MS Dhoni plans to make changes for CSK

MI IPL 2019

MI IPL 2019

Cricket in general is played at a pace below what it needs to be. The idea was simple: teams will play ninety minutes of action-packed cricket in each innings, and the entire affair will be over in three hours. On Wednesday afternoon, the little munchkin was seen having fun with MSD's IPL counterpart, Rohit Sharma. Following his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) side's defeat against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium, Dhoni's heartfelt gesture for an aged lady fan was simply touching.

In what will be a night to remember for the young all-rounder, MI produced a clinical performance to hand CSK their first defeat of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League. "(It's) too slow... I think it's gotta be a collective shift from everybody.

He reasoned that 'the moisture does play a part'. We knew that there was something in the pitch and if we could knock wickets early, things could work. I want to improve my game every day.

But then, is there a way to speed up the process?

Jets unveil new uniforms: Here's how to buy a Jets jersey
While the Jets are clearly pretty excited about their new jerseys , Shazier is not the only one to disapprove of the new jerseys . The stripes and fonts on the numbers have changed some, but for the most part it has been a familiar uniform through the years.

The final two over blitz by Hardik and Pollard ensured Mumbai got a competitive total on the board and gave their bowlers something to defend against a formidable CSK batting line-up.

"Over the last 5-6 overs we came a little bit unstuck". We didn't start off well with the bat but we finished really well. Bravo has a hamstring injury, David Willey is not there, he has his own problems. Even though it has brought in Scott Kuggeleijn, who is yet to feature in the playing XI. He is in Chennai. Mohit Sharma finally broke the partnership by sending nearly unsafe looking Krunal back in the 17th over. Surprisingly, even though Deepak Chahar and Ravindra Jadeja bowled well, they weren't called on to bowl their full quota of overs; Chahar bowled three overs for returns of 1-21, while Jadeja bowled only two overs for figures of 1-10. It's the skills that we are looking at, it doesn't matter if its an Indian or an overseas player. I think as a team we strive on momentum. They (the bowlers) did pretty well till the 15-16 overs. Dhoni and Jadhav scored a total of 54 runs together until Dhoni was dismissed by Hardik. That stand was broken when Dhoni was dismissed for the first time this season; he pulled a Hardik Pandya delivery put picked out Yadav at square-leg. He is a wonderful player. His confidence is up, looks like he has a good thing going with what he is doing at the death.

"We are happy with what we were trying to do, we just executed it poorly". If you keep him out of the game you often go on to win.

As Nita Ambani put it perfectly in her words at the end of the match, "what an all-round performance by him".
