The Chennai Super Kings got a 27-run victory over the Delhi Capitals on Wednesday night in the IPL 2023. This was their seventh victory of the season, which strengthened their second spot in the points table. After winning the toss, CSK decided to bat first and posted a target of 167 runs at the loss of eight wickets on a slow surface. While chasing this target, the Delhi Capitals got demolished by 140 runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Although none of the batsmen from CSK could reach the 30-run mark, their middle-order contribution, with DHoni providing them with a strong finish, led the team toward victory.
Many cricketers want him to promote his batting position, but during his post-match presentation interview with Murali Kartik, he opened up about why he decided to bat in the lower order. Dhoni said, "That's what my job is." I told them, "This is what I'm supposed to do. Don't make me run a lot." He further said, "It has been working. Others are doing their job, and I've told them that this is what I need to do. So, I'm happy to contribute to whatever deliveries I'm getting. Accordingly, I'm practicing also. What I may get in the game is what I actually practice, so it helps me perform.
