Be it Mumbai, Vizag or Lucknow, whenever Dhoni hits the ball, it just becomes a box-office stuff. MS Dhoni has lit up this IPL by playing short cameos for Chennai Super Kings so far. Yesterday, 'Thala' again came to the rescue of CSK by playing a handful innings of 28 of just 9 balls which took the team to 176. 

As soon as Dhoni reached the batting crease, the crowd in Lucknow got bonkers as they got their money’s worth by seeing the former Indian captain bat.
Meanwhile, Quinton de Kock’s wife Sasha revealed that the sound level just touched 95 decibels, according to her smartwatch. 

Meanwhile, it was the message in her smartwatch that caught everyone's attention which she posted on her Instagram story. It read, “Sound levels hit 95 decibels. Just 10 minutes at this level can cause temporary hearing loss.”

After the match, KL Rahul also talked about the impact of Dhoni during the match. "MSD walks in and the bowlers feel intimidated. The bowlers were under pressure, the crowd was really loud...," he said. 

Chasing 177, LSG looked in absolute ease, thanks to fine knock of 82 of 53 balls by KL Rahul as they beat CSK by 8 wickets. 

CSK and LSG will again face each other on April 23 in Chennai.
