Its first time in the history of the IPL that one of the best franchise CSK is at the bottom of the points table. The 2nd Week of the IPL 2020 is about to end but CSK is maintaining its bottom position in the points table all thanks to the poor performances of CSK in the initial stages followed by a long break.
That break should act as a relief for a team to come back with more energy & enthusiasm not to maintain its bottom position. CSK will face SRH in their next IPL clash at Dubai on Friday. SRH are a little happier after they posted their first win in the IPL 2020 beating Delhi capitals quite comfortably. CSK are currently having two points scored from three matches with a run-rate of -0.840 keeping them at bottom. They have performed exceptionally well in patches but the overall performance of the team has been disappointing so far.
When talked about CSK’s batsmen Faf Du Plessis have been consistent while Ambati who has performed extremely well in the Opener’s match of the IPL 2020 against Mumbai Indians is out of the match as he is injured. CSK will have to really work hard in terms of its bowling strategy. Sam Curran’s left-arm over seems to be the only consistent commodity while the rest have been good, bad or indifferent.
For SRH, some new players have joined the squad which has proved good for the team. Captain Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson, playing his first match, were all on point with the bat, while Rashid Khan did what he does best with the cricket ball – get wickets. The entire bowling contingent delivered, as Bhuvneshwar Kumar led from the front and all the others followed efficiently.
One thing which will be key for both the team’s good performance & victory is efficiency for both the sides. A team is to be consistent I terms of win need to have its players give out more optimized results. Both the sides would be looking forward for consistency since while IPL 2020 still has a long way to go, a couple of losses more will put both sides in a real tight corner.
