Top 5 Bowlers Who Dismissed MS Dhoni For A Duck In IPL History

In the history of the IPL, there have been instances where MS Dhoni, the iconic cricketer renowned for his contributions to limited-overs cricket, faced dismissals without scoring any runs, commonly referred to as getting out for a duck. Despite his retirement from international cricket, Dhoni continued to grace the IPL stage as a prominent figure for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Even though, speculations arose about his potential retirement from this league as well. Throughout Dhoni’s illustrious IPL career, he has been a linchpin for CSK, donning the roles of a successful captain and a reliable batsman. However, the previous IPL season witnessed a decline in his form, leading to CSK’s failure to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in the league’s history.

Despite this setback, Dhoni’s legacy in the IPL remains indelible. Several bowlers have managed to dismiss Dhoni for a duck in IPL history, showcasing the unpredictability of cricket.

Let’s delve into how each of these bowlers orchestrated Dhoni’s dismissals:

1. Shane Watson

During IPL 2010, representing the Rajasthan Royals, Watson outsmarted Dhoni with a first-ball dismissal in a high-scoring encounter. He attempted to negotiate Watson’s delivery but failed to make contact, resulting in an early exit.

2. Dirk Nannes

In the same IPL season, playing for the Delhi Daredevils, Nannes delivered a masterstroke by removing Dhoni without conceding any runs in a low-scoring match. His dismissal added to CSK’s woes as he fell victim to Nannes’ bowling prowess.

3. Harbhajan Singh

During the IPL 2015 playoffs, donning the Mumbai Indians jersey, Harbhajan showcased his expertise by dismissing Dhoni through a crucial LBW decision. This dismissal thwarted his efforts to lead CSK to victory, contributing to their defeat against MI.

4. Avesh Khan

A rising talent for the Delhi Capitals, Khan impressed with his bowling skills during a match against CSK. He, attempted to assert his dominance, fell prey to Khan’s deceptive delivery, resulting in an inside edge that shattered his stumps.

5. Harshal Patel

Playing for the Punjab Kings, Patel engineered Dhoni’s dismissal during a match with his deceptive slower deliveries. He anticipated Patel’s delivery, but failed to read the slower ball, leading to his stumps being uprooted.
