The CSK pacer came in to bowl the third over of Mumbai Indians’ innings as MS Dhoni looked for early wickets. He dismissed Ishan Kishan on the second delivery of his over after which Mumbai Indians’ skipper Rohit Sharma got to strike as Nehal Wadhera took a single off his first delivery.

Deepak Chahar bowled a dot delivery upfront after which the CSK skipper decided to play some mind games with Rohit. Dhoni stepped up to the stump and took an attacking field as he placed a fielder at backward point, one at short third, and one at slip.

Deepak Chahar bowled a slower delivery as Rohit Sharma went down on one knee to play the lap shot over a short fine leg. However, he played the shot a bit too early as the ball took the outside edge, made contact with his thumb, and then went into the air towards the gully region.

Ravindra Jadeja was placed at the backward point position and ran in after he saw the ball coming in his direction. He took a comfortable catch as Rohit Sharma took the long walk back to the pavilion after getting dismissed for a second consecutive Duck.

Deepak Chahar was pretty excited after the dismissal as he pointed towards MS Dhoni, appreciating the CSK skipper for his brilliant plan. Even the commentators were left surprised at how MS Dhoni made Rohit Sharma fall into the trap with his mastermind strategy.
