In the 15th season of IPL, the troubles of the defending champion Chennai Super Kings are not decreasing. Chennai, who have lost the first two matches, have to face Punjab Kings on Sunday. Before that, one of his players is admitted in the hospital, while the other player is injured.
Jordan was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai on March 26 due to a throat infection. For this reason, he did not play the first two matches of the team. It will take a day or two for them to recover. On the other hand, Milne was injured in the first match against Kolkata Knight Riders. For this reason, did not come to play in the second match against Lucknow Giants.
Young bowlers could not do anything special
Chennai’s pace attack has weakened in the absence of Milne and Jordan after Deepak Chahar. The young players could not do much. Fast bowlers Tushar Deshpande and Mukesh Chaudhary could not do much in the match against Lucknow Super Giants. Tushar and Mukesh both gave 79 runs in 7.3 overs, although in view of the injured players, both these players are sure to get a chance in Sunday’s match against Punjab Kings.
Dhoni handed over the captaincy to Jadeja two days before the start of IPL
Two days before the start of IPL, MS Dhoni handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja. But Jadeja has not been able to leave a mark in the captaincy so far. Under his leadership, the team has lost both the matches played so far. In the opening match of IPL 2022, he was defeated by Kolkata Knight Riders. Whereas in the second match against Lucknow Super Giants, the team lost the match by 6 wickets despite scoring 210 runs.
