'It means alot': Mahendra Singh Dhoni on CSK sealing playoffs berth
Dubai : Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings has become the first team in the Indian Premier League to seal the playoffs berth as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in Sharjah. CSK scored a win by six wickets in a low-scoring spectacle.
CSK skipper said that this win means a lot for the time especially after what happened last year.
“It means a lot, because the last time, we said we wanted to come back strong. We are known for that and there was a lot at stake. You won’t always win games and a lot didn’t go our way last time, and it’s important not to make excuses and we have done that this year,” Dhoni said at the post-match presentation.
He credited the victory in the game to the players and said they kept the momentum even when the wicket was not playing as per expectations.
“The boys did well to keep the momentum going, and they’ve taken responsibilities to keep all departments of the game in balance so the players and the support staff get the credit. The bounce of the wicket was different – instead of knee height, it was shin height, and once the batsmen figured out that they have to hit straight, they succeeded,” he added.
