Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the Chennai Super Kings rolled back the years to reach their ninth Indian Premier League final after beating Delhi Capitals by four wickets in Dubai on Sunday.
Needing 13 off the last over, Dhoni hit a square cut, got a bit of luck going his way and then pulled Tom Curran for the most celebrated T20 boundary in recent times. Before that, he had slapped Avesh Khan for a six over mid-wicket.

Here are some reactions to CSK’s super win:
