CSK’s Dhoni Slammed For His Comment ‘Youngsters Lack Spark’, Even Kris Srikkanth Criticised Him


CSK’s Dhoni Slammed For His Comment ‘Youngsters Lack Spark’, Even Kris Srikkanth Criticised Him

The year 2020 is certainly the worst year for Chennai Super Kings as the team which used to be the favourite for winning the IPL in every season is at the bottom of the points table this time. MS Dhoni-led CSK has won the IPL three times since its inception in the year 2008 and it is the second most successful team of the tournament. However in the IPL 2020, CSK has played 10 matches so far out of which it has won only 3 and lost 7. The chance of CSK entering play-offs is almost nil and the skipper MS Dhoni is getting trolled mercilessly for his and his team’s dismal performance.

The last match that CSK played was against Rajasthan Royals at Sheikh Zayed Stadium and it was won by RR by 7 wickets with 15 balls remaining. Batting first after winning the toss, CSK was able to put up only 125 runs on the board after losing 5 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. The top scorer for CSK was Ravindra Jadeja who scored 35 not out and the skipper scored 28 runs. However, the target of 126 was achieved by the RR pretty easily with the help of Jos Buttler’s 70 runs for which he played only 48 balls.

In the post-match presentation, Dhoni held the youngsters responsible as he said that the some of the young players don’t have the spark. He also talked about making the youngsters play without any pressure in the future. The CSK fans were already very annoyed with their team and this comment by Dhoni aggravated them more. As a result, they slammed the captain cool for his comment, asking why a youngster like Narayan Jagadeesan who made 33 runs in his debut match against Royal Challengers Bangalore didn’t get enough support but Kedar Jadhav got many chances despite the fact that he didn’t perform as per the expectations on many occasions.

The former Indian cricketer Kris Srikkanth is also pretty unhappy with Dhoni, especially because of the statement that Dhoni has made. Srikkanth says that he won’t be accepting what Mahi has said and he doesn’t agree with the latter’s remark for youngsters. Srikkanth calls CSK’s selection process wrong and argues whether Kedar Jadhav or Piyush Chawla has that spark. He further says that N Jagadeesan has shown some spark, however he calls it ridiculous that CSK will now give the youngsters a chance to play when the IPL 2020 has almost come to an end for them.

Check out how Twitter reacted over the statement of Dhoni:
















CSK will be playing their next match on October 23 against Mumbai Indians at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium and this will be the first time that the team won’t be able to make it to play-offs.
