Chennai’s defeat is due to Dhoni? The former legend of England said the big reason
Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni lost in the opening match of IPL 2023. The defending champion Gujarat Titans team gave Chennai a shock defeat by 5 wickets. Chennai fans were upset after this defeat. Also, former England spinner Graeme Swann blamed Chennai’s batting order for the defeat. He said that the middle order of the team was not right. So they faced defeat.
What did Swan say?
According to Graeme Swann, if MS Dhoni had come in to bat first, the situation would have been different. Speaking on Jio Cinemas after the match, he said, “Chennai Super Kings’ middle order was completely wrong. MS Dhoni should have come to bat before Shivam Dubey.”
Gujarat won the first match of IPL 2023 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. In the match, Chennai scored 178 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs when they batted first. While batting from Chennai this time, Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 92 runs in 50 balls with the help of 4 fours and 9 sixes. However, he did not get support from any other batsman. Gujarat completed this challenge of Chennai by scoring 182 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 19.2 overs.

In fact, apart from Rituraj, Moeen Ali scored 23 runs for Chennai in this match. Chennai’s expensive player Ben Stokes could score only 7 runs. Also, Ambati Rayudu scored 12 runs and Shivam Dubey scored 19 runs. MS Dhoni scored an unbeaten 14 off 7 balls. It looked like the team would cross the 200-run mark at one point, but the team could not score more runs in the last over. So, Chennai suffered the shame of losing three times in a row against Gujarat. Before IPL 2023, two matches were played between Gujarat and Chennai in IPL 2022. Gujarat was successful in that. Now in this season too, Chennai had to lose to Gujarat. (ipl 2023 graeme swann slams chennai super kings batting order against gujarat titans)
