Chennai Super Kings were in a strong position at one stage during their Qualifier 1 match against Delhi Capitals but the slopping fielding helped the rivals to recover from a tricky position. With the help of half-centuries from Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant, the runners-up of the 13th edition reached 172/5 from the allotted 20 overs.
MS Dhoni, the skipper of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were seen in conversation with the on-field umpires on a couple of occasions.
Fans reacted strongly to CSK’s ordinary fielding display and Dhoni’s conversation with the umpires.
Here are some of the tweets:
Meanwhile, CSK lost three consecutive matches before the playoffs but their strong show in the Indian leg and the first few matches of the UAE leg led them to second position in the points table.
