New Delhi: MS Dhoni walked out to bat for Rising Pune Supergiant at a breezy MCA international stadium on Saturday with pressure of critics on his shoulders and a victory over defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in sight. (IPL 10 - Full Coverage | Points Table)
Captain Cool, as he is rightly named, hardly lets the circumstances get the better of him and with a scintillating show, Mahi proved yet again why he is known as one of the best finishers of the game.
In his thrilling innings of 61 runs of 34 balls, Dhoni hit a total of 3 sixes and 5 fours, but it was his trademark 'helicopter shot' off the bowling of purple cap holder Bhuvneshwar Kumar that stood out.

Heaping praise on the efforts of the 35-year-old stumper, Pune skipper Steve Smith said: "Got pretty close towards the end, but MS (Dhoni) did what`s he`s done for such a long period of time. Under pressure, he comes good again."
The Supergiant's six wicket win has helped them jump from last to the fourth spot in the IPL team standings and Smith is confident of getting up the ladder with four more home games.
