Too many holes in the ship: Dhoni

 DUBAI, Oct 11: Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni says batting has become his team’s major worry in an IPL campaign thrown haywire by “too many holes in the ship”.

 CSK failed to chase a target of 170 against Royal Challengers Bangalore to go down by 37 runs on Saturday night. This was their fifth loss in seven games.

“Too many holes in the ship and when you try to plug one there is water flowing from another. We need to get our act together,” Dhoni said in the post-match presentation.

“Everything needs to work in the same game to get a result. Once we get a result in our favour it will be slightly different for us,” he hoped.

Dhoni conceded that a lot of deliveries are being left by his side’s batsmen in a format which mostly rewards big shots. “Batting has been bit of a worry and today also it was evident. We need to do something about it. We can’t just keep turning up... it is almost the same thing that is happening maybe the individuals are different,” a disappointed Dhoni said in the post-match presentation. – PTI
