After MS Dhoni hit back-to-back sixes during Mark Wood’s final over at Chepauk, Gautam Gambhir’s shocked response started a hilarious meme frenzy.
The former Indian opener earned honourable mentions in several trending tweets on Monday as a result of Gautam Gambhir’s poker face reaction during Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) vs. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match. As MS Dhoni’s CSK posted a massive total against LSG, who put up an impressive fight in chasing down the 218-run goal, Gambhir, the LSG coach, was only a bystander at the Chepauk.
At the Chepauk, CSK captain Dhoni rose to the moment by smashing back-to-back sixes off England pacer Mark Wood, who is leading the IPL 2023 in wickets. Dhoni played just 3 balls while getting 12 runs in the high-scoring match while batting at a 400 strike rate. Chennai reached 217-7 in 20 overs thanks to Dhoni’s brief appearance.
Before spinner Moeen Ali removed Mayers in the sixth over, the star batter had hit 53 off of 22 deliveries. The England all-rounder turned the match around by taking four wickets and assisting CSK in their first victory of the year. In the thrilling match between the two sides in Chennai, the Englishman claimed the vital wickets of Rahul (20), Mayers (53), Krunal Pandya (9) and Marcus Stoinis (21). Due to his outstanding bowling performance, Moeen was also awarded Player of the Match. In the IPL 2023 points standings, Dhoni’s CSK team has moved up to sixth place with the 12-run victory over LSG.
