IPL fans are wondering which team can make it to the playoffs and which team cannot. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) which was the most consistent team in IPL History has failed miserably in IPL 2020.
The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is almost out of the IPL Playoffs race this year. They have only 6 points in 10 matches and only four games left for them in IPL 2020. CSK Captain MS Dhoni admitted that the IPL 2020 season is almost finished for them.
CSK Coach Stephen Fleming said “ “I think there’s an outside chance that we can possibly get through, but when you’re relying on other results and a change of form for your own team, it’s very hard to be upbeat and positive,”
CSK still can change their fate, it is in their own hands. They still can win all of their remaining matches and reach 7 wins and can make it to the Playoffs but it looks impossible as there are a lot of arrangemnts they will need.
Yesterday, Chennai Super Kings lost their 7th match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Rjatshan ended CSK’s IPL Playoffs race.
MS Dhoni Said “ THERE WAS A BIT FOR THE FAST BOWLERS. THE REASON I BROUGHT ON JADEJA WAS TO SEE HOW MUCH IT’S STOPPING. BUT IT DIDN’T STOP MUCH. IN THE SECOND INNINGS I THINK IT GOT BETTER BECAUSE OUR SPINNERS DIDN’T GET THE SAME BITE. IT’S ABOUT GOING BACK TO THE PROCESS, AND THEN SEE IF THE PROCESS IS WRONG,” DHONI TOLD THE HOST BROADCASTER STAR SPORTS AFTER THE MATCH.
“WE PLAY IN FRONT OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SO THERE IS NOTHING TO HIDE. WE’RE TRYING A FEW THINGS. YOU DON’T WANT TO CHOP AND CHANGE. INSECURITY IS SOMETHING YOU DON’T WANT TO PREVAIL IN THE DRESSING ROOM. FAIR ENOUGH, THIS SEASON WE WEREN’T REALLY THERE. ALSO THE YOUNGSTERS, WE DIDN’T SEE THE SPARK TO PUSH THE GUYS. BUT WHAT THIS RESULT HAS DONE IS GIVE THOSE YOUNGSTERS A CHANCE IN THE REST OF THE TOURNAMENT,” CSK Skipper added.
The bad performance of CSK is not digesting to the fans and experts. They are lashing out at Skipper Dhoni and criticizing his team performance. The former indian captain Kris Srikkanth questioned Dhoni when he gave the statement that the youngsters lacked the Spark.
“I will never accept what Dhoni is saying about this process. This process he keeps talking about is meaningless. You keep talking about process, process… but the process of selection itself is wrong,” Srikkanth said on Star Sports Tamil
“What is Dhoni’s deal? He says Jagadeesan doesn’t have spark, but does ‘scooter’ Jadhav have that spark? This is ridiculous.I don’t understand this rubbish about the process at all. What spark didn’t he see in Jagadeesan? What spark did he see in Jadhav and Piyush Chawla? Karn Sharma at least took wickets. Chawla simply goes through the motions of bowling, coming on when the game is already lost. Dhoni may be a pistha (big shot) and there is no doubt he is great, but I cannot agree with him or accept this,” Srikanth added
CSK Fans are also not happy with the recent team performance in IPL 2020.
Here are the ragging tweets from CSK fans currently getting viral on Twitter.
