MS Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings captain, has again reiterated his view that, "You may win or lose, but it's about getting the process right" after winning the game for his side with his magnificent knock of 70* from just 34 balls in a run-chase of 206 versus the Royal Challengers Bangalore last night. 

Giving an insight into his own performance as well. Dhoni was quoted saying after the game that, "You may win or lose, but it's about getting the process right. Not everybody knows what kind of a game is theirs and what really is their strength. I feel that's what the job of the finisher is. You will score runs with the experience you have got, but if you can help the other batsman with what to play, run quicker between the wickets, tell what the bowler could do with his batting style etc."

"All these things really matter. It's not just about me batting at the death. Sharing the experience with the youngsters or whoever is batting and helping them getting the score is key because tomorrow I may not be batting with him or I may get out, he needs to do the job. Rayudu's batting is very important for us, he keeps the scoreboard moving," 

Dhoni is quite happy with winning momentum for his team but he didn't fail to shower praise on AB de Villiers knock against his team last night. De Villiers scored a 30 ball 68 to help RCB set up a target of 206 for CSK. 

He said, "Not exactly as we had planned, but still the script was good(about the chase). This was a slightly slowish wicket and that's why AB's knock was special. It wasn't an easy wicket, it was not a wicket where you could bat like that credit to him."

"Happy that people are chipping in for us and we are chasing down big totals and at the same time it is a good exposure for some of our death bowlers,"
