New Delhi: The Indian Premiere League (IPL) 2023 has been finally won by Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets, smashing the defending champions Gujarat Titans. MS Dhoni came to the limelight in the IPL 2023 final match with his incredible stumping at the Narendra Modi stadium. He took the most challenging player of GT, Shubhman Gill, off the field in just 0.12 seconds.
Gill made an effort to drive a Ravindra Jadeja delivery in the eighth over of GT’s innings. But the ball quickly twisted away from his bat’s edge. Gill’s rear foot accidentally stepped outside the crease during this motion, and Dhoni produced a magnificent stumping in just 0.1 seconds, returning the in-form batter to the bench.
