With The ongoing IPL 2020 in Dubai, the luck of team CSK is not that bright , which used to be in every season of IPL. The score of team is just worst day by day. MS Dhoni-led CSK has won the IPL three times since its inception in the year 2008 and it is the second most successful team of the tournament.
Chennai Super Kings won only 3 out of 10 matches in the tournament of IPL 2020 . The chance of CSK entering play-offs is almost nil and the skipper MS Dhoni is getting trolled mercilessly for his and his team’s dismal performance.
The last match that CSK played was against Rajasthan Royals at Sheikh Zayed Stadium and it was won by RR by 7 wickets with 15 balls remaining. Batting first after winning the toss, CSK was able to put up only 125 runs on the board after losing 5 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. Jadeja and Dhoni made a total of 63 runs. However, the target of 126 was achieved by the RR pretty easily with the help of Jos Buttler’s 70 runs for which he played only 48 balls.
When the post -match presentation held , Dhoni asserted the youngsters are responsible for the bad form in the game . He said that young players don’t have the spark. He also talked about making the youngsters play without any pressure in the future.
This controversial comment of Dhoni made CSK fans much furious and they slammed the former skipper , asking why a youngster like Narayan Jagadeesan who made 33 runs in his debut match against Royal Challengers Bangalore didn’t get enough support but Kedar Jadhav got many chances despite the fact that he didn’t perform as per the expectations on many occasions.
The former Indian cricketer Kris Srikkanth is not happy with Dhoni’s statement about youngsters. Srikkanth says that he won’t be accepting what Mahi has said and he doesn’t agree with the latter’s remark for youngsters. Srikkanth calls CSK’s selection process wrong and argues whether Kedar Jadhav or Piyush Chawla has that spark. He further says that N Jagadeesan has shown some spark, however he calls it ridiculous that CSK will now give the youngsters a chance to play when the IPL 2020 has almost come to an end for them.

CSK will be playing their next match on October 23 against Mumbai Indians at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium .
