Will CSK enter Play off in IPL 2020.The way CSK team is playing, I guess this time they will not make it to play offs. Yes I agree that the league at early stage and a long way to go. But the way CSK team is playing, it looks like they will not make it to the play off.
Though experience is there they lack something. And Rayudu's absence due to fitness put them in trouble. They are clearly missing Raina here whose presence would have given more confidence to the team. They complete rely on Faf who is the only batsman who scores in all three matches so far they played and also holding the orange cap.
Openers failed to fire in the power play. So my suggestion would be once Rayudu is available he should be back to his spot and Murali Vijay should be dropped and Rituraj should open the innings with Watson.
Coming to the bowling department. CSKs spinners were not performing well. Especially Jadeja who is expensive in all three matches. Chahar has been economically good. But unable to take wickets. With Hazlewood back in the last game, bowled really well. Unless spinners starts bowling well without leaking more runs, chance of CSK getting into the play off is minimal.
Coming to the all rounder Sam Curran - who has reserved his spot replacing Bravo in that place is really boon to the CSK side. His innings against MI is one of the best.
The positives that CSK have so far is the form of Faf and Sam Curran. Apart from that they have to make lot of changes and IPL being a quick tournament, they don't have enough time and have to act quickly.
So what are your thoughts about CSK. Will they qualify for the play off.
