Dhoni Feels CSK Wasn’t There In IPL 2020 After Loss Against RR

With just a few more matches to go, CSK is already at the bottom of the points table in IPL 2020. They had lost yet another game when they faced RR. This is probably the first time that they are staring at such a situation. Usually, the team always qualifies for the playoffs. However, this time around, not only are they far from qualification, but they are also at the bottom of the table. Dhoni feels his team was never in the tournament this time as he seems to be already giving up. He said:

β€œYou 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.”

No Spark In Youngsters In IPL 2020, Feels Dhoni

CSK is a side that has the highest average when it comes to the age of the players. Most of the members are veterans of the game. In the middle of all this, Dhoni feels none of the youngsters showed their spark and took charge of the team. Moreover, he said:

β€œAlso 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. Maybe going forward we bring them in and they play without pressure.”

Steve Smith Led RR Wins β€˜Strange’ Game Against CSK In IPL 2020

RR bowlers superbly bowled as they restricted CSK for just 126 runs in twenty overs. However, the batsmen were off to a rocky start as RR lost three of their batsmen in the powerplay itself. However, Steve Smith and Jos Butler wove a partnership to win the match for their team. Steve Smith thought of it as a strange win and said:

β€œThe wicket was stopping, not the best for batting. It was a strange game but it is nice to be on the winning side.”
