Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake was not happy with CSK captain MS Dhoni’s decision to give the ball to Ravindra Jadeja in the last over against Delhi Capitals (DC). The Olympic medalist is a cricket enthusiast and he is also following Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) lost the match against DC by 5 wickets after Jadeja conceded 3 sixes in the last over with 17 runs needed. Akshar Patel took on Jadeja and cleared the ropes all three times with ease. Centurion Shikhar Dhawan was with him on the other hand and he didn’t have to do anything in the final over.
Blake was not happy with Dhoni going with Jadeja in the final over. He questioned the move and looked upset by the fact that Dwayne Bravo had another over left but he wasn’t brought to the attack.

“Poor poor poor poor choice Mahendra Singh Dhoni. You just can’t bowl Jadeja to the left-hand batsman hmmmm,” Yohan Blake wrote on social media.

Unfortunately, Bravo wasn’t available to bowl because he was not fit and had left the field for treatment.
“Bravo was not fit, he went out and was really not able to come back. That was the reason we had to bowl (Jadeja). The option was between Karn and Jaddu so I went ahead with Jaddu. Maybe not enough,” Dhoni said.
