IPL 2022 | Hitting first after winning the toss was not a good decision, admits MS Dhoni

Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni has said opting to strike first after winning the draw was not a very good idea against Gujarat Titans after suffering a seven-wicket defeat. Dhoni further added that the team will be looking forward to giving chances to the players on the bench in the upcoming games.

IPL 2022 has been a nightmare for Chennai Super Kings. The defending champions are already out of the title race as they are now out of the playoff race. In their last match, CSK suffered a loss to Gujarat Titans by seven wickets. The team opted to strike first after winning the toss and setting a low goal for the opposition led to their defeat. Reflecting on the loss, MS Dhoni admitted that it was a mistake to prefer to strike first.

“Hitting first wasn’t a very good idea. It was hard to hit the fastest bowlers in the first half, when it came to spinners it was similar,” Dhoni said during the presentation. post-match.

CSK posted a 133/5 total in the opening innings and GT chased the target in the final over. Wriddhiman Saha marked half a century in the match and was crucial in the victory. N Jagadeesan and Matheesha Pathirana starred for CSK in the game. Dhoni said the team is looking forward to testing their bench strength in the remaining matches.

“Sai played well. We could have pushed Shivam up, but we would have beaten the goal to have Jaggi in the team. If it had been earlier in the tournament, it would have been a tactical move to have Shivam “, said Dhoni.

“With Pathirana there is more room for error. He has a good slower one and it will be difficult to hit him if he is riding at a consistent pace. We will be looking to give people chances.”

“We are trying to present a good XI and we will look to do that in the next games as well.”
