CSK have virtually knocked out of the IPL 2020 with their loss against Rajasthan Royals on Monday. MS Dhoni opened up a can of worms with his statement after CSK slumped to yet another defeat in the IPL 2020. Dhoni mentioned that CSK have not been up to the mark this year but was unhappy with youngsters performance.
Dhoni said that there were few chances that the youngsters got in the match but they failed to show enough spark. “Fair enough, this season we weren’t really there. Also there were few chances to the youngsters. Maybe we didn’t see the kind of spark that they could’ve given us to say okay you know push the experienced guys and make space for them. But what this result has done is give those youngsters whatever is left in our league stages,” he said in the post match interview.
I will not accept his answers today: Kris Srikkanth
Former India cricketer and chief selector Kris Srikkanth tore into the comments from MS Dhoni and questioned him whether Kedar Jadhav has spark or senior bowler Piyush Chawla did so in the match. Srikkanth also took Dhoni’s comment as an excuse and said that he will not accept his answers.
“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.
CSK continue to remain at the bottom of the table with three wins from 10 matches.
