If the year 2020 has got any worse then we’re seeing another thing as three-time Champions Chennai Super Kings are now placed last in the points table as they suffered their third consecutive loss this season against the Sunrisers Hyderabad side couple of days back. After having problems of players like Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina backing out, the side was hit by a few injuries concerns as Rayudu and Bravo were ruled out for a few games.
The Chennai side had a brilliant start to the IPL season this year as they defeated the defending champions in Abu Dhabi. But ever since that first game, the performance of CSK has taken a downhill. After the likes of Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh who took an indirect dig at MS Dhoni last night. Today it’s Pragyan Ojha who has come out talking about the Chennai side’s performance in this season.
MS Dhoni cannot do everything, says Pragyan Ojha
Pragyan Ojha played a few international games under MS Dhoni, especially in the test arena. There was a time when Dhoni backed Ojha and Ashwin to do the job alone in-home test series in the past. Talking about CSK’s performance Ojha feels since cricket is a team sport, you cannot expect MS Dhoni alone to win the game for them every time.
“In a team game, a single guy cannot do everything. He cannot lead you, score runs consistently so everybody has to contribute.,” Pragyan Ojha said.
He further opined how Chennai Super Kings have not lost early wickets the other day, Kedar Jadhav could’ve played his natural game instead of going for the big heaves. Pragyan Ojha also mentioned about how Dhoni would have played those overs carefully since at that crucial stage CSK couldn’t afford to lose another wicket.
“Had they not lost early wickets in the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad or Kedar Jadhav would have batted the way we wanted him to bat, I don’t think MS Dhoni would have played those Rashid Khan overs carefully because he cannot afford to lose his wicket,” Pragyan Ojha added.
