Here is how the picture is winning the internet:
“I think it was one game in which the climax went in our favour. Lot of credit to the guys. This season he (Jadeja) has been fantastic. He has been the only one in our team who has scored in the death overs. He needed somebody else and that would have been good for us. We want to give games to people who haven’t played. Ruturaj has shown the talent that he is. He came in and got positive with Covid. We didn’t have much time to have a look at him. He is one of the talented youngsters going around,” Dhoni said at the presentation.
CSK – who still have a match to go – have had a forgettable season by becoming the first team to get out of the playoffs race and this is also the first time CSK has not finished in the top four.
