CSK picked the racket first and Moein Ali led them to an impressive start in Powerplay with a 75/1 in 6 overs. However, after that, the roles gradually slowed down and eventually ended with 150/6.

Doni said the team was playing one hit less and it was 10 to 15 minutes short of perfect goal setting.

“What we need to realize is that we are playing low light. Once we lost those fast wickets, Moein had to change his momentum. I feel if one of the hitters hit him, he could have continued his momentum,” Donnie said during a conversation with the announcer.

“The role and responsibility switched slightly as soon as we lost that wicket and that made it really difficult. So fading light with the last four, they’re not really known to hit them. If we put in the effort and lost another little gate in there, we wouldn’t have anything to look forward to” .

Dhoni said how the first six matches were played will be crucial to the end result. “You need to bowl really well after that. If their openers start and if they get too many in the first six, 180 is also not enough. Depending on the equivalent score, the start counts, the first six specials on the really nice wicket. So I definitely feel With 15 short rounds.”

Dhoni, who earlier confirmed that he will return as a player in IPL 2023, paid tribute to several of CSK’s new players including left arm player Mukesh Chaudhry.

“Whatever matches they have had, they have learned a lot from it. One of the biggest examples is Mukesh. He has played all the matches, but what is impressive is to see from the first match to the last match how he has developed, how he can play on death. Still what he will do is Going back and learning from the outings he got. “That’s what we really want from the players,” Donny said.

Several unselected players made their CSK debut during the season including Mukesh, Prashant Solanki, Simarjeet Singh and Matheesa Pathirana (outside).

“Once they have that experience, the important thing from next year as soon as they emerge from the IPL is that they don’t start from scratch again. That’s what we need from the youngsters and most of them took advantage of the opportunity they had,” said Doni.

Overall, Dhoni felt that CSK did a good job on the patches and noted that the franchise is building a team for the future. He advised the young man to continue learning and not to view the IPL as a one-year event to ensure a long and successful career.

“We did well in corrections but the important thing is that we keep doing well as a team. The important thing is that whenever you have a chance, and once you get in, you need to make the most out of it whether you are a bowler or a hitter and keep learning. It’s not A championship for one year. It keeps coming back year after year. So once you keep learning and once you mature, that’s the time to invest and become a big IPL player for the next 10-12 years. That’s what you need from the little ones.
