Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni got criticized on social media for his bizarre batting approach in the match against RR in IPL 2020. First, he was slammed for not coming up in the batting order in a 217-run chase against Rajasthan Royals (RR).

But even when Dhoni came out to bat with six overs left, he went for singles instead of boundaries. It was confusing for the fans and they were disappointed with his strike-rate. At one stage, he had scored 9 runs off 12 deliveries.

Fans and critics targeted the CSK captain for his approach towards the target after Super Kings lost the match by 16 runs. The top scorer for Chennai was Faf du Plessis. He added 72 runs off 37 deliveries with one four and seven sixes. 

Here are the reactions from the fans:
