Who did Dhoni blame for the defeat? Read what the CSK captain actually said
After the defeat to Gujarat, CSK captain MS Dhoni spoke about the need for young players to come forward. Along with that, MS Dhoni also feels that his team could have performed well in both the bowling and batting departments. This was the first match of IPL 2023, in which Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans beat CSK by 5 wickets.
The IPL 2023 season started on Friday (March 31). In the first match, defending champions Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings faced each other. Under the leadership of MS Dhoni, CSK has won four IPL trophies so far. But CSK could not start the 2023 season as expected. Batting first, CSK scored 178 for 7. In reply, Gujarat reached the target in 19.2 overs and for the loss of 5 wickets. Although CSK lost, their opener Rituraj Gaikwad’s performance was commendable. Captain Dhoni also appreciated Rituraj’s batting.
Rituraj scored 92 runs in 50 balls in this match. Dhoni said after the match defeat, “We all knew there was going to be dew there. Rituraj’s performance in the match was amazing. He times the ball well and it’s good to watch him play. His shot selection is also worth watching. I think young players should come forward. I think Rajvardhan Hungergekar has pace and is improving day by day.” Chennai bowlers bowled more no balls in this match. Against this background, the bowlers in the team received advice from Dhoni.
Dhoni added, “If the bowlers are good, the no balls are also under control. So there is a need to work on this. I thought there should be two left-handed batsmen in the team, so I went into the match with them.” (What MS Dhoni said after losing the first match)
