Chennai Super Kings (CSK), three-time IPL champions, were eliminated from the playoffs this time.
Following the defeat of Bangalore Royal Challengers Chennai yesterday, the chances of a play-off were somewhat high considering the results of the other teams. But in the match that followed, Rajasthan won the toss and elected to field. Thus, the play-off dream of the Chennai team was shattered. The fans were disappointed as the Chennai team did not go to the play-off round for the first time.
Sakshi, the wife of CSK captain Dhoni, has posted an Instagram page to offer her condolences to CSK fans following the defeat.
In it, ‘It’s just a game … Some matches can be won, some matches can be lost, no one wants to lose, but not everyone can be a winner. True soldiers are born to fight. Emotionally, they will always be the Super Kings in our hearts and minds. CSK shared this post of Sakshi on its Twitter page.
