Dhoni told me not to try anything fancy in final over, says Mukesh

CSK pacer Mukesh Choudhary after the match revealed what skipper MS Dhoni told him during the last over against SRH on Sunday.

Notably, Mukesh Choudhary dropped Abhishek Sharma in the powerplay. He, however, made amends with the ball by picking up a four-fer and more importantly his wickets right at the edge of powerplay brought CSK back into the game.

Mukesh Choudhary in the post-match presentation talking about that sixth over said: “A wicket hadn’t fallen yet, so I had to take my chances, I knew I dropped a catch but I had to take a wicket and thankfully that happened.”

Dwayne Bravo didn’t play the match against SRH, on which the pacer said: “There was more responsibility in the powerplay without Bravo because he has so much experience, he keeps advising us. Yesterday, he told me I have to take more responsibility, the team environment is always very supportive.”

SRH needed 38 runs in the last over of the match. Shedding light on the 20th over, Mukesh revealed what MSD told him during those deliveries: “MS Dhoni didn’t tell me anything special about that over, he just told me to bowl stump to stump and not try anything fancy.”
