Matthew Hayden is among the most aggressive openers to dominate white-ball cricket. Hayden was a mainstay in Chennai Super Kings (CSK) within the preliminary years and scored 1,107 runs from 32 matches together with eight half-centuries with a private best of 93. However, Hayden in a video posted on his Twitter account revealed that his favorite second of IPL was a contest between CSK and Kings XI Punjab where he scored just 5 runs.

“In 2010 I got the opportunity to meet Dalai Lama, it was a great moment in my life, I got the chance to meet someone so special. I still remember the match between CSK and Kings XI Punjab at Dharamsala, we needed more than 190 and we were under the pump,” Hayden stated within the video.

“It was then that MS Dhoni walked out to the center and began to tee off from the beginning, he scored 54 off just 27 (29) balls, Suresh Raina scored 46 runs, each of them had a strike charge of over than 150 and because of this, we entered the finals,” he added.

It was a must-win sport for CSK to succeed in the semi-final and Dhoni’s knock helped the crew chase down the goal with two balls to spare. The 48-year-old additional revealed his second-best IPL second which occurred per week later within the IPL 2010 closing.

“My second-best memory is when Mumbai Indians and CSK took on each other in the 2010 IPL finals. We all know that it is the real rivalry in IPL. My favourite moment was when Albie Morkel dismissed Kieron Pollard, MS Dhoni had placed me at straight mid-off. I took a catch there to send off Pollard, and as a result, we ended up winning the tournament,” the Queensland-born cricketer stated.
