The match became an unforgettable one after the three-time champions suffered their 1st-ever 10-wicket drubbing against MI.

During this match, CSK made few changes like the ejection of Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav, Piyush Chawla, and the introduction of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Narayan Jagadeesan and Imran Tahir to the team.

Despite the quick changes, results did not turn around for the Men in Yellow as they slumped to their worst defeat in IPL history. 

Meanwhile, during the post-match presentation, Dhoni spoke on various issues from being hurt to accepting defeat. 

“I feel the boys have done that, they've tried to perform. I think it's important for us to have a clear picture of next year. There are lots of ifs and buts - auction, where the venues will be. The coming three games will be an ideal opportunity to give platforms. See some of the youngsters in preparation for the next year. A few more who are on the bench will get games in the coming three games,” Dhoni said.

“It does hurt. What you need to see is what are the things that are going wrong. Especially this year, it hasn't been our year. Whether you lose by 8 or 10 wickets, it hardly matters, but where we are at this stage of the tournament, it does hurt," Dhoni added.

Further in his conversation, Dhoni asserted that things didn't go quite as CSK’s way throughout the season. “What you need to see is where we actually went wrong, right from the second game. It was more about bowling. Rayudu got injured, the other batsmen were maybe not there 200% and in cricket when you're going through a tough phase, you need a bit of luck. The games we wanted to bat first, we haven't won the toss, and there's no dew and all of a sudden when we bat first there's dew."

“Whenever you're not doing well, there can be a 100 reasons, but one of the main things you ask yourself is whether you've got to the potential you've got no matter the conditions. When you put a good team on paper, have we done enough to back up the stats? And this year we haven't. Cumulatively there have been batting failures. It's part and parcel, you can't always think the result will go your way," Dhoni pointed.

Looking into the playoffs, CSK still has a mathematical chance of qualifying only if other teams don't perform well. Finally speaking on the crushing defeat, Dhoni revealed that the final three games might be an opportunity for the management to do ‘tests’ ahead of the IPL 2021 season. With this the team and the management might undergo a major change.
