Even a spinner , Karn Sharma or Tahir wouldn't have given 4 sixes in the last over and would have picked a wicket..come on Dhoni we have enough batting, bring Willey or Tahir for bravo.. #DDvCSK

Last 4 overs, 53 Runs !
Dhoni needs to have a talk with Bravo.
Surely it has to be Ngidi & Bravo. Thakur's overs have to be hidden somewhere between 7-16 since Watson is playing as a Pure Batsman since few games.#DDvCSK

MS DHONI should have gone to Ngidi for that last over. He was brilliant tonight.
Bravo was not at his best. 26 of the last over gave DD some chance of a fight back

Dhoni and his bowling choices are most times bewildering.
Didn't question when it all started with Joginder Sharma.
And now I don't understand why Bravo bowled the last one instead of Deepak or Ngidi. Can't get to question now. #DDvCSK
