MS Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi, reacted after Chennai Super Kings (CSK) failed to secure a spot in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 playoffs on Sunday (October 25). Sakshi took to social media and posted an elongated heartfelt message claiming that it is just a game and “no one wants to lose but not all can be winners.”
The last-placed side on the points table, CSK failed to make it into the playoffs after Rajasthan Royals defeated Mumbai Indians.
Sakshi took to Instagram and shared a post which read: “It’s just a game.. You win some you lose some!! Years gone by are witness to many enthralling victories and a few agonising defeats! Celebrating one and being heartbroken by the other!! Some reasonable response others not so… Some win, some lose and others miss…It’s just a game!”
“Many preachers and varied reactions! Allow emotions not to beat the very essence of sportsmanship.. It’s just a game! No one wants to lose, but not all can be winners! When struck down, stunned, the walk back from the field seems long.”
“Jubilant sounds and sighs add to the pain, inner strength takes control It’s all just a game!! You were winners then, you are winners now! True warriors are born to fight as they will always be Super Kings in our hearts and in our minds!!” she added.
CSK on Sunday defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by eight wickets at the Dubai International Stadium. Ruturaj Gaikwad played an unbeaten knock of 65 runs, helping his team to chase down a target of 146 runs.
