In the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) on Monday, Chennai Super Kings faced a loss again. Rajasthan Royals defeated CSK by seven wickets by seven wickets. Chennai’s team were able to score 125 runs for five wickets against Rajasthan Royals. After this, Rajasthan won by scoring 126 runs at the loss of three wickets in 17.3.
CSK have only six points from 10 matches and are in danger of not making it to the playoffs for the first time in the IPL. After the match, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) talked about the process. Dhoni said that we have to see if our process is wrong.
The result is a part of the process, but one thing is true that if you pay attention to the process, the pressure of the result will not come in the dressing room. We are trying to solve it. However, former India captain Chris Srikkanth was not satisfied with Dhoni’s reply.
Srikanth explained the reason for CSK’s failure
From the beginning in IPL 2020, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings have not been good. The performance of Dhoni and the team is also very poor. Dhoni’s decisions are also disappointing this season. The team has so far won only 3 out of 10 matches. In such a situation, Srikanth said that one of the major reasons for Chennai’s failure is his lack of influence on young cricketers.
Against Rajasthan Royals, Chennai lost the wickets of Duplecy and Watson quickly. Sam Curran and Ambati Rayudu played some aggressive shots, but they failed to play big innings. When Mahendra Singh Dhoni came to the crease, it was expected that he would change gears, but Chennai team could only score 125 runs. Ravindra Jadeja scored 30 runs off 25 balls.
Putting responsibility of this poor performance on Dhoni, Srikanth said, “I do not agree with Dhoni’s process. You are talking about the process, but the process of team selection is wrong. “Chennai’s biggest problem is that Indian players are not able to bear the pressure. Rayudu won the first match for Chennai against Mumbai Indians, but Kedar Jadhav, Piyush Chawla and Ravindra Jadeja (off the ball) are not doing well.
Srikanth asked- Kedar Jadhav and Piyush Chawla have a spark?
Srikanth told India Today, “Jagadishan … you are saying that there is no spark among young players. Does Kedar Jadhav have a spark? Did Piyush Chawla show spark? This is all very nonsense. I do not agree with Dhoni’s answers.
Srikanth said – Jagadishan showed some spark, but did not give him a chance
Srikanth further said, “You will end the tournament by talking about the process. Jagadishan showed some spark. After this he was not given a chance. On Dhoni feeding Karni Sharma to Piyush Chawla, Srikanth said, “At least Karn Sharma was taking wickets. Deepak Chahar and Josh Hazlewood had given initial success to the team, but no wicket fell after bringing Chawla. I do not agree with Dhoni’s argument that the ball was not flipping.
Although, mathematically, Chennai Super Kings can still make it to the playoffs, but their poor performance so far has proved their entire campaign to be a failure. Now it will have to be seen how Dhoni leads the team in the next matches.
