Indian Institute of Technology – Madras shocked its students by putting up a question about MS Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings. In the end semester exam a question was asked on what would they recommend Dhoni in the qualifier match against Mumbai, whether to bat or bowl?
The question, part of the material and energy balances paper went viral on social media since International Cricket Council (ICC) shared it from their official Twitter account. ICC praised IIT Madras for making exams relevant and asked its followers if they could help Dhoni make a decision?
Shout out to Professor Vignesh at @iitmadras for making exams relevant to important, real-life issues!— ICC (@ICC) May 6, 2019
Can anyone help @msdhoni and @ChennaiIPL make a decision before the toss tomorrow? (and show your workings 😜) pic.twitter.com/8fp7rGI5BG
The interesting question was set by professor Vignesh Muthuvijayan and he said that the dew point can be calculated by using a psychrometric chart that students were allowed to use. He also said that the question was not directly applicable to cricket but it was interesting and students were able to answer it. I assume most of them would have gotten it right.
As per as the match is concerned, Chennai Super Kings lost the match by 6 wickets. Mumbai Indians became the first team to reach IPL 2019 finals. Chennai will get another chance to make their way to the finals as they finished second on the points table after the league matches ended.
Chennai Super Kings have already won the Indian Premier League thrice and they are the defending champions this year.
