Delhi Capitals defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 44 runs in an IPL 2020 match on Friday night. Batting after losing the toss, Delhi gave Chennai a target of 176 runs. In reply, Chennai could only manage 131 runs for 7 wickets. This is Chennai's second consecutive defeat in IPL season-13. This made captain MS Dhoni look downcast, but also promised better performance in the future.
Dhoni said- Our batsmen need to improve their game. Ambati Rayudu was missing. Rayudu scored 71 off 48 balls against Mumbai Indians in the first match. He has missed two matches due to injury. Dhoni hopes that he will be available for the team in the next match. He said - will be balanced after Rayudu's arrival. We will be able to be a bowler and feed.
Dhoni said- did not play well
After the match, Dhoni said, "I don't think it was a good match for us. The wicket was slow. There was no dew. But I think there was a lack of batting. It is a cause for concern. We have seven days It is time for it. We will have to consider the shortcomings in it. After this, we will come into the field with better changes.
Line length and lack of speed
Dhoni expressed displeasure over the performance of medium pacers. Said- Our bowlers' line length and speed were reduced. The spinners have not been able to get into the rhythm. However, they are still bowling well. This needs to be improved.
What did shreyas iyer say
Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer defended the fielders. Said- the situation was not right. I am very happy with my team's performance. Catching is not easy here. The ball is difficult to judge at times due to lighting.
