Chennai Super Kings’ performance at the IPL 2022 auction table was comfortably the worst performance by any team in the auction. They kept picking up the aged players, and unproven materials at this stage with the thought that MS Dhoni could handle any poor bowling attack and produce results as he did in the previous other seasons.
Although Ravindra Jadeja is the official captain of CSK, the squad construction has MS Dhoni written all over it, and it has backfired big time this season.
The South African all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius did nothing wrong in the given opportunities for CSK but the CSK management decided to trust Chris Jordan who was not great either in the game against Punjab Kings. The move rightly backfired when Chris Jordan was smashed for fun in the game against SRH in CSK’s previous game.
CSK brought in Mahesh Theekshana to bolster their poor spin attack but the Sri Lankan couldn’t make an impact in the game versus SRH. He was used as a new ball specialist but SRH batsmen were able to milk him easily and gather risk-free runs against him.
