Former India opener Virender Sehwag has categorically stated on Tuesday that Chennai Super Kings’ bowlers need to “buck up” if they don’t want their skipper getting banned in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
CSK bowlers conceded six wides against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday before winning the tie by eight runs. In all, CSK bowled as many as 11 extras against RCB.
“Dhoni was not looking happy because he has mentioned it before that he wants the bowlers to reduce the number of no balls and wides,” Sehwag said on Cricbuzz.
“It shouldn’t go to a stage where Dhoni gets banned and CSK has to take the field without their captain.”
The four-time IPL champions had leaked 18 runs in extras against Lucknow Super Giants earlier and Dhoni had warned them to cut down on extras or be ready to “play under a new captain”.
“Dhoni has said earlier too to restrict wides and no balls. And to bowl six wides, is really disappointing,” Sehwag said.
