MS Dhoni instructions for Dwaine Pretorius at Bumrah over

Dwaine Pretorius shared Dhoni's advice on the last phase of the match in which he said, ‘I wanted to go for that scoop shot in the first over against Bumrah (his third), but he (Dhoni) said, 'Wait, wait, wait'. I waited and the next over I said, 'Now I'm going.' And he said to go for it. I went for it. We knew we needed five boundaries, no dots and we could get over the line. I'm working hard and just glad I could contribute to a win to the team today and hopefully we can win a few more."

Only 6 runs were bowled in the 17th over by Bumrah. CSK's Dwaine Pretorius tried to hit a scoop shot in that over. With 6 wickets already gone, it will be difficult for the new batsmen if the wickets fall in the last over. So Dhoni warned not to hit shots for such risk. Accordingly only two singles were taken in that over. Following this, Dwayne Pretorius hit two fours in the 19th over off Bumrah. So 14 runs in that over went and marked a turning point in the game.
