Salute pair became a headache for CSK
The opening pair of Murali Vijay and Shane Watson has been a major problem for CSK in the last 3 matches of this tournament. This is the third match, when both these Chennai openers did not give the team any good start. Due to which the CSK team missed chasing the target once again.
There was no improvement in rung in the middle over
In T20 cricket format, middle overs are very important and when your team is chasing a big target of 176 runs, then the run speed needs to be improved and faster. But in front of Delhi, Chennai Super Kings team failed to do this and during the match, they scored runs in the middle overs according to the run of the ball. Alam was that in the end CSK could only score 131-7 runs in 20 overs.
The middle-class performance continues
The lack of Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu in the Chennai Super Kings team is clearly visible. The middle order batsmen of the team, Kedhar Jadhav, Rituraj Gaikwad and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are not able to leave much impression with their bat. This is the reason that the team of Chennai could not achieve success while chasing the target against the team Delhi Capitals.
