IPL 2020 | CSK beaten by 10 runs by KKR

CSK lost to Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs in what for a very long time was a one sided match. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni blamed batting failures for CSK’s 10-run defeat against Kolkata in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 clash at Abu Dhabi, UAE, on Wednesday (October 7).

Chasing a target of 168 for victory, CSK were comfortably placed at 99 for 1 after 12 overs but a middle-order collapse changed the course of the game and the Dhoni-led side ended up with 157 for 5 in 20 overs.

Dhoni noted that the CSK lost the match in the second-half of their innings and said that it high time that CSK batsmen should start performing.

“In the middle overs there was a phase where they bowled 2-3 good overs. If we batted better, and didn’t lose 2-3 wickets in a row,. We should’ve been careful in the first 5-6 overs. Curran was really good with the ball, and I think we did well in general with the ball, but the batsmen let the bowlers down today,” Dhoni said at the post-match presentation.

“Rotation of strike was important, but I think there were hardly any boundaries in the final few overs, so we need to be innovative at the end when they are continuously hitting a back of a length. That’s where we need to adapt better with the bat and I don’t think we did that,” he added.
