Mumbai: MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings are out of the playoffs race after their 5-wicket defeat against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in the 59th match of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Thursday.
Dhoni’s side had a tactical chance of making it to the playoffs by winning seven games in the league stage and hoping that the other teams’ results go in their favour.
However, Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians played spoilsport for CSK by putting the last nail in the coffin with a win.
CSK will next play against Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals. Both GT and RR are fighting for the top two spots in the points table.
