Harbhajan Said as Dhoni’s Golden Duck at Number 9 Prompts Retirement Advice

During the 53rd match of IPL 2024 between Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings, something happened that no one had anticipated. When MS Dhoni came to bat at number 9, the entire cricketing world was taken aback. It was the first time in his T20 career that he had come out to bat in such a situation. In this match, players like Michel Santner and Shardul Thakur came out to bat before him. Dhoni’s decision left everyone surprised and angered.

Fans Intrigued by Dhoni’s Unusual Batting Position

When the team needed it the most, Dhoni came out to bat so low, leaving the fans eagerly searching for a glimpse of Dhoni. Even though Dhoni was at number 9, he couldn’t make much difference, and Harshal Patel turned the game with his golden duck. Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh was furious with Dhoni’s decision to bat at number 9 and even advised him to retire from cricket.

Harbhajan Singh told Star Sports, “If MS Dhoni wants to bat at number 9, then he shouldn’t play. It’s better to include a fast bowler in the playing eleven. He makes decisions, disappoints the team by not batting first.” Shardul Thakur came out to bat earlier. Thakur couldn’t hit shots like Dhoni and I don’t understand why Dhoni made this mistake? I’m not prepared to believe that Dhoni was sent to bat at a lower order by anyone else.

Harbhajan Criticizes Dhoni’s Batting Decision

Former Indian spinner said, “CSK needed to make runs quickly, and Dhoni did that in the previous match. It was surprising that he chose to bat against Punjab Kings in such an important match. If CSK wins, then I will bet. Let people say what they want to say. I want to say what is true.”

CSK Wins Against Punjab Kings

Let me tell you that in this match between Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings, CSK won by 28 runs. The team benefited from this victory in the points table. CSK has once again reached the top 4. The hero of the team’s victory was Ravindra Jadeja, who gave a splendid performance with both bat and ball. He was awarded the Player of the Match for his all-round performance.
