Up against a struggling Chennai Super Kings, KXIP can finally find a way to build some momentum. CSK, too, have lost their three previous games – and are struggling to find the right combination of players.
CSK captain MS Dhoni was also seen struggling to spend time in the middle, and did not look in best shape in the previous game. In fact he has struggled so much in all matches that he has been a spectator in most matches. The fauxy has learnt that Dhoni has been given a penalty and a hefty fine for breaking the Corona rule and being a spectator at all CSK matches.
Mahi will have to pay the penalty before the next match. The umpire will observe his behavior in today’s match and judge if he is a spectator or not. Dhoni has been spending too much time on the field without doing any substantial things. This put doubt in the organizers mind and hence they decided to give him penalty so that other players don’t behave like spectators.
