After losing the match, MS Dhoni slammed the Chennai Super Kings’ batsmen for their performance. "I think the batting needs to get better. These are the best batsmen we have got, it looks like we are batting well, but at times, in different games, they pull off shots that shouldn't be played," said Dhoni in the post-match presentation ceremony. Mumbai Indians will directly play into the finals of the IPL 2019 which will be held on May 12, 2019.
