Veteran Indian all-rounder, Irfan Pathan has come up with a very cryptic tweet after the Chennai Super Kings (CSK)- SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) game which was played out on Friday. Chennai Super Kings took on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Matchday 14 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020).
SRH won the toss and elected to bat first. They were in a lot of trouble as their top 4 batsmen had departed very early in the first innings. However, Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma stitched a gritty knock together and helped SRH reach a challenging total. Chennai Super Kings seemed out of place throughout their chase and lost the game by 7 runs eventually.
The CSK skipper MS Dhoni seemed to be struggling in the chase and it seemed as if age has just got the better of him now. After the game, Irfan Pathan has come up with a very cryptic tweet.

After this tweet, the fans are bewildered as to who this tweet is meant for. A lot of people are saying that Irfan Pathan has taken a dig at MS Dhoni for his poor performance in the Hyderabad game. It was a heart-wrenching scene to see MS Dhoni struggling to catch hold of his breath in the dying overs of the game. This was a never seen before picture and the fans couldn’t see their Thala struggling so bad.
CSK’s Woes Don’t Seem To Come To An End
Chennai Super Kings have found themselves in a lot of trouble ever since this year’s IPL has been announced. First up, Suresh Raina, one of the pillars of the team, flew back from the UAE, citing personal reasons. Then, the veteran off-spinner, Harbhajan Singh, failed to participate in the tournament due to his mother’s illness.
CSK began the IPL 2020 campaign on a high beating Mumbai Indians in the opening game of the tournament. However, since then, fortune hasn’t favoured them as they have lost three games on the trot and are on the bottom of the IPL 2020 points table.
