Sanjay Manjrekar reveals MS Dhoni's reaction post IPL final loss
In the same context, commentator Sanjay Manjrekar shed light on Dhoni's reaction following the loss.
CSK suffer heart-breaking 1-run loss
CSK seemed favorites to win the match until the final ball. However, luck didn't favor the southern outfit last night.
Chennai had restricted Mumbai to a paltry total of 149, courtesy Deepak Chahar's 3/26.
In reply, CSK were off to a steady start, but lost the plot in the middle.
With only two runs required, Lasith Malinga dismissed Shardul Thakur to win the title.

Despite having reached the final, Dhoni was pessimistic about their overall season.
He also lamented that while it was a good season, it wasn't great.
