IPL 2020 |CSK almost out? Lose to Rajasthan Royals

Chennai Super Kings scored 125 in the stipulated 20 overs in the latest IPL 2020 match. When Rajasthan Royals came into bat, they did have some tough moments but Jos Butler (70) not out helped them reach the target in 17.3 overs with seven wickets spare.

Former India captain Kris Srikkanth on Monday (October 19) slammed Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for his “did not see spark in some of our youngsters” comment after the CSK faced a seven-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 clash.

Srikkanth also raised question over Dhoni’s decision to include players like Kedar Jadhav and Piyush Chawla in the playing XI of the squad.

“It’s fair enough [the criticism for not playing youngsters], this season we weren’t there. Maybe we didn’t see as much spark from some of our youngsters. Maybe going forward we bring them in and they play without pressure,” Dhoni had said.

“A guy like Jagadeesan… you’re saying youngsters don’t have spark, does Kedar Jadhav have spark? Did Piyush Chawla show spark? Come on, this is all ridiculous, I will not accept his answers today. By going on and on about the process, CSK’s tournament is going to end. By saying that they will give opportunities from now to youngsters… come on, Jagadeesan showed some spark. At least Karn Sharma was getting wickets even if he was expensive. Piyush Chawla was brought into the attack after the match was done and dusted. Dhoni is a great cricketer, there is no doubt about that but I won’t accept him saying that the ball didn’t grip. I won’t accept that,” Srikkanth added.
