Twitter has a field day after CSKvsRR match!
Be it the amusing six by Ravindra Jadeja or Mahendra Singh Dhoni losing his cool over a decision by the field umpire, yesterday’s match between Rajasthan Royals(RR) and Chennai Super Kings(CSK) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur was nothing less than a spectacle.
In the nail-biting match, CSK scripted their sixth win in seven games on Thursday as they gunned down a modest 152 run target in a dramatic final over.
Dhoni’s 100th Indian Premier League (IPL) win against RR was marred by an incident where he lost his cool dramatically towards the end of the game, drawing criticism from different corners.
Jadeja’s ‘awkward’ six and Mitchell Santner’s last ball six that sealed a win for the defending champions are among the prominent highlights of the game.
Here’s how some Twitter users reacted:

Dhoni had to step in when umpire made a mistake. Nothing wrong in that. That’s what senior umpires do. #RRvCSK

The last over was directed by Ekta Kapoor. Full of drama. #RRvCSK
