Chennai Super Kings (CSK) got their fourth victory in the IPL match held on Sunday night. CSK beat Delhi Capitals (DC) by a wide margin of 91 runs. It was also the biggest win of this IPL. After this victory, CSK captain MS Dhoni seemed very happy. After the game, he praised his team’s hitting and also praised two young fast pitchers, Mukesh Chaudhary and Simarjit Singh. He also said that if his team makes it to the playoffs, it will be great. But even if it doesn’t happen, it’s not the end of the world.

After the match, Dhoni said: ‘Both Mukesh and Simarjeet were slow to mature. There is a lot of talent in both bowlers. The more cricket he plays, the better he will get. Bowling success lies in knowing exactly which balls to bowl and which ones to miss. Especially in T20, it matters more what kind of balls not to throw.

Mukesh Chaudhary took two wickets for just 22 runs from three overs in this match. At the same time, Simarjit Singh returned the flag to two batsmen for 27 runs in four overs. Both bowlers are playing better for Chennai. However, these bowlers were not very successful in the early matches.

Dhoni also talked about his fast hitting style. He said: ‘I don’t like to hit the big shots as soon as they come in, but if there are only 12 balls left in the inning then only the big shots help. If you have two balls on the way, scoring a run or two on them won’t do any good. If one of us can score 8 runs on these two balls, then it can come in very handy. Let us tell you that while he was batting fifth in this game, Dhoni started hitting big shots as soon as he arrived. Dhoni played a 21-run, 8-ball inning with no out.

During this, Dhoni also talked about the net execution rate. He said: ‘I’m not a math fanatic. At school I wasn’t good at math either. It makes no sense to think about the net execution rate. You should enjoy IPL. When two teams play, you shouldn’t be under extra pressure thinking about all this. You just have to think about what to do in the next game. If we can make the playoffs, that would be great. If this doesn’t happen, then it’s not the end of the world.
