Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was unsparing in his criticism after the two-time champions crashed out of the Indian Premier League 2014, singling out his star international cricketers.
Chasing 227 to enter their sixth final, the Super Kings were off to a blazing start, thanks to Suresh Raina's 87 off 25 balls before his run out triggered a collapse.
None of CSK's four overseas batsmen did anything worthwhile in the game that mattered. Faf du Plessis perished in the second ball of the innings for a duck while Dwayne Smith managed only seven, Brendon McCullum scored 11 and David Hussey 1. (Scorecard | Match report)
