Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni has admitted that he may have all the chances of making the playoffs this season, but after the Mumbai Indians dropped 10 wickets on Friday, the team should now give opportunities to players who have not played in more matches this season.
“I think it’s important for us to have a clear picture of next year. There are a lot of ‘ifs’ and ‘butts’ – what kind of auction are we looking for, where are the places. The next three games are a great opportunity to provide sites for players who have missed one. “Some of those on the bench will get the game in the next three games,” Dhoni said after the match.
CSK fell short of the MI bowling attack led by Trent Bolt, who pulled Sam Curran’s 52 for 114/9, after which Ishant Kishan and Quinton de Kok ensured the chase without losing a wicket.
Dhoni said the players have not done enough considering the figures they have earned in their careers this season. CSK accidentally started the season by five wickets.
“What you have to see is that we really made a mistake from the second game. It was about bowling and the batting did not return. [Ambati] Rayudu was injured and the other batsman could not miss the match, ”said Dhoni.
“Whenever we do not get off to a good start, it puts pressure on the middle order. When you go through a difficult phase in cricket, you need a little luck that did not happen this year. We wanted to bat first in the games, we did not win the toss, no snow, suddenly we bat first It’s snowing when you do. “
