The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have gotten off to a bad start in IPL 2022, according to Aakash Chopra, which is even worse than their terrible performance in IPL 2020.

CSK has lost all three of its matches in the current edition of the Indian Premier League. They are now ranked last in the IPL 2022 points table, just ahead of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), who have a couple of games still to play.

Aakash Chopra remarked on the Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) failure to the Punjab Kings (PBKS), which would have been their third loss in a row to begin the tournament. He stated, ”

“It was a crucial game since Chennai had arrived after losing their first two matches, knowing that they needed to start winning now or face the 2020 feeling. They didn’t have such a poor start in 2020, either; to be honest, they had already won one match. In the history of the IPL, Chennai had never lost the first three games, but that has suddenly changed.”

Aakash Chopra Pointed Out Ruturaj Gaikwad Slow Start in IPL:

Ruturaj Gaikwad’s poor form at the start of the tournament, as per Aakash Chopra, has harmed the Chennai Super Kings. Chopra continued, “Ruturaj Gaikwad has had three terrible matches in a row, and this is the third season in a row that he has failed to score runs in the opening three games.”

“If you are not going to score runs in the first three matches of every season, which is when you are playing as an opener, this is a significant problem. That is not acceptable for a club or even a player to progress farther; why would they invest in you if you are not going to score runs?”

CSK will face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their next fixture on April 9 at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.
