Chennai Super Kings have secured their seventh win in IPL 2023 and remain at the second position in the points table with 15 points. With the victory in the match against Delhi Capitals, it is almost certain that Chennai will play the playoffs.
In this match, Chennai captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni played a brilliant inning of 20 runs in nine balls and took his team to a good score. After this match, Dhoni said that his job this season of IPL is to come down the order and score fast runs in the end overs.
Former Indian captain Dhoni is batting at number eight for Chennai Super Kings this season. It is believed that this could be his last IPL season. In the match against Delhi too, Dhoni finally came out to bat and scored quick runs to take the team score above 150. He was having trouble while running between the wickets during the match.
In this match, Chennai defeated Delhi by 27 runs. After the team’s victory, Dhoni said on his batting “That’s my job, I told them that’s what I have to do, don’t rush me too much and it’s working. That’s what I need to do, happy to contribute. I felt 166-170 was a good score. But as a batting unit, we can do better. The good thing is that Moeen (Ali) and Jaddu (Jadeja) got a chance to bat.”
“As we approach the final stages of the tournament, it is important that everyone has some balls,” Dhoni said in the post-match conference.
