April 14, 2012 4:14pm CST
Pune warriors won the 16th Match of IPL 2012 confortably, they beat CSK by 7 wkts. It was great piece of bowling from Pune in the end which enforce CSK to a low score, from a strong postion for which few player like F du Plessis did well to make runs of 43 so does Jadeja. other batsmen didn’t capitalise it and csk got 156 on the borad to give pune a chase not much diffucult. While cahsing Pune hold the nrevers and thie batsmen didn’t try to be too stupid but scored at decent rate to clinch the match. Two run out of robin utthapa and our dada ganguly made some worry but it was all ryder and in end smith who took the match away from csk. Not so good bowling from CSk thoug take kulesera a bangldeshi bowlers as IPL debut. Ashwin was look pity today so did other bowlers. Trump of raina too not worked for Dhoni. It was match bewteen India’s two most successful Captain Sourav Ganguly versus MS Dhoni. It ws termed as undertaker v/s john cena like in wwe. F du Plessis now in row for orange cap. played well csk lost

i am not a csk fan but i knew a lot of those csk fans and they are extremely mad. a few points from the fans are 1.114/3 at the end of 15 overs with morkel and bravo in the ranks.how many boundaries dhoni hit?none.how many he actually tried hitting for a boundary?none. and they say dhoni should come up the order? 2.with morkel and bravo in the ranks why give the ball to a guy who is playing his first match for your franchise? because you are sure you cant defend 10 runs off the last over even with bollinger so you toss the ball to a newbie and give all bs about grooming and make yomahesh the scapegoat. 3.they wont make it to the semis this time. not my views but some of csk fan's views.

Yes, the match was really something else. I can see that MSD's captaincy seems to be faltering in every game he has played so far - as the captain of the Indian Team as well as that of CSK. It could just be that both the teams he is captaining are going through really rough patches in terms of talent/skills pool available in the teams or it could just be that the fire in MSD's batting is slowly getting extinguished. But, I am really surprised about the fact that MSD's aggression with the bat has not been consistent. He does deliver when he needs to or maybe when he feels like it. I am just not sure why he didn't slam every bowler he faced with his 4's & 6's in that match. I just hope CSK gets better. I still have faith in MSD's leadership. Besides R. Jadeja needs to prove he was an investment worth millions of dollars for CSK... And he has to prove it throughout all the remaining games of the IPL.

It was lack in confidence in the captaincy of DHoni and that is too bad. It was past when he was good and his team both as you said INDIAN Team as well as that of CSK were going good and won the torunaments, but time not always same he is going down and his performance as batsman as well as captain is getting belwo par. many people still belive that Dhoni is lucky and he won all the touranments due to luck and not due to his perfromance or say talent in him. But you can't take credits from him it will always with him that he won world cup for us as well as csk captain won IPL 2 times in a row. Lets wait and watch if DHoni can prove something worthy and he is a good leader. Well hope so.......
