We bat very profound until 9 (Mitchell Santner). We could quicken in the last couple of overs, and we needed to get an organization moving around then,” he said.

Remarking on giving Santner a conflict with the Rajasthan Royals (RR), Dhoni stated: “We have a steady XI and there were much less left-handers in the restriction, so we gave Mitch Santner a go. It isn’t that vital to make changes if a bit much. As the competition advances everybody will get more possibilities.”

It’s smarter to continue hitting a similar imprint,” he clarified.
