Chennai Super Kings faced their biggest ever defeat while defending a target as Mumbai Indians beat them by 10 wickets and completed the chase in 12.2 overs.

Prior to this game, Chennai never lost a match by 10 wickets and Mumbai undid this long-standing statistic. Chennai now stand bottom of the table with just 3 wins in 11 matches and the chances of making it to the playoffs are close to zero now.

In the post match conference, Dhoni made a very interesting comment which is catching the attention of netizens.

“A captain can’t run away. He has to play all the games. The position that we are in currently hurts us. This hasn’t been our year. Things have gone wrong for us from the second game itself. We have to assess our future course of action,” he said.

Dhoni further added that team management is not panicking just yet and this is all a part and parcel of the tournament.
