We have an amazing fanbase: Moeen Ali
Winning the match, the English all-rounder Moeen Ali shared a few words in the post-match presentation. "Any win at the moment is great for us. To win against a great side gives us a lot of confidence going forward.
I think we got a great score, we missed out on a few at the end, we were probably looking at 210-215, happy to have gotten over the 200 mark.
We knew it would be a good score with the spinners we’ve got. We just stayed in the moment, in the present and got some nice shots in the end," Moeen Ali was said as quoted by Cricbuzz.
"I hurt my ankle a bit so had to change my action a bit, but it was probably for the best. My primary thing is to spin it as much as I can, the wickets are gripping a bit now.
We have an amazing fanbase, playing for CSK is amazing because I didn’t realize how big (the fanbase) was before I came here, but it is a massive, massive franchise and the fanbase is unbelievable," he added.
However, another shocking news for the Chennai fans is that they unfollowed Ravindra Jadeja who was one of the main pillars of the side. The CSK's official account on Instagram has unfollowed Ravindra Jadeja when he gave the leadership responsibilities back to MSD.
