It’s uncommon to see Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the kind of situation they find themselves in during IPL 2020. With four losses out of five matches, CSK is in the bottom half of the table and skipper MS Dhoni is also the result. of the team’s bad fortune, as its own numbers also compete with those of the team. His dismissal in the final game, bowled while playing across the line, will certainly interest the crafty Royal Challengers Bangalore leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who will be crucial to his team’s bowling effort when the two sides meet on Saturday.
Chahal has been at the forefront of RCB bowling, with eight wickets from five games at a rate of 7.57. He has two three-wicket swipes in the current tournament and over the years the leggie has claimed 108 wickets from 89 matches against an economy of 7.77.
Dhoni’s grades in IPL, like all formats, are something to dream of for most other players. The CSK superstar has played a total of 196 games, the most of anyone in IPL history, to score 4,534 runs with a strike rate of 137.64, a bit surprising given the impact he has had on the game .
But IPL 2020 hasn’t been nice so far. With just 102 runs from six games and a strike rate of 129.11, Dhoni looks absolutely mortal, and the opposition bowlers are getting closer for now.
