Chennai Super kings have played 6 matches so far in the tournament and lost 4 matches out of them. Today, they will play against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Chennai Super kings has lost their last match against Kolkata knight Riders from a winning position. In this match, Chennai sent Kedar Jadhav ahead f Ravindra Jadeja and DJ Bravo. Fans have not happy with decision of CSK management. Now their head coach Fleming has revealed that why did they send Kedar Jadhav ahead f Ravindra Jadeja and DJ Bravo.
“At the time, we thought that Kedar could play the spinner well and dominate. We hoped Jadeja (and Bravo) were there to come and finish if needed. But in the end, there was too much work to do and we fell short,” Fleming observed. “We’ve got so much batting resources. Kedar is a late middle to late batter for India. We could have gone a whole lot of different ways. Today Kedar had some balls but that didn’t work out. You always put players in different areas and that’s just when you have so much batting talent to choose from. It’s one of the things we look at, but it’s all in hindsight.”
Further, the ex-New Zealand captain also lamented on his openers being unable to stay unbeaten and see off the chase. “If we could have got one of those players to 75-plus and continued that partnership for another maybe four or five overs, the game might have been a lot different. Kolkata hung in there long enough to put pressure on us and we just couldn’t accelerate. We feel disappointed that we let it slip,” he further said..
