After losing yet another contest in IPL 2020, MS Dhoni spoke about not giving many chances to the youngsters and he also talked about how result is the by-product of process.
“There was a bit for the fast bowlers and the reason I brought Jadeja was to see how much it was stopping and it didn’t as much as the first innings. So I went with the fast bowlers. I don’t think the spinners got as much bite. It’s not always supposed to go your way. We have to see if the process was wrong. Result is a by-product of the process, but the fact still remains that if you’re focused on the process then the undue pressure of result doesn’t enter the dressing room. We’re trying to address that. You don’t want to do too much chop and change because after 3-4-5 games you won’t be sure of anything. Insecurity is something you don’t want to prevail in the dressing room. It’s fair enough [the criticism for not playing youngsters], this season we weren’t there. Maybe we didn’t see as much spark from some of our youngsters. Maybe going forward we bring them in and they play without pressure”, MS Dhoni said.
Batting first, Chennai Super Kings couldn’t come up with anything extraordinary and managed only 125 from their 20 overs. The team had 50-odd dot balls which didn’t help them for sure.
In return, Royals had initial collapse when they lost three quick wickets but the team bounced back and Smith-Buttler took the team home. Buttler scored an unbeaten 70 while Smith had 26* and he played a perfect second fiddle for Buttler.
Now, Chennai Super Kings moves to the bottom of the table.
