Former England captain Michael Vaughan has raised questions over Ravindra Jadeja’s captaincy after CSK’s loss in opposition to the Gujarat Titans. Vaughan believes that underneath MS Dhoni’s management, CSK didn’t lose so many video games from a successful scenario.

Within the just lately concluded match, CSK didn’t defend 170 in opposition to Gujarat Titans. Although they began off nicely and picked 4 early wickets, lowering GT to 48/4 in eight overs, they might not preserve the consistency all through and poor on-field selections handed them the fifth defeat of the season as GT snatched the victory from jaws of defeat after David Miller’s heroics.

Vaughan felt that the sport wouldn’t have lasted until the final over if Dhoni have been the captain and that he wouldn’t have given the opposition any likelihood to bounce again within the sport. Vaughan seen Dhoni’s technique of setting the sphere through the sport and had his ideas to share on the state of affairs.

“As a brand new captain, you need to win tight video games. Actually, it wasn’t a decent sport and so they misplaced it. They need to have simply received that sport by 10 or 15 runs and I can solely think about what would occur now. I don’t keep in mind seeing MS Dhoni lose too many video games like that. You might be by no means used to seeing MS’ aspect lose a decent sport and wouldn’t have even let it get to be in tight,” Vaughan instructed Cricbuzz.

“You may see then that he was maneuvering himself into the captain’s function, maneuvering fielders, which is ok. I believe Ravindra Jadeja would need that from MS Dhoni behind the stumps. However whenever you’re at your infantry phases as a captain, you need to win the video games you have been in charge of,” he added.

CSK misplaced the sport resulting from poor area selections in the direction of the top

The sport turned when Chris Jordan conceded 25 runs within the 18th over as Rashid smashed him for a number of boundaries. Dwayne bravo tried his finest within the penultimate over, however the ball was given to Jordan once more for the final over, the place he needed to defend 13 runs. Miller took full benefit of the scenario as the sport slipped away from CSK’s palms.

Vaughan felt that CSK’s defeat must be a studying level for the brand new skipper and that he ought to perceive how essential it’s for captains to win such close-cut video games by placing right area settings and supporting the bowling unit.

CSK will subsequent face Mumbai Indians of their subsequent encounter. The 2 most profitable groups within the historical past of IPL have been struggling to make a mark this season, and thus will search for redemption of their upcoming sport.
