CSK’s Disappointing IPL 2020
For the first time in the history of the tournament, the CSK franchise could not make it to the Playoffs as they also became the first team to be out of the Playoffs race. CSK were missing veteran cricketers Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh – who pulled out of the tournament citing personal reasons. Making a comeback to cricket after 400 days, Dhoni too did not have a tournament to remember as he could not find his rhythm and timing. He amassed 200 runs in 14 matches and did not live up to his reputation.
Future of CSK
In all probability, CSK would make changes to their squad in the upcoming IPL. They could release a few big names in the upcoming Mega auction.
