After succumbing to their seventh loss this season, Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni said in the post-match presentation on being asked about the lack of youngsters in the team that he did not see the spark in them to include in the playing XI and hence seniors were backed. However, the comment from the skipper has not gone down well with a section of fans with many questioning how much worse they could have done in comparison to the seniors in the XI, particularly Kedar Jadhav.

CSK were restricted to 125/5 by Rajasthan Royals at Dubai before RR claimed an easy victory chasing down the total in the 18th over. For CSK, it was a bad to start once again with the likes of Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson departing for single-digit score while Ambati Rayudu enduring a rare failure with the bat, MS Dhoni made 28 but consumed an equal number if deliveries while Jadhav batting at No.7 faced seven deliveries for his four runs. Only Ravindra Jadeja managed to provide some impures to the innings with a 30-ball 35, but that eventually proved little.
