Delhi Capitals lost the first qualifier match against Chennai Super Kings and everyone is blaming Rishabh Pant’s decision to hand-over ball to Tom Curran. What are your thoughts whether the bowling priorities should be given to Kagiso Rabada?

    Hell yes. This is where captaincy matters. This is why MSD is still playing even though he has not contributed much with the bat.

    With 19 needed of 8, people wrote CSK off. But you can’t do that when MS Dhoni is still there and DC helped him further with Tom Curran.

    Let’s dive straight to reasons.

    Pace- With weaker reflexes due to age, MSD has not been able to hit bowlers with express pace for boundaries. Rabada’s pace would have made life difficult for MSD.

    Yorkers- Rabada is an excellent yorker machine, someone who can give Bumrah some competition. Tom Curran tried short ball and half volleys with mediocre pace which made life easy for MSD.

    Previous records- Before this match, MS Dhoni had the strike rate of 227 against Tom Curran without getting dismissed. Also, Dhoni’s recent record vs express bowlers has not been good. Rishabh Pant provided what MS Dhoni wanted. They underestimated MS Dhoni just like Murali Vijay did when he handed over Akshar Patel the last over in IPL 2016.

    To be honest, Tom Curran is not a great bowler and his brother Sam Curran is way better than him. He is a British version of Ashok Dinda who would run Dinda academy’s franchise in UK. ( Dinda’s reference is just for fun. Don’t take it to heart if you are his fan. Oh wait! )

    It was clearly lack of experience from Rishabh Pant. This is where experience helps. This is why MS Dhoni is still valuable. This is why he has been roped in to mentor Team India for the T20 World Cup. I would say that handing last over to Tom Curran instead of Rabada was a brain fade moment for Pant, something he would like to forget. Happy learning youngster.

    Hope to see MSD vs Virat Kohli in the final match. What are your thoughts about it?
