DC vs CSK | In the Indian Premier League 2021, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) suffered a defeat against Delhi Capitals for the second time during the league round. Since this defeat, CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is being criticized for his slow batting. Dhoni faced 27 balls and during this time no boundary came from his bat and he scored only 18 runs. After the match, Dhoni defended his slow innings, saying that scoring runs on the pitch was not easy and Delhi Capitals batsmen were also seen facing this difficulty.

Dhoni said after the match, 'We wanted to reach 150. When we lost a few wickets in the beginning, after that in the 15-16th over, we had a good platform. We could not increase the pace of the runs. I think it was a difficult pitch. Had we been able to get closer to 150, it would have been a good score. The pitch slowed down abruptly. You just weren't able to play your shots.

Dhoni further said, 'Delhi batsmen also had to face this difficulty. The tall bowlers were getting movement from the wicket. Despite this, we were able to make the match exciting. It was important not to give too many runs in the first six overs, it was a costly over in the first six overs, but when there are batsmen, these kinds of things happen.
