MS Dhoni admitted that he was the shadow captain in the first two matches and after that it was all Jadeja who had to take the decisions on field. But for an inexperienced Jadeja, things did not go well. His performance dipped both with the bat and the ball and even dropped catches.

“In the first 2 games there was information going in towards Jaddu and after that, I left it to him to decide which angle to bowl and all that. At the end of the season, you don’t want him to feel as if the captaincy was done by someone else and I’m just going for a toss. So it was a gradual transition,” Dhoni said.

The legendary captain, who guided CSK to 4 IPL titles, admitted that Jadeja’s dip in performance was a big reason why he had to step into the captaincy shoes once again.

“Spoon-feeding doesn’t really help captain, on the field you have to take those crucial decisions and you have to take responsibility for those decisions. Once you become the captain, you have to take care of lot many things and that also includes taking care of your own game. With him, his mind was working a lot. What I felt was it had an effect on his game. I would love to have a Jadeja as a bowler, as a batter and a fielder. We were losing a great fielder,” MS Dhoni added.

“I think it was a good score to defend. It’s one of those coincidences where we got off to a good start and forced the bowlers to bowl the areas where we wanted to hit. The kind of target we got was a very good one. The phase that really worked for us was where the spinners were bowling after 6 overs,” said MS Dhoni.

After registering their third win of the season MS Dhoni-led CSK will now take on Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday.
