After a big win against Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said he is not worried about making the playoffs. At the same time, he said that he only wants to think about one game at a time. Devon Conway (87 from 49 balls) followed by Moeen Ali’s brilliant half-century (3/13) helped Chennai Super Kings win match 55 of IPL 2022 with 91 runs at Delhi Capitals at DY Patil Stadium on Sunday. .

This was CSK’s fourth victory in the current IPL season and with this victory they moved up to eighth in net run rate above KKR. The victory also kept CSK alive in the playoff race, although their chances are dependent on various other results, with them winning their remaining three games.

Dhoni said after the match: “I’m not a big fan of math. Even in school, I wasn’t good at it. Thinking about the net run rate is useless. You just enjoy the IPL.”

He said: “When two other teams are playing, you don’t want to be under pressure and thinking. You just have to think about what to do in the next game. If we make it to the playoffs, that’s great, but even if we can’t do that, it won’t be. World’s End”.

Dhoni, however, admitted that the victory against DC would have been better if we had been winning from the start of the tournament. “This win really helps. It would have been better if we had won earlier. It was a perfect game,” he said.

He said: “Both Simarjit and Mukesh have been slow to mature. They have the potential, the more they play the better they will understand the game. T20 cricket is all about knowing which ball to throw when? CSK will now face Mumbai Indians from the bottom of the ranking on May 12 at Wankhede Stadium.
