MS Dhoni uses his Spinner well: CSK vs GT

After the Super Kings scored 172 runs on a slow pitch at Chepauk, MS Dhoni effectively used the spinners to his advantage. During the Gujarat Titans’ chase, MS Dhoni was closely involved, ensuring he made the right decisions. The Titans were struggling after losing six wickets and reaching a score of 98. The Chennai Super Kings’ spinners bowled their overs quickly, helping them maintain a good over rate.

MS Dhoni Umpire Argument Causes 5-Minute Delay

  • CSK posted 172 on a sluggish pitch at Chepauk, thanks to Ruturaj Gaikwad‘s 60 and Devon Conway’s 40.
  • Gujarat Titans were reduced to 98 for 6, but Rashid Khan and Vijay Shankar added 38 runs in just 3 overs to give them a chance.
  • However, Pathirana broke the partnership and Darshan Nalkande was run-out for 0, as CSK held on for a win.
  • During the match, there was a 5-minute delay in play when MS Dhoni argued with the umpires about whether Matheesha Pathirana was eligible to bowl his second over.
  • Pathirana the CSK fast bowler had taken a 9-minute break after his first over. In the second over umpires said he had not spent enough time on the field to be eligible to bowl again.
  • Then Dhoni argued that Pathirana should be allowed to bowl. This led the match to delay for 5 minutes while the umpires consulted with their colleagues.
  • After the argument, the umpires ruled in favor of Dhoni’s bowler. Pathirana was allowed to bowl his second over.
  • The delay in play swung the momentum in Gujarat’s favor for a brief while, but Pathirana broke the partnership and CSK held on for a win.

“That 5-minute argument with the umpires, he has was unnecessary. All he did was stall and stall the game instead of letting another bowler bowl. He might come to regret that at the end of the match,”
