Four-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have been under-performing this season in the Indian Premier League (IPL). For the first time in the team’s history, the 4-time champions appear to be lacking the spark that propelled them to four consecutive Indian Premier League titles. For the first time, the team is winless after four matches.
Due to CSK’s inconsistent performance with the bat, they are not proficient enough to pick up wickets with the new ball or in the middle overs.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore team is on a good winning streak so far. They have lost only one match to date.
It is a sign of strength for RCB that Maxwell and now Hazlewood are back in the team. As of writing, CSK has no good news to report.
Mistakes Made by CSK in IPL 2022 so Far
Faf du Plessis hasn’t been able to secure a contract extension with the CSK team ahead of the mega auction of 2022, despite being the most consistent run-scorer for the CSK team in the last decade.
The performance of Du Plessis for CSK over the years has been consistent. Chennai missed the trick by not retaining Faf ahead of the auction by not retaining him for the IPL 2019.
Chennai missed the mark by not retaining him ahead of the auction as he made 396 runs in 12 games of IPL 2019. He will be the captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team in the 2022 edition after he was drafted in the 2022 auction by the team.
Due to Chahar’s incapacity, CSK’s playing XI has been severely affected, given that he has been one of their most consistent performers. During the next season, Chahar continued to be an outstanding bowler by picking up 12 wickets in 14 matches. In the absence of Chahar, Chennai’s bowling looks a bit weak due to the lack of quality Indian bowlers.
Despite their youth, youngsters like Tushar Deshpande and Mukesh Choudhary have not yet been able to make a significant impact at the tournament. Jadeja has been a fantastic performer for the CSK team over the years, but he has no experience leading a team in domestic cricket or the IPL.
Jadeja has so far looked clueless in crunch moments and has been seen fielding along the boundary ropes, while former captain Dhoni has been seen making all of the decisions inside the field.
After the IPL 2022 opener against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Conway was dropped by Chennai Super Kings. It was announced that Robin Uthappa will open the innings alongside Ruturaj Gaikwad, the veteran opener. However, the move did not reap the benefits for the team.
