Abu Dhabi: In this 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020), Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s (MS Dhoni) team Chennai Super Kings started their campaign with a win. Chennai defeated Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets. After the victory, Dhoni said that his team still needs to improve in some departments.
Dhoni said after the victory that, ‘There is a lot of positive aspects but there are some departments that need to be worked on. Especially regarding timing. After playing, there was little movement till the dew hit. In such a situation, if you have wickets left, then you live in profit ‘.
Describing the partnership of Rayudu and Duplessis as important, Dhoni said, “It took time for our bowlers to get the rhythm. Rayudu played an excellent partnership with Faf. Most of our players have retired, so the good thing is that none of our players are injured.

At the same time, Rohit Sharma, captain of the Mumbai Indians team, admitted that his team suffered a loss due to not batting well in the death overs. He said, ‘None of our batsmen could advance the innings like Duplessis and Rayudu. We had scored 86 runs in the first ten overs. Credit goes to the Chennai bowlers who bowled well in the last over.
Rohit said, ‘We need to learn a lesson from this. Just beginning We also wanted to start well. This is important in such a tournament.
