one run there, and two runs there and we just lost by one run. But you can also say we missed some boundaries,” he said.
Earlier in the match, Parthiv Patel’s 53 off 37 balls, helped RCB post a total of 161/7 in 20 Overs and was adjudged man of the match.
