Sakshi Dhoni, wife of MS Dhoni, has to face some awkward situation when she posted a tweet over the most controversial moment of the match. In the fourth match of the season between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, an Umpiring blunder took everyone by surprise. In the 18th over of the innings, Deepak Chahar bowled a sharp cutter that cut Rajasthan Royals Tom Curran into half and settled into the mitts of Dhoni (or it seemed so) off an edge.
On the vociferous appeal from the CSK camp, the on-field umpire gave Tom Curran out without even checking whether the catch was clean or not. With no reviews left, Tom Curran reached out to umpire to refer it to third umpire. However, after a little discussion with Square-leg umpire, Tom Curran was ordered to march towards pavilion.

And then came the moment of twist, in the meantime, the third umpire watched the replay of big screen and intervened the decision to call back Tom Curran on the field. Dhoni looked quite displeased with the drama that was folding out.
Sakshi Dhoni was also looked displeased with all the drama and umpiring standard as she tweeted: “If u r using the technology, then use it the right way…….”
But in what came a shock to many, the ball clearly bounced off the turf before settling into the mitts of Dhoni. Subsequently the decision was reversed and Dhoni, who was confident of catch, has to take back seat. Sakshi Dhoni also deleted her tweet soon to save herself from embarrassing situation but it was all over by then.
Coming onto the match, Rajasthan Royals, batting first, posted a mammoth 216-7 on a small ground of Dubai. Sanju Samson (74 off 32) and Steven Smith (69 off 47) were chief architect of the innings in middle overs before Jofra Archer’s (27 off 8) blitz at the end took Royals at another level.
Chasing the huge target, Chennai Super Kings never looked in the chase as they were dented heavily by Rajasthan Royals spin duo of Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia. Faf du Plessis (72 off 37) and MS Dhoni (29 off 17) did cut short the losing margin by late attack, but it was Royals game all day long.
