Mumbai, May 31: Mahendra Singh Dhoni was sarcastic in his criticism of the Chennai Super Kings bowlers as they were knocked out of the IPL after losing the Qualifier 2 to Kings XI Punjab on Friday.

Punjab yet again buried CSK under a mountain of runs, scoring a mammoth 226 for 6. It is third time that Punjab scored more than 200 runs against them.

Dhoni blasts foreign players

"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.

"I think the target was achievable when Raina was going. I think in the middle overs there was some very irresponsible cricket from some of the most experienced international cricketers. When the stakes are high you can't commit mistakes,"

"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.
