At the toss, Dhoni said that they have made two changes to the playing XI amongst which one is the forced change. CSK skipper said that the star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is not fully fit and overseas batter Devon Conway will replace him in the playing XI. Dhoni asserted:

 “The kind of catches we have dropped are not the ones you can practise. With the ball, we don’t want to bowl big overs, 18 runs is okay but not 24-25 runs. We have a couple of changes: Bravo is not fit, Shivam is out. Conway and Simarjeet Singh come in.”

MS Dhoni also talked about his future as a Chennai Super Kings player and said:

 “You will definitely see me in the yellow jersey [next year], whether this yellow jersey or some other yellow jersey, that’s a different thing.”
