Chennai Tremendous Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Monday warned his bowlers to not bowl no-balls and too many wides of their upcoming IPL matches, saying in the event that they accomplish that they should play beneath a brand new captain.

CSK beat Lunckow Tremendous Giants by 12 runs at residence however Dhoni was not amused with the wayward bowling as his facet bowled three no balls and 13 wides, although LSG have been ultimately restricted to 205 for 7 whereas chasing 218.

“They’ll have to bowl no no balls and less wides. We are bowling too many extra deliveries and need to cut them out otherwise they’ll be playing under a new captain,” Dhoni stated bluntly on the post-match presentation.

Dhoni stated he was shocked by the Chepauk pitch which produced plenty of runs on Monday.

“It was a terrific game, high-scoring game. All of us were thinking how the wicket will be. We had that doubt. It was a high-scoring game. Overall I think it was a perfect first game that happened and it was a full house for the first game in 5 or 6 years since we’ve been here.

“I believed it is going to be a lot slower. It was a wicket the place you possibly can rating runs however general it acquired a bit slower. We’ll must see the way it performs over the subsequent six video games at residence however hopefully we will rating right here.” Dhoni said his side’s fast bowling department will also need slight improvement and bowl according to the conditions.

Not a good start for LSG: Rahul

“Even when it is on the flatter facet, pressure batters to hit over the fielders.” Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul said his team did not have the ideal start after winning the toss and inviting CSK in to bat.

“The bowlers stated it was sticky and transferring a bit so there was one thing in it for them however they did not put it in the appropriate areas. When you’ve got high quality batters within the opposition, they are going to make you pay,” Rahul said.

“Once you bowl first on a contemporary wicket, it takes a little bit of time to know what a great tempo and line to bowl on that wicket.

“(Devon) Conway and Ritu (Ruturaj Gaikwad) played some brilliant shots so it’s something for us to learn and get better at. Six overs going for 70-odd is probably what cost us the game in the end, but I can’t pinpoint one thing.” Rahul stated there have been phases within the sport that his facet did not win and let it slip away.

“Kyle Mayers has come in with some real good form. I was watching some games that West Indies played and he was smoking the ball. It’s good to see him come here with the same approach.

“In Lucknow, he hit the ball a mile and he did the identical at present. It is good to see what he is accomplished with the chance. Bish (Ravi Bishnoi) additionally did very properly. It is good to see totally different gamers placing their fingers as much as give us the most effective likelihood to win the sport and that is one thing for us to take ahead within the event.” Rahul said LSG got off to a really good start and were on course initially.

“However we misplaced a couple of wickets and stored urgent on. It isn’t usually that you will get 4 or 5 batsmen caught on the boundary. If a couple of of them had gone over, we’d have been on the successful facet. Generally in T20, these margins do not go your manner.”
