Abu Dhabi: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) said after his seventh consecutive defeat in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) that his team needed to look at the process rather than the result and for that it would take them to the next matches. I have to take concrete steps.
The Chennai team came out to bat first against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and could only manage 125 runs after losing five wickets. In response, the Royals achieved this goal by losing three wickets. CSK has only six points from ten matches and is facing a threat of not making it to the playoffs for the first time in the IPL.
Dhoni said after the match, ‘The result is not always favorable to you. We have to see if the process was wrong. The result is the result of this process. The truth is that if you stay focused on the process, then there is no undue pressure on the team about the result. We are trying to deal with it ‘.
Dhoni had completed the quota of Deepak Chahar and Josh Hazlewood in the first nine overs. He said that like the first innings, the spinners were not getting much help in the second innings.
Dhoni said, ‘The fast bowlers were getting some help. So I gave an over (Ravindra) to Jadeja in the middle to see how long the ball stopped. It was not like the first innings, so I got more overs from the fast bowlers. I don’t think spinners were getting much help ‘.
Dhoni said about not making too much change in the team despite consecutive defeats, ‘You don’t want too much change because in three-four-five matches you are not sure about anything. I do not want a sense of insecurity in the team.
Regarding giving less opportunities to the youth, he said, ‘It is right that we did not give that many opportunities (to the youth) this time. It is also possible that we have not shown passion in our youth. We can give them a chance ahead and they can play without any pressure.
