IPL 2021: Chennai Super Kings’ poor performance continues in the last league round matches of the Indian Premier League Season 14. CSK suffered their third consecutive defeat before the playoffs. Team coach Stephen Fleming, however, defended the middle order’s poor performance and said that there is nothing to worry about.
After the IPL’s shift to UAE, the team’s middle order batsmen Moeen Ali, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina have not been able to play any big innings. CSK have won most of the matches due to the opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis and Ravindra Jadeja’s excellent performance in the middle order.
Fleming defended his players despite a six-wicket loss to Punjab Kings. “If you lose three matches in a row, you should be worried. It has been a bit tricky to try to score while batting first and go to different places to give targets.
Coach hopes to get the team back on track
Fleming and CSK’s association is very old. Fleming has been serving as the coach of CSK since 2013. He said that the performance of the team has been almost the same. Fleming said, “I’m not too worried about the future because it can change very quickly. My experience is that it has always been that the team is back on track after a few setbacks.
Three losses, however, did not affect CSK’s playoffs. CSK’s campaign has been very successful in IPL 14. CSK have not only secured a place in the playoffs by winning 9 out of 14 matches, but they have also managed to make their place in the top two of the points table.
