“It’s a big positive for the fast bowlers to bowl really well to both of them (Mukesh Chaudhary and Simarjit Singh). Let’s not forget that next season we will have two more fast bowlers and we will have some more fast bowlers. We want to give them enough time to prepare for the IPL,” Dhoni said in the post-match presentation.
“So we have some positives that we will take in next season but the important thing is to try to fill in whatever gaps there are so that there is no leakage.”
The former India captain was happy that many fast bowlers have emerged in the IPL.

“It’s nice to have them. We’ve gone through periods when we never had exceptional bench strength with fast bowlers. Also what happens is fast bowlers, they take their time to mature. If you’re lucky, that’s it. You get someone who can play in all different formats in six months’ time, whether Test cricket, one-dayers or T20s. I think that’s what the IPL is doing.
“It is an opportunity for them and a lot of them become a little bit more daring and a little bit more daring which is important in a format like this. They want to take on the opposition directly and that has been the difference.
“You see some people who are not that type, who are shy initially but as they play more games, they become more and more confident and able to execute their plans better. are.”

He said that whatever the nature of the wicket, anything below 130 was difficult to defend.
“I told the bowlers to show a lot of character, put the opposition under pressure and forget the result. I think both the young fast bowlers bowled really well. As far as his contribution is concerned, I think this kind of play really helps him.
“It’s something they start to believe in themselves. We need that kind of attitude whenever we start out and it is needed in the shorter formats.

Asked what he told his batsmen, Dhoni said, “It was important that when you’re batting under that kind of pressure, it’s the first few deliveries that matter. I told myself If they want to hit the first delivery, go for it. This is your chance to escape.
“If they pass those first few deliveries, they can be themselves. It didn’t work but at the same time the opposition bowled really well and needed a little application from our side. Some of our batsmen got out on good deliveries.
“We really can’t help it, but other than that these are games where you learn a lot, so hopefully they’re learning from every game.”
MI skipper Rohit Sharma said there were tense moments between how the pitch was playing and his team had already lost wickets.
“It was just about staying calm and getting things done. We were a bit calm and finally the job was done,” he said.
“We have played a lot of cricket here. We have pitches like these. Sometimes it’s good to bring bowlers into the game. It has been batting friendly everywhere, it was good to see bounce and swing from both sides which was good to watch.

MI are already out of the race for a play-off berth. On the future of the team, he said, “We are keeping a watch (on the future), we want to win matches and at the same time we try some players. There are options which we still want to try.”
He added that batsman Tilak Verma, who took Mumbai home with an unbeaten 34, may play for India soon.
“He (Tilak) has been brilliant, playing the first year, it is never easy to have such a calm mind. I think he is going to be an all-format player for India very soon. He has technique and flair. And there’s hunger too.”
On fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, Rohit said, ‘He knows what he has to do and what the team expects him to do. He understands, brilliant magic lies ahead. ,
Asked about veteran Kieron Pollard, who didn’t play on Thursday, the skipper said, “He has been a legend, he has come out and said that he is fine with it.”
