Chennai Super Kings, four times IPL Winner, runner-up five times and made it to the playoffs every time except 2020. That is, IPL is the most frequent team. But in IPL 2022, Chennai Super Kings Back Is. They have lost four matches in a row and have not even come close to winning a single match. No one expected this to happen to Chennai this season. Mahendra Singh Dhoni captained before the start of the tournament left. Ravindra Jadeja appointed new captain , But his tenure started with a defeat and he is yet to win.

After losing four matches, now people are missing IPL 2020. The CSK team then failed to reach the IPL playoffs for the first time. This time also something similar is happening. The team looks very weak in bowling. Doesn’t work even in batting. Deepak’s face injury was complete. In such a situation, CSK fans feel that this could be the worst season of the team so far. Chennai has so far lost to Kolkata Knight Riders, Lucknow Super Giants, Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Usually, CSK has dominated against three of these four teams, but this time the old record did not work either. So why are Chennai Super Kings unable to win?

Deepak’s face injury

Deepak Chahar’s injury has proved to be a nightmare for Chennai Super Kings. Without this bowler there is no edge in his bowling. Neither wickets nor runs stopped in the powerplay. CSK spent Rs 14 crore on tea. Because of this, she could not bet on any other bowler. Now Chahar will also join the team late. In his absence, CSK tried bowlers like Tushar Deshpande and Mukesh Chaudhary but to no avail. Deepak Chahar is the most successful powerplay bowler in IPL since 2018. In such a situation, it seemed difficult to compensate for his shortcomings, but the rest of the bowlers could not impress.

failure of openers

When CSK won the title in IPL 2021, both its openers Faf du Plessis and Rituraj Gaikwad scored tremendous runs. Both were in the top two highest run-getters in the last season. But this time the story has changed. Du Plessis is not part of the team. Gaikwad’s form is not like this. Normally Rituraj Gaikwad could not score in the first three matches, but this time he was drawn till the fourth match. Robin Uthappa has scored in one innings but failed in the remaining two matches as well. Due to lack of runs in the opening, the team is going on the back foot.

poor spin bowling

CSK’s strength at one time was spin bowling. But it’s hard to say this season. The team has only three specialist spinners in Ravindra Jadeja, Mahesh Teekshana and Prashant Solanki. Of these, Jadeja’s record as a bowler in T20 format is not good. He has not even bowled in all the matches of the team for the last few seasons. Same is the story of Moeen Ali. They can also be called part time spinners. Now such weakness will be heavy in spin. Then there are some who are spinners who don’t have much experience. Teekshana’s career has been very short, so Solanki has played only one T20 match.

lazy middle order

CSK’s middle order seems to be deteriorating this time. Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja have failed to score runs fast. Rayudu and Dhoni now play only in IPL. In such a situation, he also lacks match practice. In this way the failure of two big batsmen is pulling the team down. Moeen has been known to be a fast bowler, but he has been sluggish this season as well. Ravindra Jadeja is also seen under the burden of captaincy. The problem is that the team doesn’t have a backup batsman who can fix this problem.
