In a shocking turn of events, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni was dismissed for a golden duck against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match.


Dhoni, who is known for his steady batting and composure, was facing a delivery from Harshal Patel when he was trapped leg before wicket (LBW). The decision was given after a lengthy review, leaving the crowd and fans stunned.

The most unusual aspect of the dismissal was the reaction of Harshal Patel. Instead of celebrating with his teammates, Patel walked over to Dhoni and shook his hand. He then bowed down in respect and uttered a few words that were not audible on the stump mics.

This gesture from Patel sparked speculation and intrigue. Some believe that he was showing compassion for Dhoni, who has had a challenging season so far. Others suggest that it was a sign of respect for one of the greatest cricketers of all time.


Dhoni's dismissal had a significant impact on the match. CSK, who were already struggling at 50/4, collapsed to 97 all out. PBKS eventually won the match by 54 runs.

After the match, Harshal Patel explained his reasons for reacting the way he did. 'MS Dhoni is a legend of the game,' said Patel. 'I grew up watching him play and it was an honor to dismiss him. I couldn't celebrate in the usual way because I have immense respect for him.'

Patel's gesture was praised by many, including former cricketers and commentators. They believe that it showed the true spirit of sportsmanship and respect that exists in the game of cricket.

While Dhoni's dismissal was a disappointment for CSK fans, Harshal Patel's unusual reaction will undoubtedly be remembered as a moment of class and respect in the annals of IPL history.
