MS Dhoni’s reign ended in IPL, Chennai Super Kings out of playoff race for the first time

There are 8 teams participating in the Indian Premier League, but in this tournament, there was a team in which every team’s fan bowed. This team was guaranteed until it reached the playoffs. It was said that there is no competition between teams of 8 but 7 to play in the IPL playoffs because the entry of Chennai Super Kings is confirmed in it. But everything changed in IPL 2020.

The time of MS Dhoni’s team has changed, the results have changed and the record that has changed since 2008 was a medal on the chest of every player of the Chennai Super Kings team. As soon as the Rajasthan Royals beat the Mumbai Indians on Sunday, Chennai Super Kings were eliminated from the IPL playoff race for the first time. Dhoni’s fans are seeing this day in the IPL for the first time.

Know how Chennai Super Kings can no longer make it to the playoffs?
Chennai Super Kings currently have 8 points in the IPL. Now even if she wins her remaining two matches, she will still have 12 points. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are the three teams that have 14 points more than Chennai. Now the remaining teams of Kolkata, Punjab, Rajasthan and SunRajers Hyderabad are going to compete with each other and have more or equal points than Chennai. In such a situation, Chennai is out of the playoff race.

Chennai Superkings perform in every IPL season
The IPL was started in 2008 and Dhoni’s team traveled to the finals in the very first season. However, he had to face defeat in the final to Rajasthan Royals. In 2009, the Chennai team reached the semi-finals. After this, Chennai won their first IPL title in 2010. In 2011 also Dhoni’s team achieved the distinction of becoming champions for the second consecutive time. In 2012, Chennai Superkings was the runner-up and in 2013, they failed to win the final. In 2014, Chennai team was eliminated in the eliminator and in 2015 Chennai Super Kings was once again the runner up. Chennai team was suspended in 2016 and 2017 and with the return in 2018, Chennai won the IPL Trophy for the third time. In 2019, the Chennai team once again reached the final and lost the title match in Mumbai. But this time the journey of Chennai Superkings in 2020 ended in the group stage itself.

IPL 2020: Srikanth, furious with Dhoni’s reply, said – this is all nonsense

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.

IPL 2020: CSK players reach Chennai under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the team will leave for UAE on August 21

Former captain of the Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his teammates of the Chennai Super Kings arrived here on Friday to attend the practice camp before leaving for the UAE for the Indium Premier League (IPL). Apart from Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla and Kedar Jadhav also arrived here for a week-long camp at the MA Chidambaram Stadium starting on Saturday.

An CSK official told PTI, “Of the 16 Indian players in the team, 13 or 14 players, including Dhoni, will be part of the camp. These players are arriving here after conducting a test of Kovid-19, so their next test will be 72 hours before they leave for UAE on August 21. ”The IPL three-time champion team took pictures of Dhoni and other players reaching Chennai. Shared on social media page. Other players including Suresh Raina have also shared pictures of reaching Chennai on their social media accounts. Sakshi Dhoni, wife of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has also commented on Raina’s post. He wrote, United.

Dhoni has not played competitive cricket since the Indian team lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals of the ODI World Cup in July last year. The CSK official said that almost all players, except all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, are expected to attend the camp. Jadeja will not attend the practice camp due to personal reasons and will join him at the tournament venue before the team’s departure.

The official said that all the players in Chennai will be investigated for corona twice. If their result in this investigation comes negative then only they will be allowed to go to Dubai. The franchise has picked eight net bowlers from Tamil Nadu. He will also travel to the UAE with the team. CSK had earlier held a practice camp for the IPL starting March 29, but had to be canceled mid-way due to the Kovid-19 epidemic.

Due to the Kovid-19 pandemic, spectators will not be allowed to visit the stadium this time. The camp was planned after the Tamil Nadu government approved the use of the facilities at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. However, Kovid-19 cases in the state have crossed three lakh.

Kapil Dev’s disclosure about Ravi Shastri in front of Suresh Raina

Kapil Dev, who made India the world champion for the first time under his leadership, has made a big disclosure about Team India’s current head coach Ravi Shastri.

According to him, Ravi Shastri did not have talent at all. Kapil made this disclosure during a video chat with all-rounder Suresh Raina. During this, he also took the cricket test of Suresh Raina.

Meaning he asked Raina the same questions related to him. However, Raina could not answer more questions related to himself. Kapil Dev also told that he has spoken to someone for the first time on video in this way.

Kapil Dev started the conversation with Yo-Yo Test. He asked Suresh Raina what is this yo-yo test? Kapil asked Raina to ask you some questions like the yo-yo test. Then Kapil asked what is your ODI cap number? Suresh Raina said 157, however, it was wrong. Kapil told that your ODI cap number is 159.

Then he asked how many international centuries have you scored. Raina replied, nine. On this, Kapil said, you are like me, even I do not know my records. You also do not know your records. You have scored a total of 7 international centuries.

Kapil then asked what is the highest score in international cricket? In Test and ODI, tell us separately. Raina said that his highest score in Test is 123. 116 or something in ODIs. Kapil started laughing at this again.

He said, just like me. You don’t know anything The highest score in your test is 120 and 116 runs in ODIs. He asked how old was he when he made his ODI debut. To this Raina replied that he had turned 17, walking in the 18th.

