CSK is capable of retaining the title despite tournament opener defeat – Matthew Hayden
Mathew Hayden says that Chennai Super Kings should not get disappointed after their opening day defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders and they will come back stronger in the coming games of the Indian Premier League.
Former Australian cricketer Mathew Hayden says that Chennai Super Kings should not get disappointed after their opening day defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders and they will come back stronger in the coming games of the Indian Premier League.
He further added that CSK is still capable of retaining its IPL title, despite the change in leadership.
In the tournament opener of IPL 2022, CSK faced a six-wicket defeat against KKR, in which both their departments of batting and bowling failed to click at the Wankhede Cricket Stadium in Mumbai last Saturday.
The next clash of CSK is with the newcomer Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), who started their Indian Premier League 2022 campaign with a five-wicket defeat against Gujrat Titans (GT) last Monday at the Barbourne Stadium.
Aussie batting legend and former CSK cricketer said during an episode of ‘Cricket Live’ on Star Sports:
“CSK will not be disheartened with the loss in their opening game against KKR. There were plenty of positives for the Ravindra Jadeja-led side. Their top-order saw a rare batting collapse in the first game but there is a lot of experience in the side and I am sure they will come back stronger in the next game.”
“They missed Moeen Ali in the tournament opener and he will be available for selection in the next match. CSK have it in them to pull it off and that makes them a dangerous side,”he added.
