Chennai Super Kings, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, have come under extreme criticism from many after losing four matches in IPL 2020. Team India's former opener Virender Sehwag has also taken a dig at Chennai and batsman Kedar Jadhav. Dhoni's team Chennai were once in a much better position chasing a target of 168 against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Wednesday. Chennai needed just 79 runs in the last ten overs with nine wickets remaining. However, KKR bowled tremendously in the death overs, registering an unexpected victory by 10 runs.
During the chase, captain Dhoni sent Kedar Jadhav before Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja. Questions are being raised on this decision of MSD. At the same time, Dhoni, who batted at number four by promoting himself in the batting order, could not do anything special and got out for 11.
Some players of CSK are considering it government jobs
Sehwag criticized Chennai after the defeat, saying that the team players are treating the franchise as a government job. Sehwag said, "The goal should have been pursued, but the dot balls played by Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja did not help. I think some of the Chennai Super Kings' batsman consider CSK for a government job. Whether you perform or don't, they know they will get their salary anyway".
It has to be mentioned that Chennai pays Jadhav more than Rs 7 crore in the IPL.
Jadhav should have got man of the match
The 41-year-old former cricketer targeted Jadhav for his poor performance with the bat, who scored only 7 runs off 12 balls. In his Facebook series 'Viru Ki Baithak', Sehwag said that Kedar Jadhav is the rightful man of the match. He said that Kedar Jadhav was far from running, he did not even want to run. CSK, which has played eight finals so far, has won only two matches in six matches this season. The Yellow Army next face Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday.
