After a terrific victory over the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Chennai Super Kings are once again on the top of the table. MS Dhoni led army won the game on Sunday by 69 runs and have marked their fourth consecutive victory this IPL 2021. Dhoni hasn’t contributed much with the bat but has managed to lead the team with some valuable instructions at crucial moments.
Dhoni’s Instruction – Need of the Hour
The yellow army won the toss and chose to bat first at the Wankhede stadium and set a solid target of 191/4 with Jadeja’s massive 62* runs in 28 balls. Harshal Patel’s last over was the biggest advantage of the game. Jadeja picked up three important wickets along with a brilliant run out of Daniel Christen in the second innings.
When Jadeja was bowling, captain cool was continuously guiding Jadeja in hindi behind the stumps when Glenn Maxwell and Ab de Villers were batting in the crease. After ABD was dismissed, Harshal Patel came to bat.
Dhoni was joking, “Ab hindi me nahi bol saksta hun’ (can’t speak in hindi anymore) as Harshal knows hindi. It was a brilliant performance by Jadeja which was acknowledged by him.
Ravindra Jadeja About the Game
“No, I do not think so. Enjoyed a lot, when you contribute to your team in a winning match, it means a lot. I have been working a lot on my fitness, skill and everything else. Luckily, it paid off today. It is tough as an all-rounder, you will have to do well in all departments – while training I do not do all the three things (Batting, Bowling, and Field practicing) on the same day.”
“I work on my skills one day and my fitness on the next day. That is how I manage my workload. I was looking to hit hard in the last over. Mahi bhai told me he (Harshal) will be bowling somewhere outside the off-stump and I was ready for that. Luckily, I connected with everything and we managed to reach 191, which was crucial over from our side. I knew I had to score some runs if I do get on strike. Today was not my day (for not getting a catch), but I did get one run-out. I am happy with that.”
Captain MS Dhoni Praises Jadeja and Exclaims Him as a Natural Game Changer
During the presentation ceremony Dhoni said, “He is somebody who can change the game on his own. We have seen that significant change with the bat and in the bowling as well. It is good to give him that extra opportunity. The extra few balls where he can express himself. It is also important that the individual grabs the change when you make a decision like that. He had done that so far.”
