Chennai: Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni of Chennai Super Kings blamed himself for missing a stumping of Lasith Malinga whose unbeaten 37 off 18 balls took Mumbai Indians to a three-wicket win in the Champions League T20 tournament, here on Saturday.
"There is no one to be blamed but myself for tonight's defeat. I missed a stumping of Malinga and we then gave him a lot of pace to score. We also gave away a lot of easy boundaries, something we shouldn't have," said Dhoni.
Malinga was on 18 with Mumbai needing another 32 runs in the final three overs when the Sri Lankan jumped out to left-arm spinner Shadab Jakati and missed. Dhoni, however, failed to gather and Malinga did not look back thereafter.
