SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) won their second game of IPL 2020 beating Chennai Super Kings by 7 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday. They have moved to the 4th spot in the points table. On the other hand, Dhoni’s CSK has lost their third game out of the 4 games they played in the IPL 2020 so far and are on the bottom place of the IPL 2020 points table.
SunRisers Hyderabad won the toss and elected to bat first. Batting first, they posted a challenging target of 164 runs losing only 5 wickets in the scheduled 20 overs, thanks to Priyam Garg’s special innings.
Chasing the target, CSK had a very poor start as their opening batsmen returned pavilion too soon and from then on, the series just continued. MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja then played quite well and made a partnership towards the end but it wasn’t enough for CSK to win the match as the target was still so far to touch.
Eventually, Chennai Super Kings lost the match by 7 runs. They ended up on 157-5 in their 20 overs. Chennai Super Kings have registered their consecutive third loss in the IPL 2020.
Chennai Super Kings’ skipper, MS Dhoni has opened up after losing the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
MS Dhoni Opens Up On CSK’s Loss To SRH
“I was not able to middle a lot of deliveries, maybe trying to hit the ball too hard. Looking at the outfield, it was subconscious. I’m alright, the throat starts to get dry in these sort of conditions. Long time back, we may or may not have lost three in a row,” MS Dhoni said.
“We need to get a lot of things right”: MS Dhoni
“We need to get a lot of things right. It is professionalism. We need to take our catches not bowl no-balls. Those are controllable and maybe we are getting too relaxed. We have been a bit too relaxed at times. After the 16th over, we had two good overs but overall we could have been slightly better. Nobody wants to drop catches but at the same at this level, we need to draw a line and take these catches especially when the team hasn’t been doing that outstandingly well,” CSK skipper added.
We, Will, Try to Come Back Strong, Says Dhoni
Further, he added “It is very important to be at your best. There are plenty of positives in this game but we will try to come back strong.”
Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will now face Kings XI Punjab on Sunday (October 4) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
