Only Kedar Jadhav was able to put up a fight against the hosts as he slammed 58 off 54 balls while the rest of the CSK batsmen failed to fire.Dhoni though, blamed the loss on the poor fielding in the first innings and the ordinary death bowling, especially in the last two overs of Mumbai’s innings when Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard smashed 45 runs, including 29 in the final over bowled by Dwayne Bravo.advertisement”I think quite a few things went wrong for us. I think we started off well and 12th-13th over also we were on the mark, but after that there were some drops and mis-fields. The death bowling also didn’t come off. It was slightly tough on them.”We do more one-on-one stuff than team meetings. On a wicket like this, what is important is carefully study which boundaries they could have cut off, and where is the error in execution. Momentum totally depends on where you are at,” MS Dhoni said after the match.Also Read | Mumbai Indians 1st team to win 100 IPL matches, CSK’s winning streak endsAlso Read | Hardik Pandya on playing helicopter shot in front of MS Dhoni: Happy that it came offAlso Read | Hardik Pandya one of MI’s key weapons, I am a massive fan: CSK coach Stephen Fleminglast_img
