RP Singh said that it will be a very tough task for Chennai Super Kings to get into the playoffs if they lose one more game in IPL 2022. He further added that the competition will be fiercer with the addition of two new teams and CSK. will have to improve their game in the upcoming matches.
Chennai Super Kings have been a dominant force in the history of the Indian Premier League. However, they had a dreadful start to IPL 2022 with three straight defeats in their first three matches. The team has entered a new phase as the leadership of the team has been handed over to Ravindra Jadeja. CSK have been outplayed by their opponents on all fronts so far and the team will want to change their fate in the next game.
Former Indian cricketer RP Singh is of the opinion that the road will be very difficult for CSK if they lose one more match and their chances of finishing in the top 4 will be bleak.
“Losing three games shows it’s a tough time for them anyway, but if they lose even one more game then it becomes very difficult to see them in the top 4. Because ‘then you left too much behind with a poor net run rate and less games left to play,’ RP Singh told Cricbuzz.
The new season also added two new participating teams to the roster. Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans are playing their first season this time and so the competition will be more intense. RP Singh said CSK was unable to plan and move the game forward.
“With 10 teams you don’t even know what the calculation will be, how many points a team has to score to get to the top four. Today we didn’t see the CSK that we are used to seeing , whether it’s top order or middle order, other than that partnership, so it doesn’t seem like they’re able to plan and move the game forward,” he said. .
In their last game, CSK reduced their opponents, the Punjab Kings, to 180/8. The target seemed huntable given the role of the dew factor in the second round. However, they suffered a batting meltdown and the team was down to 36/5 in under eight overs. A 62-point stand between Shivam Dube and MS Dhoni helped them reach close to the target, but the team still lost by 54 points.
