CSK: MS Dhoni shares thoughts, disappointed following loss against RCB

In the Indian Premier League season 2022 Match 49, Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 13 runs against the defending champion Chennai Super Kings in.

CSK was stalled between overs 7 and 16 while chasing 174 runs and lost 5 wickets. Devon Conway, the opener, had previously hit 56 runs in 37 balls with six fours and two sixes.

Harshal Patel, who was named Man of the Match, bowled a 4-0-35-3 during the course of the match. Meanwhile, All-Rounder Glenn Maxwell got a bowling lift of 4-0-22-2.

CSK lost their seventh game of the season as a result of the final outcome of the encounter. However, this club still has four games to make up for its mistakes and perform at its best. Some observers, on the other hand, believe that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's club is far from qualifying for the IPL playoffs this season.

In the 2011 IPL, which included ten teams, qualifying for the playoffs required 9 and 8 wins. As a result, qualifying with seven wins is regarded challenging. This season is the first time for the IPL to have ten teams competing after 11 years ago.

MS Dhoni's performance

MS Dhoni, CSK skipper, fired some nasty punches and pushed his team to the edge of elimination. Chennai could only manage a total score of 160/8 in 20 last Wednesday night as a result of this.

According to Dhoni, his team has had a good start to the game. However, the disappointing aspect is related to the stroke's performance.

In 6.3 overs, the Super Kings were able to reach 54 points without suffering a point deduction. Despite this, this squad had to drop wickets and suffered their seventh loss of the season.

"The selection of shots against punches improved towards the finish of the contest. We do, however, lose wickets on a regular basis. We can take a look back at some of the punches thrown at us," Dhoni said

In this way, catching up on points necessitates forethought, whereas the first hit is more instinctive. At the end of the day, whether you're a batter or a bowler, you have to be able to make the proper judgments."

RCB comes on top

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis, on the other side, stated that his team needed this win after suffering three losses in a row. This is what motivates his team to achieve such a large disparity in results.

He claims that the squad he leads has given their best effort. He also lauded his incredible bowling unit's performance.

"I believe getting a score of 165 with outstanding fielding is interesting. In addition, our team has some excellent catches and bowling," he said. His squad, on the other hand, still needed to strengthen their batting position in order to play a better game.

In addition, Harshal Patel, the lead pacer for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, was chosen Man of the Match. He tries to put the slower ball on the wicket in the opening half. Regardless, the ball landed on the bat.

Patel also mentioned that he was focusing on improving his sequencing. He needs to be more aware of the conditions and actions that the batter will take.

Bangalore is fourth in the rankings after their win over CSK.
