CSK Gives Their Approval To Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad’s Updated Account Of MS Dhoni


With just four balls left, MS Dhoni’s power hitting proved to be the difference between victory and defeat, according to Ruturaj Gaikwad, who paid him a great compliment.

Following his team’s 20-run loss to the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya could not contain his admiration for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s tactical brilliance. While Dhoni’s flurry of three sixes and his hastily completed two runs off the fourth and final delivery gave CSK the advantage, Pandya believed that the former India captain’s read of the game from behind the stumps was what ultimately determined the outcome on an incredible track.

“They (CSK) used the extended boundaries well and had clever strategies. Even though Rohit Sharma made his second IPL century and batted the entire game, his team was unable to chase 206. “They got the hang of it and they have a man behind the stumps telling them what’s working,” Pandya remarked.

With just four balls left, Dhoni’s power hitting proved to be the difference between win and failure, according to CSK captain Ruturaj Gaikwad, who paid Dhoni a great tribute.

The game’s outcome was ultimately determined by Dhoni, 42, who scored 20 off of four deliveries.

The fact that our young wicketkeeper, MSD, hit three sixes later in the order, I believe, made a big difference. You need ten to fifteen extra runs to get started on this type of ground. We were expecting to bowl at 215-220, but Bumrah did a good job,” remarked Gaikwad, who replaced Dhoni as captain this year.

“In terms of bowling, our execution was flawless. For sixty, I would have taken six overs even in powerplay. Both bowling and hitting are required at these types of fields. The bowling of our (Lasith) Malinga (Matheesha Pathirana) was outstanding; he nailed those yorkers “

“Nothing, Jinks (Rahane) was carrying a bit of a niggle,” Gaikwad responded when asked why he did not open the batting instead of sending Ajinkya Rahane with Rachin Ravindra. believed that opening up and making fast runs was preferable for him. Anywhere is fine for me to bat.” After returning to the team after recuperating from a niggle, Player of the Match Pathirana, who recorded his best IPL numbers of 4/28, admitted that he was a little anxious.

“I felt uneasy when we bowled during powerplay. I only consider execution; I don’t consider results. First off, all of the players and support personnel assisted me when I had a niggle before the two-week mark.

“That’s the main thing to have my form,” stated the Sri Lankan, emulating the steps taken by the renowned Malinga.
