Gautam Gambhir has once again taken a dig at former India captain MS Dhoni by indirectly blaming him for not getting a hundred in the 2011 World Cup final. Gambhir was the top scorer for India in the World Cup 2011 final. But, on 97, he charged down the pitch to Thisara Perera, and was clean bowled playing a rash shot.
Chennai Super Kings once again faltered against Mumbai Indians, this time on the bigger occasion of the Qualifier 1. Despite having the home advantage, Chennai could not stop Mumbai from charging into the final. Their batting was sluggish on a difficult wicket, leaving the bowlers very little to defend.
