Chennai Super Kings (CSK) got off to a great start with a win over Mumbai Indians in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), but the team has been suffering for two matches in a row since then. CSK has been seen fighting in both the bowling and batting divisions and in this situation, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also being questioned about strategy and batting order. Former cricketer Virender Sehwag Dhoni has given up four of his 10 captaincy after the win against Rajasthan Royals and lost to CSK batsmen after the defeat against Delhi Rajdhani on September 25 (Friday). Veru wrote on Twitter that CSK batsmen should come to play by providing glucose in the next match.
After CSK’s defeat against Delhi Capitals, Biru wrote on Twitter, ‘CSK batsmen are not being kept. You have to bring glucose to bat from the next game. Delhi have scored 155 for three in 20 overs after being invited to bat after losing the toss at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Prithvi Shaw played an innings of 644 runs, Shaw Pant scored 3 unbeaten runs and Shikhar Dhawan scored 35 runs. Speaking of CSK bowlers, none of the bowlers except Sam Quran could impress. Piyush Chawla took two wickets, but also spent runs at an economy rate of 6.20.
The Chennai batsman is not going straight. Glucose Chadwa will not bat in the next match brought by Padag.

In reply, CSK managed 131 for seven in 20 overs. The batting of the CSK batsmen was very slow and it affected the outcome of the match. Shane Watson made 14 off 16 balls, Murali Vijay made 10 off 15 balls, Itu Turaj Gaikwad made 5 off 10 balls. Due to this performance of the top order batsmen, the required run-rate in the last ten overs became so high that other batsmen could not do much under pressure. After this defeat, CSK dropped to fifth place in the points table.
