The horrendous run of Chennai Super Kings continues this season as they suffered their third consecutive defeat in IPL 2020 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. After losing key players like Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina prior to the season, the CSK side was hit by a few injury concerns in the form of Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo which is why we can say that the side is struggling through a rough patch.
Former India opener and fellow teammate of MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag has taken a dig at the Chennai Super Kings side by calling them ‘Chennai Test Kings’. He further went on how the Chennai side was practising on the field like its some sort of a test match.
We all shouldn’t be surprised as we all know how humourous Virender Sehwag is as we have seen him taking sly digs at players even during his commentary stints in the past.
The Cool CSK Ended Up Being Fools: Virender Sehwag
Virender Sehwag during his show Viru ki Baitak compared The Rock and Gabbar Singh to David Warner and MS Dhoni and then further went on to say how both brain and brawn are required to win any battle. But in the game between CSK and SRH, David Warner’s boys used only brawn to demolish all of CSK’s strategies.
“Yesterday’s match was a face-off between brains and brawn. It was ‘The Rock’ Warner vs ‘Big Brain Gabbar’ Dhoni. They say both brains and brawn are required to win any battle but yesterday, Hyderabad’s warriors using only brawn demolished Chennai’s strategies,” Sehwag said on his web show ‘Viru Ki Baithak’.
Virender Sehwag further spoke how Chennai Super Kings would’ve never expected the likes of Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma to click and eventually perform so well after they sent the top packing very early in the innings. In the end, he also went on to mock how CSK players are ‘cool’ on the field but ended up becoming the fools at the end of the match.
“Chennai’s senior team must have thought that Hyderabad top 4 scorers were gone when these 2 youngsters (Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma) came to bat, ‘What could these kids possibly do?’
But these kids were amazing, they cut Chennai down to size. Chennai, who are known for their cool attitude, turned out to be fools in their own plan. Did Hyderabad win the match or did the Chennai Test Kings think they were at net practise?” added Sehwag.
