On Saturday, fans have witnessed a high intense game between the El Clasico rivalry of IPL. Meanwhile, during the match, CSK’s seamer Deepak Chahar gets a good lesson as he denied the advice of MS Dhoni for using the second slip at the early stage of the 2nd innings.
MS Dhoni-led side Chennai Super Kings after winning the toss set a huge target of 219 in front of Mumbai’s batting lineup. At the batting-prominent wicket of Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, no doubt it was not an impossible target to chase down, however, still, CSK had the benefit of a good score on the board.
Few mistakes from CSK in the second innings and Kieron Pollard’s extraordinary batting make it happen possible to chase a huge target, hence, MI defeated CSK by 4 wickets.
Deepak Chahar Denies MS Dhoni’s Suggestion
Legendary Indian cricketer MS Dhoni’s advice to young cricketers has made difference in match results many times. Even young cricketers really like to have some valuable suggestion from the veteran wicket-keeper batsman. It is more often to see MS Dhoni guiding his bowlers and fielders from behind the wicket. And many times fans have witnessed the players getting positive results after Thala’s suggestion.
On Saturday, during the game against Mumbai Indians, which ended up in a loss for CSK, Deepak Chahar must have regretted his decision not to obey skipper MS Dhoni’s advice. Actually, before the start of the 3rd over of the second inning, Dhoni asked Deepak Chahar to use the 2nd slip, however, he immediately denied it. Thereafter on the very first ball of the same over, Chahar bowled an outswinger to Rohit Sharma, Mumbai skipper tried to hit it hard, but the ball took an edge and gone towards the second slip.
As soon as the ball flew through the 2nd slip, Deepak immediately covers his face with his hands to feel contrite about it. It is worth mentioning that Deepak Chahar didn’t pick a single wicket in the match and must have regret about the incident.
