The Chennai Super Kings team lost in a thrilling encounter on Saturday. In the match played in Sharjah, he had to face defeat in the last over at the hands of Delhi. CSK had to defend 17 runs in the last over against Delhi, but Ravindra Jadeja could not do so and the team lost the match by five wickets. With this defeat, it has become difficult for CSK to reach the playoffs.


After the defeat, Dhoni put his side on the decision of getting the last over from Ravindra Jadeja. Dhoni said that Dwayne Bravo walked out of the ground due to injury, which led to Ravindra Jadeja bowling in the last over. Dhoni said, "Bravo was not fit, he went off the field and did not come back again." I had the option of bowling with Jadeja or Karn Sharma. I chose Jadeja. '


Dhoni gave credit to Shikhar Dhawan for Delhi's victory and said that Shikhar's wicket was very important but we dripped his catch several times. He continued to bat and during this time his strike rate was also good. The wicket in the second innings was also a bit easier. But we cannot take credit from Dhawan. '


Let us know that Delhi needed 17 runs in the last over to win, but Akshar Patel took the match to his name by hitting three sixes in Jadeja's over.
