IPL TOSS BHAVISHYAVANI : After scoring 220 against KKR, MS Dhoni told CSK, “Need To Stay Humble.”

MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) looked poised for a comfortable victory after scoring 220/3 and dismissing five Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batsmen in the Powerplay. But it wasn’t to be, as Andre Russell and Pat Cummins mounted a spectacular counter-attack to almost give KKR the win. CSK, on the other hand, won the match by 18 runs with five deliveries to spare thanks to some strong bowling late in the innings. After the game, MS Dhoni said that the team had to remain humble and that they should not get complacent considering the large total on the scoreboard.

After the game, MS Dhoni said that the team had to remain humble and that they should not get complacent considering the large total on the scoreboard.

“It’s important to be gracious and respectful of your opponents. Big-hitters are a part of the IPL team. We have strong runs on the board, but we need to remain humble, I told them (his teammates) “Dhoni said the following.

“Only choice was Jadeja because the ball was stopping and flipping,” he said of his strategy against Andre Russell, who smashed a 22-ball 54.

The dangerous West Indies all-rounder was finally dismissed by Sam Curran, who bowled a ball down the leg side that Russell attempted to leave but collided with his leg stump.

When asked whether he thought it was a deliberate firing, Dhoni said no.

Though Faf du Plessis was CSK’s best batsman, scoring an unbeaten 95, MS Dhoni will be encouraged by Ruturaj Gaikwad’s return to form after a shaky start to the season.

“Rutu performed admirably in the most recent IPL. We must constantly evaluate his emotional state. He doesn’t seem fazed, and he has the necessary skills to succeed. The last few games of last year, when he wasn’t good, would’ve improved him “Dhoni said the following.

Ruturaj Gaikwad hit his first half-century of the season with 64 runs off 42 deliveries.
