Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has clinched their 3rd Indian Premier League (IPL) title after defeating mighty Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday night.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo might not have gotten a chance to bat against SRH in the final but the duo ensured they got some action out in the middle after indulging in three run challenge.
‘Thalla’ MSD and Bravo ‘Champion’, took on each other to see who could run three runs the fastest. There were no pads involved, just a bat in hand as they ran between wickets to see who is quicker.
The race turned out to be quite close as both players were neck and neck for the entire length of the race but the 36-year-young captain was the quicker one.
The former Indian captain is considered to be one of the quickest runners between wickets in world cricket, and his victory against Dwayne Bravo has proved how fit Dhoni is.

After clinching the victory, Dhoni made sure to slam the critics, who were doubting CSK’s chances in the competition, citing age, that it is just a number.
Man of the match, Shane Watson’s unbeaten 117 runs made a mockery of 179-run target against one of the best bowling attacks of the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
