Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni’s performance against Kolkata Knight Riders would not have convinced his fans.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the captain of Chennai Super Kings since 2008.
The fans of Mahendra Singh Dhoni have been waiting for a long time, their Mahi came first in the batting order. The former cricket coach kept on expressing the idea that Dhoni should bat in the top order. In such a situation, when the Chennai Superkings’ second wicket fell in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday, there was no place for the fans to be happy to see the footsteps of MS Dhoni on the field. However, by the time Dhoni returned to the pavilion after playing an innings of 17 runs in 8 balls, this happiness had turned into surprise and sorrow. Behind all this are the 10 runs of Dhoni made in this match, who somewhere gave the message that Dhoni’s phase has now gone. Let me tell you what is this matter.
Everyone knows that MS Dhoni has been walking in a bad rhythm with his bat for a long time. In such a situation, when Mahi landed the batting at number four, Chennai had 21 balls left. In such a situation, the stage of aggressive batting was ready for Mahi. In this over of Sunil Narine, Dhoni played his first ball and took a run by playing a shot towards the point. This shot was played under full control. But after this, the next 10 runs that Dhoni scored, Dhoni had no control among the world’s most aggressive batsmen on those shots. He is also on such balls, which Dhoni has been sending out of the field for sixes throughout his career. The same thing was heartbreaking for his fans.
Dhoni’s struggle was like this
The next ball that Dhoni played was a free hit from Sunil Narine’s over. Naren gave this ball right under Dhoni’s bat. Mahi also pushed the bat with full force, but the ball took the edge of the bat and went behind the wicket for three runs towards the Thirdman boundary. This was such a ball on which Dhoni has the ability to hit a six in his sleep. After this, Dhoni tried to pull a short pitch ball in the famous over, but the ball bounced towards midwicket with the edge of the bat. Here Dhoni ran for two runs. After this, on another slow ball in the same over, Dhoni rolled the bat to hit the six towards midwicket. But here too Dhoni’s bat did not support him. This time the ball took the edge of the bat and went out for four runs over the head of Kolkata Knight Riders wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik. In this way, 10 out of the initial 11 runs were scored by Dhoni. This was not the method for which Mahi is known. It is expected that Dhoni will be seen in the old colors in the upcoming matches.
