It is a bit tight now – MS Dhoni

”Got a back spasm. It’s a bit tight right now, hopefully it’ll get better. The bowling was very good and as a complete team we bowled really well. With Tahir getting us those timely wickets,” he said.
We bat deep, so took chances – MS Dhoni
Speaking of the match, he quoted that they have got depth in the batting line-up, which saw the top-order batsmen taking chances. He also spoke on Chris Lynn, who had a good day at the office.
Lynn had a good day but we kept taking wickets from the other end. We bat quite deep, so we have to take the chances. Depending on the opposition, we keep changing our plans. I wanted to go after the bowlers early and it paid off today. Me along with Raina, I think it was a good chase.
All in all, it was a brilliant day at the office for Chennai Super Kings. They comfortably thrashed Kolkata Knight Riders in their own den. Now, they will travel Hyderabad to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad for the first time in the tournament.
