Chennai Super Kings have already played their two IPL games of this season. They had a good win over the defending champions Mumbai Indians in the first one but they failed to continue the form in the next one. They were defeated by Rajasthan Royals in the fourth IPL 2020 match at Sharjah by 16 runs. Apart from being without the match-winner of the previous season, there were a couple of more things that went wrong for Chennai Super Kings.

Spinning duo

Chennai Super Kings are famous for their core spin strength. But both their spinner failed to make any impact today. Piyush Chawla and Ravindra Jadeja conceded 55 and 40 respectively with no significant success. Chawla managed to scalp the wicket of Robin Uthappa but the damage was already done by Steve Smith and Sanju Samson at the top. Lungi Ngidi, the right-arm fast bowler was doing pretty well till the last over when he was hit for 30 runs off six balls by Jofra Archer and Tom Curran. The CSK management might like to consider Imran Tahir considering his experience and recent form in Caribbean Premier League 2020.

Dhoni’s batting position

With target of 217 onboard, it was never going to be easy for Chennai Super Kings. Moreover, they were without the service of last match-winner Ambati Rayudu. The absence was felt terribly when Sam Curran and Ruturaj Gaikwad were dismissed on the same score in two back-to-back deliveries by Rahul Tewatia. Faf du Plessis was doing his job well yet again in this match but he needed able partner. Dhoni pushed Gaikwad and Kedar Jadhav (22) ahead of him but that probably was not a right call. The situation required an experienced Dhoni to do it for his side. The skipper at the end took time to open up but in the final over he smashed three consecutive maximums. He again proved his mettle and also showed why he should have come ahead of anyone else after two quick dismissals in the middle order.
