Dhoni's complaints to the umpire about spidercam in the match of RCB vs CSK

Mahendra Singh Dhoni had a mixed day with the gloves in hand in the IPL 2023 match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, as in the second over of RCB chasing the target, he was late to react to an outside edge from Du Plessis and the ball flew towards the boundary. But he made a strong comeback by taking two scorers in Glenn Maxwell and Pierre-Louis to not only redeem himself but also swing CSK back into the game. When Dhoni was taking Maxwell's catch, he had to change the position of his gloves at the last moment, and after this, he immediately went to the umpire and complained about the positioning of the spidercam. After the victory of CSK, Devon Conway, who was the player of the match, said that things should not come to a point where technology interferes with the game.
He said that "it's nice to have that technology to show different angles of the game, but there comes a point where it can't get too involved and interfere with the game." MS was probably trying to speak to the umpires, saying, "Don't get too close to the action and try to avoid too much of what's going on."
He also said that interference "happened a couple of times where the ball got very close to the spider cam as well as the wires, and that can obviously put a fielder off." I think Faf stepped away a couple of times because the shadows of the spidercam were in his way. "It's obviously a little bit testing for guys."
Concluding his statement, convey said that tonight was a really good pitch to bad and getting those big totals is all about trying to create a good strike rate of around 200 plus.
