Dhoni said after the unilateral victory of his team, “I think we have corrected small things.” We got the start we needed in batting. Hopefully they will be able to replicate it in the upcoming matches. In the context of Watson’s innings of aggressive batting, Dhoni said that it is not just to be too aggressive. He (Watson) was hitting the ball well enough on the net and you have to repeat it on the pitch. It is a matter of time. Faf plays the anchor for us and plays good shots in the middle overs. He always confuses the bowler with lap shots.

Dhoni said that it was important to stop the Punjab team on a low score. He said that after watching the first three or four matches, I felt that if you stop him on a low score then you can pressure him. All the teams have aggressive batsmen who can destroy the bowling and our bowlers performed well. This is Punjab’s third consecutive loss in four matches and the fourth defeat in five matches, which led the team to drop to the last place and captain Lokesh Rahul looked very disappointed.
