IPL 7: Need 230 since there are no breakthroughs with new ball, says MS Dhoni
Chennai Super Kings skipper stressed on the need of addressing the defeats while stating that they would need to score "230" since the new ball bowlers are not providing with breakthroughs
Ranchi: A livid Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni stressed on the need of addressing the defeats while stating that they would need to score "230" since the new ball bowlers are not providing with breakthroughs.
"I think we need 230 as our new-ball bowlers are not getting wickets with the new ball," Dhoni said at the post-match presentation ceremony. "We have to address the defeats as we have lost a few games very easily," the skipper said in a worried tone.
"The easier thing would be to chase in each and every game. Today I went in and ate up quite a few deliveries. I think 185 was a decent score but under par," the skipper said. Winning captain Darren Sammy now feels that they can only win the matches and hope that the other results go in their favour.
"We have been rising to the challenge, looking to control what we can. Good thing that we bowled first. Credit to Warner and Dhawan. After a few games, you tend to look for ways to improve and Warner has always been better up the order. We can now just hope things go in our favour," Sammy said.
Warner on his part gave a lot of credit to Shikhar Dhawan for supporting him well at the top of the order where he loves to bat.
