Jos Buttler: [On the team spirit] Everyone’s excited, it’s clear what we need to be in the top 2. [On fatigue] It has been a long tour, and living in the bubble has been challenging. So, it’s important to have time away. I have tried to balance things out by not being in training or watching other games all the time, and taking time off. [On assisting youngsters] As a senior, it is my duty to help out the young guys. As we know, the IPL provides a fantastic learning experience. I encourage them to ask questions from multiple sources. Victory tonight however it comes is advantageous and is our aim. It’ll come only by playing a good brand of cricket tonight.
Indian Premier League 2022 Points Table
CSK have won the toss and they will bat first.
MS Dhoni: Our intention is to give the batters time and allow them to score without pressure. Rajvardhan Hangargekar has the pace but he needs to be given enough time to groom and improve in certain areas. We want to win and give time to players. (On returning next year) Definitely. It’s a simple reason: it will be unfair to not play in Chennai and say thank you. Mumbai is one place, whereas as a team and as an individual, I have got a lot of love and affection.

But it wouldn’t be nice to the CSK fans. And also, hopefully, next year there will be an opportunity where the teams will be traveling so it will be alike thank you to all the different places where we will be playing games at different venues. Whether it will be my last year or not that’s a big question because you know we can’t really predict something two years down the line, but definitely, I’ll be working hard to come back strong next year.
Sanju Samson: Comfortable either way. Hettie has gotten a couple of sessions in the nets. We need to play good cricket and finish the league well.
