The Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) winning run has finally been broken as the Mumbai Indians (MI) beat them by 37 runs at the Wankhede Stadium here. More than the loss, it was the failure of the CSK batsmen to stay in the hunt while chasing the MI’s score of 170 that made it a dampener of a game. And skipper MS Dhoni did accept that the game didn’t pan out as planned for the Chennai outfit.
“I think quite a few things went wrong for us. We started well, were right on the mark for the first 10-12 overs. Then, a few catches were dropped, a few misfields, the death overs bowling wasn’t great. We don’t have bowlers who hit the deck, it was slightly tough on them,” he admitted.
