CSK captain MS Dhoni issued a strict warning to his fast bowlers saying if the bowlers don’t get in line right away, he will leave the team’s captaincy.
Dhoni, during the post-match ceremony, said,
“Fast bowling – we need to slightly improve. Need to bowl according to the conditions. What is important is to keep an eye as to what the opposition bowlers are doing.”
“One more thing is they’ll have to bowl no no-balls or extra wides. Or they’ll have to play under a new captain. It will be my second warning and then I’ll be off. The only reason we’ve scored those runs is if the surface is nice.”

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings won over Lucknow Super Giants by 12 runs. Despite the victory, the CSK captain wasn’t pleased because of his fast bowlers. CSK has recovered after losing the season opener.
However, they need to take strict actions to deal with their bowlers’ frequency of giving away extra runs to the opponents. The bowlers conceded 13 wides in the match against LSG at Chepauk. A total of three no-balls were also bowled by Tushar Deshpande. The CSK bowlers have bowled 17 wide balls and 7 no-balls so far.
