Lastly, he pointed out that the match seemed to be going away from CSK. After Uthappa’s dismissal in the match. Shardul Thakur has promoted up the order but lasted only one ball. While Ambati Rayudu didn’t last for too long.
“Shardul came to bat after Robbie. This was a bizarre decision. Why did he come, I don’t know. But Dhoni is there, he can do that. This thing could have backfired, but it is a different thing that Shardul got out in just one ball. Suddenly when the match seemed to be in your control, the game is on, the things have changed. Rayudu and Moeen Ali came, Rayudu got run out,” Chopra elaborated.
