Who is MS Dhoni’s Kryptonite in IPL? KKR plan to unleash ace star at Chepauk

CSK vs KKR: Kolkata Knight Riders plan to use Narine in MS Dhoni vs Sunil Narine matchup at Chepauk

MS Dhoni is known for his finishing habits. Not only does he go on to hit the ball over the breeches, he boasts of having a formidable strike-rate against opponents. However, Kolkata Knight Riders have MS Dhoni’s kryptonite. The visitors plan to unleash their ace bowler against Dhoni in the CSK vs KKR clash to contain the destructive finisher from wreaking havoc.

MS Dhoni’s kryptonite is Kolkata Knight Riders’ ace all-rounder Sunil Narine. Till date in the Indian Premier League, MS Dhoni has faced the Caribbean spinner for 91 deliveries. And in those 91 deliveries, 50 are dot balls. It is safe to say that MS Dhoni is unable to tackle KKR’s star spinner.

Sunil Narine: MS Dhoni’s Kryptonite

It is safe to say that MS Dhoni hasn’t been able to tackle Sunil Narine since 2011 in IPL. The former India and Chennai Super Kings skipper has managed to slam just 2 fours and no sixes against his adversary. In the mean time, Narine has managed to dismiss Dhoni twice.

However, the biggest advantage for the KKR spinner is the amount of dot balls Dhoni has played. MS Dhoni has gone on to play a record of 50 dot balls in the 91 balls that he has faced and has managed to score just 48 runs.

In the much anticipated CSK vs KKR clash, the visitors will be keen to use Narine when Thala comes to bat at Chepauk. KKR will be desperate to maintain their 100% win record with a win against Ruturaj Gaikwad and Co.
