Punjab yet again buried CSK under a mountain of runs, scoring a mammoth 226 for six. It is third time that Punjab scored more than 200 runs against CSK
"I had the belief in my bowling that they will let them score more than 200 runs. But we need to give them (Punjab) credit, they batted well," Dhoni said.
Dhoni said they surely had a chance to win after Suresh Raina came up with a stunning knock of 87.
Dhoni also slammed some of the international stars in the team who failed miserably in the chase. "Some of our international stars played irresponsible cricket, we need to look into it," Dhoni added.
"It was something we could have achieved, the reason for that is the way Suresh batted."
"One of the facts is one of our retained players, Dwayne Bravo we lost at the start itself, but we still made the playoffs, we did really well in the tournament," he added.
