Chennai Super Kings skipper, MS Dhoni was unimpressed with the bowling execution of all-rounder Dwayne Bravo.
Dhoni’s frustration was palpable on his face. However, Chennai was able to win the match by 13 runs against Delhi Daredevils in Pune.
Windies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo had a rare off day at the office, as he conceded 43 runs in his three overs. Meanwhile, it is noticed that MS Dhoni always likes to keep a check on his emotions.
However, Dhoni was irked when Bravo bowled a length slower ball which was smashed for a six by Vijay Shankar.
Chennai bowlers took the beating in the final stages.
One of the reasons that can be guessed for Dhoni’s reaction is the Net Run Rate. Chennai could have won the match by a bigger margin.
However, as they conceded runs in the final stages, they could only manage a 13-run win over Delhi Daredevils.
Moreover, Dwayne Bravo is always known for executing his plans to perfection. But the bowling all-rounder was not able to bowl according to his field in the last match.
Early in the match, Chennai Super Kings was able to put 211 on the board thanks to fine knocks by their opener Shane Watson, middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni.
The Chennai captain scored a fine 51 off just 22 balls to once again give a finishing touch to his side.
It was Dhoni’s third fifty of the season, as he has found his form back. Many believed MS Dhoni power-hitting capabilities were on the wane, but we are witnessing a completely different avatar from the master.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings registered their sixth win of the season, as they got the better off Delhi Daredevils. This win has helped the Chennai franchise in taking back their top spot on the points table.
Chennai Super Kings will next lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders on May 3 at latter’s home ground of the Eden Gardens.
Here is Dhoni’s reaction:
