After affecting a brilliant run-out in the IPL 2024 opener between the Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the M.A Chidambaram Stadium on Friday, MS Dhoni came up with his iconic smile. The video of the same went viral on social media as Dhoni affected the dismissal in the final ball of the innings.

The incident occurred in the last ball of the Royal Challengers Bengaluru's innings as Dinesh Karthik missed the ball, but ran through. Dhoni grabbed the ball quickly and aimed at the stumps, hitting it successfully, thereby running Anuj Rawat out, in the process. The Royal Challengers Bengaluru thereby set 174 to win for the defending champions in the tournament opener.

Dinesh Karthik and Anuj Rawat rescue Royal Challengers from 78-5:

After winning the toss, RCB skipper Faf du Plessis provided their side with an electric start, including smashing multiple boundaries off an over of Deepak Chahar. It was majorly Mustafizur Rahman, who pegged the Royal Challengers back by removing Du Plessis and Rajat Patidar.

Glenn Maxwell also departed first ball to leave their side reeling at 42-3, while Virat Kohli and Cameron Green also perished in quick succession. Nevertheless, Karthik and Rawat bought themselves some time before playing their big shots. The pair stitched a partnership of 95 to help RCB claw their way back in the contest with a total of 173-6.

The Super Kings' four overseas players in this game are Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, Maheesh Theekshana, and Rahman, while RCB have played Du Plessis, Maxwell, Green, and Alzarri Joseph.
