“The 183 here gave me…,” MS Dhoni reveals personal connection with Sawai Mansingh Stadium

Rajasthan Royals dominated Chennai Super Kings once again, winning by 32 runs and securing their position at the top of the leaderboard. Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 77 runs off 43 balls, helping the team set a target of 202 runs.

CSK struggled to keep up, with Devon Conway scoring only 8 runs off 16 deliveries. Despite Shivam Dube’s 50 runs off 29 balls, CSK fell short of the target. Rajasthan Royals’ bowlers were exceptional, not giving CSK any room to settle.

This win shows that Rajasthan Royals are a strong team and will aim to continue their winning streak in the future.

In the post match speech, MS Dhoni, the captain of Chennai Super Kings, expressed his thoughts on the match against Rajasthan Royals.

According to Dhoni, the target set by Rajasthan Royals was quite high as they got too many runs in the first six overs, despite the pitch being good for batting. He also acknowledged the good bowling performance of Pathirana, even though the scorecard didn’t reflect it. Dhoni praised Yashasvi Jaiswal for his calculated risks and excellent batting performance, making it difficult for CSK to assess the right lengths.

Dhoni also shared his personal connection with the venue, mentioning that his first ODI hundred in Vizag gave him ten games, but the 183 over here gave him a chance for a year, making the venue close to his heart.

Despite the loss, Dhoni acknowledged the exceptional performance of Rajasthan Royals and their strong position in the IPL.

It (target) was quite a bit above par. The reason was the first six overs, gave too many runs, but at the same time the pitch was best to bat on at that time. Even when they were finishing the edges kept going for boundaries. They got par+ score and we were not able to stop the runs. I felt his (Pathirana) bowling was very good, not that he bowled badly. The scorecard doesn’t reflect how well he bowled. Yashasvi batted really well, important to go after the bowlers, took calculated risks. It was slightly easier against our bowlers because we had to assess the right lengths. Even then Yashasvi batted well at the top end and at the end Jurel batted really well. I think my first ODI hundred in Vizag gave me some 10 games, but the 183 over here gave me the chance for one year, so this venue is close to my heart.
