Dhoni Responds On Batting At No.7, Gambhir Praises Sanju Samson


The fourth match of the IPL 2020 saw action between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah, UAE. Winning the toss, MS Dhoni and company decided to show up with the ball first, where it turned out to be a flop show for them. Bowlers from the Yellow squad just lined up to get hammered by the batters in front, and the opposition posted a massive total of 216 on board. The three-time champions got defeated by 16 runs.

The stunning innings from Steve Smith (69 off 47) and Sanju Samson (74 off 32) were already wreaking havoc on the Yellow Army, and Jofra Archer’s thunderous cameo (27* off 8 ) added to their woes. The last over fetched in 30 runs for the Rajasthan team, courtesy Archer’s massive hitting, and Ngidi’s unfair deliveries. For his brilliant performance, young Samson was awarded the player of the match honour.

Talking about batting at number seven against RR, CSK captain MS Dhoni said, "I haven't batted for a long time and the 14-day quarantine doesn't really help." "I'm trying to get into the tournament slowly and also at the same time, we are trying to do different things like sending Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja up the order," he added.

Keeping this aside, Gambhir called Dhoni as selfish player and praised Sanju Samson.
