The most shocking moment for the Chennai Super Kings’ fans was noticed in the final against Gujarat Titans. MS Dhoni missed out on the very first ball in a rather shocking way. Dhoni came to bat at 6 number when Chennai needed quick runs to lead to the successful chase of 214 runs. Mohit Sharma got the captain out on a golden duck in the hands of David Miller.
The final of the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League recorded many surprising moments as the IPL giants were set to seize the IPL 2023 trophy. MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to go with the ball first. The Gujarat batters brutally hammered runs and posted a gigantic total of 214 runs.
This was supposedly the last IPL match for the legendary captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Although Dhoni had maintained silence on the commentary. On this occasion when his team needed it the most, his getting out on a golden duck is indeed a matter of sorrow for himself and his fans as well.

Dhoni has earned the tag of the best finisher in the world. And when he walked down to the ground to bat, fans hoped impossible turning possible as for what he is known. Dhoni walked downcast out of the ground and looked pretty desperate after his early dismissal.
Dhoni is likely to bid farewell from the cricket world after this final. He is one of the most popular sportsmen in the world. Fans indeed hoped for a better farewell for him. However, Dhoni will always stay in people’s hearts.
Dhoni-led Chennai had a good start as the openers went on to add quick runs. Devon Conway as well as the middle order added crucial quick runs to help their team chase the target. The rain interrupted once again on the reserve day as Chennai openers just walked down to the ground in the very first over of the second inning.
