New Delhi: In the second match of IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals defeated Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings by 7 wickets. Former India opening batsman Gautam Gambhir raised questions about the batting order of the Chennai Super Kings in the match.
Gambhir questioned Dhoni’s decision
It may be mentioned that in this match, Mahendra Singh Dhoni fielded Suresh Raina at number four instead of number three. Gautam Gambhir did not understand Dhoni’s decision. Gautam Gambhir has expressed surprise over Dhoni’s decision.
Why is Raina at number four?
Gautam Gambhir said during the IPL commentary, “You know how many years Suresh Raina from Chennai Super Kings has been batting at number three, even though he was dropped to number four instead of number three for batting.”
Gambhir asked this question
Gautam Gambhir further said, “Only Dhoni can tell what is being considered behind sending Moin Ali to number three in place of Suresh Raina.” After this, former Indian wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel had his say while interrupting Gautam Gambhir.
Discussion between serious and terrestrial
Parthiv Patel said, “I don’t think Suresh Raina has played for a long time. At the same time, Moin Ali has been playing against India in the recent T20 and ODI series, so Dhoni is considering sending Moin Ali to number three before Sunish Raina.
Serious attack on Parthiv’s statement
This discussion between Gautam Gambhir and Parthiv Patel is not over here. After this, Gautam Gambhir retorted at Parthiv’s statement, “But you had to send Suresh Raina as soon as the second wicket fell. After this Akash Chopra fell between the two and calmed down the discussion.
Chennai lost the first match
Let me tell you that Chennai’s first wicket fell at 7 in the IPL match against Delhi, then Mahendra Singh Dhoni sent everyone to bat Moin Ali instead of Suresh Raina at number three.
