In the 34th match of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020), Chennai Super Kings lost to Delhi Capitals by 5 wickets. The poor bowling performance and catches of the bowlers in the middle of the match made the CSK team very heavy in this match. This is Chennai’s sixth defeat in the 9th match of IPL 2020. Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni gave the team the reason for the selection and gave the last over to replace Jadeja in place of Bravo after the match.
After the second consecutive defeat of the season against Delhi, captain Dhoni said, “Bravo was not fit, he went off the field during the match and could not come back.” That’s why I had to get Rabindra Jadeja in the last over. We had two options as Karan Sharma and Jadeja, so I went with Jadeja. Perhaps it wasn’t enough. ‘
Commenting on Dhawan’s best innings, Dhoni said, “Shikhar Dhawan’s wicket was very important and we caught a lot of his catches in the match. He is a batsman who keeps batting as long as the scoreboard continues. “I think his wicket was very important. Also, there was a big difference between the first and second innings. The pitch was behaving better in the second innings and the ball was batting better. However, we can’t take credit from Shikhar Dhawan.” He batted well in this match and the rest of the batting got him well.
The Chennai team has played 9 matches so far this season, of which the team has lost 6, and the team has won 3 matches. The team must now win all the matches to reach the playoffs. CSK will face Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi on Monday (October 19).
