After a continuous loss in the IPL 2020, finally Csk got their third victory against SRH by 20 Runs in this season . Usually Csk Fans will not like to see these types of disappointments from the team like CSK, as they failed to chase the target for 5 matches from their previous 7 games in the first half of the season.But , the same scenario happened before a decade in 2010 , after this victory against SRH it opened the gate for playoff chances for CSK, in this situation everyone is expecting CSK to perform the same as in the year 2010. Every Dhoni fan will remember the epic knock against the team KXIP , while reading the sentence itself we can remember the shout of MSD which was a very rare occasion on the same year CSK lifted their maiden IPL trophy.
Though the scenario has lot of similarities after a decade , there are few setbacks for CSK to repeat this IPL on comparing with 2010.
Missing Home Ground Advantage:
Chennai Super Kings was the only team which reached the playoff in every IPL edition which they played that shows their consistency in this league.But , to repeat this kind of history is not an easy thing for the CSK team , as they dont have their home advantage in this season . In the year 2010, they won 5 games out of 7 in chennai Chepauk. But here in the UAE there are 3 venues for 8 teams. Almost every team reads the pitch and condition very well so they have to come stronger than this match to beat other teams.
Lack of Fielding:
In the year 2010, there were young bloods in the CSK team like M.Vijay,Badrinath,Doug Bollingar and so on all of them were in their prime form with their international experience. But in this year , CSK team were missing the young sensational fielding except jadeja and Faf they are easily losing 10-15 runs in terms of fielding and running between the wickets,
Above all CSK should win the upcoming 6 games against the 6 teams as everyone is desperate to fight for the trophy there is no easy team for them, if they strengthen their middle order and bowling performance like today surely they will grab a chance to get into play -offs.
SIX Opponent Teams for CSK:
Mumbai Indians & Delhi Capitals:
Both Teams are table toppers right now in the IPL 2020 and one more thing they are playing in sharjah which was meant to be high scoring runs. If they win against these two teams , there are some 50% chances for them to settle in the TOP 4. If the table topper lost their game they must be in a situation to get the same spot to get the top 2 spot they have to win their rest of the games. As the next game was against Delhi Capitals, due to the Rishab Pant Unavailability they are struggling to get the team balance, by utilising these opportunities if they strike DC with this bowling attack, it will boost CSK to move forward in this IPL 2020. But against Mumbai Indians , they must show some extraordinary performance from the top-order to upset the defending champions.
Rajasthan Royals & Kolkata Knight Riders
Both these teams are in the same position in the points table, also these teams totally depend on their overseas performers such as Smith, Butler , Stokes, Russel, Cummins. If CSK got the victory against these two teams with their strong zones and surprises such as playing Imran Tahir against these teams will surely cost them easy victory because these teams are not good against the spin bowling also in the lateral part of the tournament pitches might get slow and favour to spin bowling team on considering these points it will surely pull these two teams below in the points table, probably CSK might settle in the TOP 4 spot after these two teams victory. This will increase CSK play off chance to 75% ..
Royal Challengers Bangalore & Kings XI Punjab:
Both Teams were dependent on their strong batting order and star batsmens like Virat kohli, ABde , Rahul , mayank. If they lose against RCB also , there are high chances that they might have a good Net run rate at them. Also, CSK playing their final game against KXIP also after registering the 10 wicket victory against them will boost them for success and increase the play off chance by 100%.
