IPL 2020: Know the 3 reasons why CSK are at the bottom of the points table

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is immovably attached to the lower part of the points table and are gazing at elimination from the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). CSK only won the game 3 times from their 10 outings so far in the IPL 2020.

Much has been said about CSK's maturing core and how the majority of the group's players are obviously over the hill, yet that has been the situation since their return to the IPL. Indeed, as opposed to mainstream thinking, the long pandemic-upheld break may even have put CSK's privileged few on an equivalent balance with the remainder of the groups in IPL 2020.

Here are 3 significant reasons why CSK are attached to the lower part of the IPL 2020 points table:

1. MS Dhoni hasn’t been able to lead from the front in IPL 2020

MS Dhoni is 39 years of age and hasn't played competitive cricket since the 2019 World Cup. However, he has set such high standards through the span of his famous career that fans and experts anticipated that Dhoni would be at his dangerous best in IPL 2020.

Notwithstanding, the CSK skipper has been a sad remnant of the player he was even as of late as IPL 2019. In which he completed as the group's leading run-getter and won them various matches on their way to the final. Dhoni has been hindered in the middle-overs against spinners, with even his prestigious death overs hitting neglecting to make it known.

MS Dhoni has been IPL 2020's greatest dissatisfaction up until now. But if he figures out how to make something happen in the 4 games that are left in the group stage, CSK could at present draw off the unimaginable.

2. Incorrect team combination for CSK

CSK have failed to choose the correct playing XI for the first time in IPL. It is because of a mix of the absence of form and injuries. A lot of this can be attributed to the withdrawals of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh. They didn't even sign any substitutions. Yet it’s an obvious fact that the group has been rearranged around continually.

In what is profoundly unique of them, CSK has neglected to choose the correct mix even 10 games into the competition, and this has harmed them beyond all doubt.

3. Shift in venue from India to the UAE

At the point when the BCCI initially declared that IPL 2020 would be directed in the UAE; CSK was charged as one of the top choices to lift the prize because of their heavy spin assault. They had even procured Piyush Chawla for heaps of cash in the IPL 2020 auction. They still have quality alternatives, for example, Imran Tahir and Mitchell Santner on the seat.

Notwithstanding, the pitches in the UAE haven't offered as much hold and turn as was at first promoted. Even the Purple Cap outlines are overwhelmed by quick bowlers.

Also, the temperatures in the UAE have never really helped CSK. Even the ever-fit MS Dhoni seen heaving for air before in IPL 2020. Had Dhoni and his men played 7 of their 14 games at Chepauk back in India; their fortunes may have been essentially unique.
