IPL 2020: MS Dhoni’s & CSK need 6 wins from 7 matches to qualify for Playoffs

IPL 2020 has reached half-way stage and no one would have imagined that CSK will be placed 7th in the points table with only 2 victories and 5 defeats. It has been a horror show for the three time IPL winners since the start of the tournament failing to convert wins and rueing missed chances.

Dubbed as one of the favourites to win the IPL 2020, MS Dhoni’s army has failed miserably so far this season. Chennai Super Kings will thus be desperate to grab a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad tonight in Dubai to keep their IPL dreams alive

CSK needs to win 6 out of 7 matches to qualify for playoffs. Can they start with a win against SRH today ?

CSK are currently placed second from bottom in the IPL 2020 points table halfway into the tournament. Considered one of the most successful chasers in IPL history, CSK’s batting has looked rusty. Barring Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson, the entire batting department everyone has struggled to play an inspiring innings.

After having lost in the first leg to SRH, CSK will be seeking to make amends and find back their winning streak. With incredibly small margins of errors possible, CSK will have a task cut out for tonight in their must win game against David Warner’s side.

Why Chennai Super Kings is struggling so badly ?

The biggest headache for them is the middle-order woes. Without Suresh Raina and struggling Dhoni, CSK’s middle-order has looked fragile.

The likes of Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo too failed to come to the team’s rescue.

On the bowling front, however, it has been a different story. Deepak Chahar, Curran and Shardul Thakur have been impressive. Dwayne Bravo’s return has only made things better for them.
