Abu Dhabi: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) coach Stephen Fleming said that Kedar Jadhav was sent ahead of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo while chasing a target against Kolkata Knight Riders. Gone because he plays spin well. Jadhav scored just 7 runs in 12 balls.
Fleming said in the post-match press conference, ‘We felt that Kedar would play spin well and score runs while Jadeja would work as a finisher, but it didn’t happen and we have to introspect a lot’.
The coach said that his batsmen lost grip on the match as only 14 runs were scored between the 11th to 14th over.
He said, ‘If Shane Watson or Ambati Rayudu were not out then, then it would have been different. We could not score fast and kept the game on hold.
Suresh Raina lacked the team once again but Fleming said that he has a balanced team. He said, ‘We have a lot of batsmen and the team is balanced. I don’t think the extra batsman is going to help.
On the question of not giving bowling to spinner Ravindra Jadeja on a slow wicket, he said, ‘This question is for MS Dhoni. I do not make these decisions. I think this decision must have been taken by looking at the wind and our medium pacers were doing well.
