Santner does a Dhoni in nail-biter vs Rajasthan

Despite some umpiring flaws, Chennai Super Kings held their nerves to clinch a nail-biting thriller against Rajasthan Royals as Mitchell Santner’s last ball six sealed another win for the defending champions here on Thursday.

With Chennai reeling at 24/4, it was Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu who anchored their team’s innings and took their side on the verge of victory before falling as Santner played a Dhoni to take the game away for the yellow brigade.
