New Delhi. Hardly anyone would have thought that MS Dhoni's team would be out of IPL 2024 in this manner. When Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won the toss against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), it felt as if half the job was done. After all, there were chances of rain in the match. It also rained. The game even stopped midway. But Chennai Super Kings could not take advantage of these moments. RCB, against whom CSK had an excellent record, was not seen at all in this match. Forget winning, Chennai Super Kings could not even score the required 201 runs for the playoffs and were out of the tournament. This is the third time in 5 years that Chennai Super Kings could not make it to the playoffs.
