With this win, the Chennai team still remains in the race for the playoffs. CSK has won only 4 out of 11 matches so far. In such a situation, they will have to win their remaining 3 matches to keep the playoff hopes alive. After defeating Delhi, when Dhoni was asked about the playoff, he said that my maths is not good. I never liked maths.
Thinking about the net rate doesn’t do anything
After winning the fourth match of the season for the Chennai team, captain Dhoni was asked whether his team still has any hope of reaching the playoffs. On this Mahi said, ‘I have never been a big fan of maths. In school also I was not good at maths. Nothing happens by thinking about NRR (Natural Rate). You should just enjoy IPL. When two other teams are playing, you don’t want to take the pressure, you don’t even want to think.
Only think about the next matches
Dhoni said, ‘I think the only thing to think about right now is what you can do in the next matches. If we reach the playoffs, nothing can be better than this. But if we don’t make it to the playoffs, then the world won’t end here.
