New Delhi. Chennai Super Kings defeated Delhi Capitals by 27 runs in the 55th match of IPL 2023 played at Chepauk. This was CSK’s 7th win of this season. With this, the Chennai team remains in second place in the points table with 15 points and the team’s entry into the playoffs is almost confirmed. Playing first on Chepauk’s slow and turning track, Chennai scored 167 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. Chennai captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni played some quick shots in the last over and hit 20 runs in just 9 balls at a strike rate of 222. Dhoni hit 1 four and 2 sixes.

Chasing a target of 168 runs, Delhi Capitals were able to score 140 runs at the loss of 8 wickets and lost the match by 27 runs. Dhoni said an interesting thing after winning the match. Regarding his batting, he said, “My role this season is clear that I come down and try to hit big shots on every ball I get. Laughing further, he said that I do not want fellow players to make me run more. I am happy that I am able to contribute with whatever ball I am getting to play. I am preparing with the same thinking in the nets as well.

Delhi’s dream of winning the IPL broke again, then Captain Warner got angry! Said – fifth or sixth chance when….

Could have done better in batting: Dhoni
Apart from this, regarding the team’s victory, Dhoni said, “The ball turned a lot in the second innings. Our spinners used the seam better than the rest of the bowlers. I wanted the bowlers to bowl their best without thinking about the wicket. We can do better as a batting unit. You should avoid playing some shots on such a wicket. The good thing is that Moin Ali and Ravindra Jadeja also got a chance to bat. It’s good that as the season draws to a close, every player has got a chance to play some balls.”
