However, Dhoni still feels that they are still not as good as they were in the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League.
Chennai: Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday said though they are performing, they are still not as good as they were in the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), when they won the title.
Chennai Super Kings Thursday beat Kings XI Punjab by 15 runs here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The home team scored 186 for 4, while Kings XI could only manage 171 for 6 in their 20 overs.
"I won't say it is a fortress, I don't think we have performed as well as in the fourth edition of the IPL. We are getting better with every game. We did really well today, Raina batted well with Hussey, the bowling department also overall quite happy, just one tactical error in bringing in Raina," Dhoni said after the match.
"Performance was really great. We had four fast bowlers, in this format if you are doing well, just go through with them, if you hold them for later they could also go for runs."
