On March 31, Delhi Capitals notched up their first win in IPL 2024 after beating Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ending their unbeaten streak by 20 runs. Amid this, netizens criticised Ravindra Jadeja for showcasing poor performance while on the other end, MS Dhoni was hitting 4s and 6s to chase a target of 192 runs.
Jadeja trolled csk vs dc

When Dhoni came to the crease, 72 were needed from 23 balls. He was hitting 4s and 6s and it seemed the team will cross the line but Jadeja was not able to provide the support to the former CSK captain. He scored 21 from 17 balls initially and had a strike rate of just over 123. Moreover, Dhoni chose to deny a single to Jadeja on multiple occasions because he took upon himself to score runs however he also couldn't do it.

While Dhoni managed to showcase glimpses of his vintage form, scoring an unbeaten 37 off 16 balls, it wasn't enough to steer CSK to victory. The team fell short by 20 runs, finishing at 171/6 in 20 overs and netizens think it is because of Ravindra Jadeja.

DC's captain, Rishabh Pant, played a crucial role in setting the target with a blistering performance with the bat. His innings, combined with disciplined bowling efforts from the DC bowlers, ensured that CSK's valiant effort led by Dhoni went in vain.
