The CSK loss was huge, and this article attempts to analyze the failure of the team in IPL 2019.
Chennai Super Kings had a great IPL 2019, but the game show from their part revealed it to be a one-man show – It’s all about how Dhoni plays! Cricket is never a one-man show, and if a team plays on the strength of its star player, they can say goodbye to winning tournaments. ETV Bharat declares the three loopholes of CSK that made them lose.
If you have been following the IPL News 2019, you will have your reasons for the loss. But, this article brings you the analyses from a top media news site about the reasons why CSK lost.
Things could have been different with the inclusion of three top players. One of them is the opening partnership of CSK, which in the earlier session proved to be excellent, but this year Shane Watson was not in the right nick. It happens, and that team management is the best, who won’t ignore this “It can happen” factor, states ETV Bharat. But that didn’t happen with CSK. The team missed out the pace bowling attack; the team missed out the opening batsman’s right long knock and the biggest miss – a poor middle order.
The three mistakes:
ETV Bharat Sports News covers the most debated topic and brings out three best solutions that could have made the CSK triumph with the IPL trophy this year.
The first stroke – Manoj Tiwari
He led Bengal many times, and he had many good IPL sessions too. Well acquainted with international and T20 format, he could have made the middle order of the CSK much more robust. With great strokes counted from his bat, there is no way that he would have been in the 22 Yard and CSK had higher chances of winning the match where two runs were to be scored out of the last bowl. Leaving all the other matches, when in the final match, Dhoni was left alone by Raina and Rayadu. If Manoj Tiwari would have been in the squad it could have made a real difference – no doubt about that.
Morne Morkel: Better bowling half
The CSK bowling attack was not at par with the winning team. It could have turned in the other way if there was a backup plan with the management of the CSK Team. Morne Morkel was a choice that could have been good for them in all ways. He retired from the international cricket this year and the South African pace bowler was a great choice to strengthen the pace bowling attack. He was not chosen by any of the teams this IPL tournament.
Luke Ronchi – The opening specialist
Pakistan League established this Kiwi Batsman as a strong contender for opening pair, but the confident management of CSK, thinking about the past year’s success in the opening partnership, failed to make a wise judgment. Their opening pair did not click, and none of the batsmen could cross the aggregate of 400 runs. Luke Ronchi could have been the differentiating factor here.
Cricket is all about balancing a team’s strength from top to bottom. The success that much has been gained by the team this year is only due to the might of Dhoni, but as a team, it was the worst show from them. Three choices shown in Cricket News 2019 by ETV, could be used to improve the overall strength of the team in 2020.