During this time, Kapil Dev asked that he should tell about any cricketer of his time, who had less talent, but he has given great performance. Like we believed that in our time Ravi Shastri. But there was so much passion and passion in them. Yes, the talent was not so much, but the spirit of fighting and the spirit of performing was very much. Ravi Shastri did not have talent, but saw less people performing more passion than that. Any such player in your time? On this, Raina took the names of JP Yadav of Madhya Pradesh and Gyanendra Pandey of Uttar Pradesh.

‘MS Dhoni not allowed to play again against Chennai due to dismissing’, Sreesanth revealed

Paddy Upton, the former Mental Conditioning Coach of the Indian cricket team and coach of the Rajasthan Royals, has revealed in his biography that S. Sreesanth had misbehaved with Rahul Dravid.

He was then ruled out of the next match against Chennai. The former fast bowler of the team responded to Upton saying he never had an argument with Dravid and he respects him.

Sreesanth said that the reason for being dropped from the team against Chennai was something else.

Sreesanth said, “I can never insult a player like Rahul Dravid. He is the best captain. I was angry because I was not in the playing eleven against Chennai. I asked about this. I want to play and win against Chennai. I have not yet found out the exact reasons why I was excluded from the team. In the match played in Durban, I bowled Dhoni. After that I was not given a chance to play against Chennai. “

Sreesanth said that team management never told me the reason for this. I do not hate Dhoni or CSK. Just that team’s jersey reminds me of the Australian team. Upton was made the head coach of Rajasthan in 2013.

The same year, Sreesanth was caught on spot-fixing allegations. Sreesanth was arrested on 16 May 2013.

Upton also referred to some incidents in the dressing room in 2013 in his autobiography. He wrote that Sreesanth abused him and then Rahul Dravid forced him out of the playing XI.

The 37-year-old Sreesanth was a member of the team that won the 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 ODI World Cup.

‘Why do you have to arrange marriage for Yuzvendra Chahal’: Suresh Raina question

Suresh Raina, the first Indian to score a century in all three formats of cricket, has been out of the team for the last 2 years.

However, he still hasn’t lost hope of a comeback. They feel that there is a lot of cricket left in them and hence they can be selected in the team again.

The middle-order batsman revealed the secret of his heart during an Instagram chat with Indian cricket team opener Rohit Sharma on Tuesday evening. Rohit also said that he should join Team India.

Rohit told Raina, ‘We have talked many times about including you again in the team. But the selection is not in our hands. Yes, we should always keep working hard. ”

While Rohit and Raina were chatting, during that time Yuvraj Singh and Yuzvendra Chahal also jumped in between. Both were making fun comments in between. Chahal often comments during live sessions of fellow players. He did the same during the live session of Rohit and Raina.

Chahal asked Rohit and Raina for tips for the arranged marriage. Before Rohit and Raina could answer, Yuvraj instructed Chahal. He commented, “Do not vote Yugi.” Raina and Hitman will become cheeky as they beat the wife. ”During this, Suresh Raina asked,“ Why does this chahal want to marry Orange. ”To this, Rohit Sharma said,“ He has been sated. He is going crazy in lockdown. ‘

The two players also recalled their early days of the Indian cricket team during this chat. Rohit said, “When I joined the team in 2007, the atmosphere of the dressing room was like a school at that time.


There were many senior players. I was initially a little scared of Yuvi Paji. I wasn’t too close to him, but everything went well afterward. “To this, Raina said,” Yuvi Paji is very supportive too. “To this, Rohit said,” Yes, he made me feel comfortable on many occasions. ‘

Pathan brothers record, impossible for any player to break

Irfan Pathan has played 29 Tests, 120 ODIs, and 24 T20 Internationals in his career. Yusuf Pathan played 57 ODIs and 22 T20 Internationals in his career.

Irfan Pathan

There have been many occasions in cricket when two brothers on the field have played for the same team. India has joined many brothers on the field. At present, Pandya brothers are brightening their name in Team India.

Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan have also played together for Team India. The Pathan brothers have held such a record, which is now impossible for any player to break.

Irfan Pathan made his international debut in a Test match against Australia in Adelaide in 2003 December. He made his first ODI in a match against Australia in Melbourne in January 2009. He made his T20 International debut in December 2006 against South Africa.

His elder brother Yusuf Pathan, he was never selected in the Test team. However, represented India in ODIs and T20s. He made his international debut in January 2007 in a T20 match against South Africa in Johannesburg. Yousuf started his ODI career in January 2008 with a match against Bangladesh in Dhaka.

Yusuf’s international career was much shorter than Irfan’s. However, he made such a record in a short career, on which no other name can be written. Team India holds the record for winning the first T20 World Cup.

The first T20 World Cup was held in 2007. In its final, India defeated Pakistan by 5 runs. In that match, Irfan Pathan took 3 wickets for 16 runs in 4 overs. Yusuf Pathan also played in that match. He had given 5 runs in an over. Irfan was elected man of the match in the final.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) began in 2008. The Rajasthan Royals became the first champions of the IPL, led by the Australian legend. Rajasthan defeated Chennai Super Kings by 3 wickets in the final.

In that match, Yusuf Pathan took 3 wickets for 22 runs in 4 overs. Apart from this, 56 runs off 39 balls were also played with the help of 3 fours and 4 sixes. Yusuf was voted Man of the Match in that match.

These are both records, which are recorded in the names of the Pathan brothers. That means being selected man of the match in the first T20 World Finals and the first IPL Finals. It can also be called a coincidence. However, it is impossible to break these records of the Pathan brothers, as the first season of both the tournaments is now due to take place.
