Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals, Indian Premier League 2020 Match 37

Srikkanth, who was the brand ambassador of the Super Kings franchise during the inaugural IPL season, singled out the case of N Jagadeesan as an example of someone who had not been given a fair chance in the team; Jagadeesan has played just one game all season, scoring 33 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. C'mon this is ridiculous, I won't accept this answer today.

Srikanth raging on Dhoni, asked- What spark was seen in Chawla and Jadhav? Now that they are all but out of the tournament, it seems like the fringe players will finally be given a chance. "All this talk of process, and Chennai's tournament itself is over", Srikanth added.

The three-time winners' poor run this season has put a question-mark on the approach and Dhoni, trying to justify it, said that the younger lot has not done enough to force a change, until now.

Dhoni's suggestion of now giving youngsters a chance after the pressure is off further attracted scrutiny from Srikanth. I tried to come out with some intensity in my batting.

"Karn Sharma at least took wickets".

CSK lost their seventh game in IPL 2020. "Dhoni may be a pistha (big shot) and there is no doubt he is great, but I can not agree with him or accept this".

"We have been really consistent over the years with our selection". "Looking at the table, it's fair to say that this team may have run out of juice". "If you're looking at the three-year cycle - we won the first year, lost off the last ball last year, and we always thought that the third year with an ageing squad would be hard". We always thought that the third year will be hard with an ageing group.

"We have some players that we will look at", the former New Zealand captain added.

Fleming said the current slump should not be a bolt from the blue for the side, which has an average age of over 30.

Buttler got together with captain Steve Smith to rebuild the innings first and then take apart the CSK bowling to help his team to a comfortable win.

RR lost the wickets of Ben Stokes (19), Robin Uthappa (4), and Sanju Samson (0) with just 28 runs on board. "We could not get momentum". Even in Sharjah, it felt that it goes easier towards the evening. While Buttler was the aggressor, Smith played the second fiddle in the partnership.
