Chennai slumped to their second defeat of the tournament out of three games as Delhi Capitals pulled off an incredible performance in every single department to outclass the three-times champion in every single department.
After posting 175 with the bat, courtesy of an incredible knock from the youngster Prithvi Shaw and a breezy partnership between Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant. What seemed much better for the Capitals was their bowling. Barring Avesh Khan every single bowler took CSK by the scruff of their neck and dumped them hard on the wasteland.
What pained the Chennai fans even more was the consistent failure of MS Dhoni. After failing in the second game to fire in the right time, he couldnt even fire tonight. Rabada saw him off with a short ball that caught a nick off his bat and was brilliantly pouched by Rishabh Pant.
In fact, the look on his face was not just of dejection but the fact that he was unable to deal with failure anymore. Twitter left no stones unturned to hurt the former Indian captain as his bad form continued. We will look at a few tweets who weren’t happy with MS at all.
Last match it was painful to watch MS Dhoni bat and today it has been painful to watch the whole batting unit.

So, nowadays with Dhoni coming on crease it has become obvious that Chennai will not chase!!!
Why does he win tosses & opt for batting second giving Dew factor reasons & similar nonsense.

Top class bowling performance from @DelhiCapitals👌 wonderful to watch once again a pathetic display of batting from @ChennaiIPL most disappointing aspect is their approach very very questionable dhoni must bat no.3 or 4 he is no more the player who can come & slog last few overs

CSK batting approach needs to change and Dhoni should play at no 4. Its gonna be tough for them if they dont change their batting approach!! Does not see the hunger to chase down the target. #CSKvDC

I like dhoni only behind d stumps and not batting
Dhoni is best captain and wicketkeeper but batting his era has been gone now
