Chennai Super Kings would like to consider the place of captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the batting order ahead of their third match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) against the confident Delhi Capitals on Friday. Before their third match in IPL 2020, they would like to consider the place of captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the batting order.
The defeat against Rajasthan Royals on the Sharjah's batting pitch can be attributed to their spinners' poor performance and a disappointing 20th over, but the batsmen cannot completely absolve themselves, especially Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav, and Captain Dhoni himself. Dhoni came out to bat at number seven.
Dhoni's fans still admire his ability to hit sixes but from a closer perspective, he could not play fast against the fast bowlers, and only when medium-speed bowler Tom Curren came out to bowl, Dhoni could be aggressive. And that too happened in the match when the match itself was over.
A win in the opening match for the Delhi Capitals has boosted their players' confidence significantly, though the possibility of Ravichandran Ashwin being absent due to a shoulder injury may require him to make some changes to his bowling line up.
