After losing to Punjab, Dhoni put the class of bowlers! He said, ‘They want to know that…’
The 41st match of IPL 2023 is being played between Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings. The match was played at Chepauk Stadium, CSK’s home ground, in which the visitors Punjab Kings won by 4 wickets. Chasing the target of 201 runs, Punjab won on the last ball. After the defeat, CSK captain MS Dhoni lashed out at the team’s bowlers. According to Dhoni, CSK had to accept defeat because the bowlers spent extra runs in some of the middle overs.
Meanwhile, CSK won the toss and decided to bat first in this match. CSK scored 200 for 4 in the stipulated 20 overs. In reply, Punjab Kings won by three runs off the last ball. After 15 overs, CSK’s score was 129 for 3. But Tushar Deshpande spent 24 runs in the 16th over. Ravindra Jadeja spent 17 runs in the next over. In these two overs, Punjab’s batsmen found their way and the team got closer to the target. In the last over, Punjab needed 9 runs to win. Youngster Mathisha Pathirana bowled well in this over, but could not lead the team to victory. Sikandar Raza (13 off 7 balls) took three off the last ball to give Punjab the win.
The bowlers cost CSK dearly in the 16th and 17th overs. Captain MS Dhoni () also expressed his displeasure about this. After the match, Dhoni said, “We bowled two overs badly in the middle overs. Bowlers should know where to bowl. It was clear that the batsmen would try to play big shots.” At this time, Dhoni also addressed the CSK batsmen. According to Dhoni, since the bowlers in the team are young, the batsmen should take more responsibility. “We could still score 10 to 15 runs with the bat. Our bowlers are still young. They need to get some more experience,” said Dhoni. Dhoni also praised the late Yuva Pathirana.
Meanwhile, although Punjab won the toss for both teams, CSK’s opener Devon Conway was awarded the man of the match award. Conway scored an unbeaten 92 off 52 balls. In reply, not a single batsman could score a half-century for Punjab. But still beat CSK.
