IPL 2019: It was as cute as it gets! CSK skipper MS Dhoni threw a bouquet of flowers at Sakshi who was beside him after the team reached Jaipur for their next encounter. CSK are at the top of the table as we reach the midway stage of the tournament. The defending champions beat KKR by seven wickets at Chepauk. Dhoni seemed tired at the airport where he dozed off on the ground itself as Sakshi too did the same. Sakshi and Ziva have been traveling along with the team and is often seen at venues rooting for CSK. Also Read - IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals Plan to Release Captain Steve Smith Ahead of Auction

Meanwhile, it was an all-around show from CSK that helped them beat a formidable KKR.
“If you look it looks a good wicket to us. But, I don’t think we want to play on wickets like these because it becomes too low-scoring and it becomes slightly difficult for our batters to get going. And also what happens is that it’s slightly more difficult if you’re batting first. As the dew comes in, it becomes slightly easier in the second half,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Dhoni as saying.
Chennai seamer Deepak Chahar, who took three wickets in the match, too expressed displeasure over Chepauk track saying that nobody wants this type of wicket.
“I’m happy I performed well, but obviously we’re looking for a better wicket. Nobody wants this type of wicket. It’s because of the soil and heat and you can’t help it. It’s very hot here and the pitch curators are doing their best job to give us a good track. But, at the end of the day, you can’t help it.”
Chennai will now visit Jaipur to face Rajasthan Royals on April 11.
