Dedicated to her husband and the Chennai Super Kings, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni wrote and posted a heartwarming poem after CSK was eliminated from the group stage of the IPL 2020. For the first time in CSK history, they failed to reach the play-off stages and had to pack up their bags early as Rajasthan Royals defeated Mumbai Indians on Sunday.
CSK stays on the 8th position due to their consecutive run of poor performance with just 4 wins out of the 12 games and Net Run-Rate (NRR) of -0.602. CSK is the second most successful team in Indian Premier League’s history with three titles to their name, falling behind Mumbai Indians who have won it 4 times.
It has been a disappointing season for Chennai as they failed to live up to the expectations in almost all departments of the game this time. CSK also missed the services of two of their experienced players in Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh. In some games, Dhoni's side faced backlash for showing a lack of intent, and the CSK skipper too, on occasions, found himself in the firing line.
