IPL 2020: Virendra Sehwag defamed CSK; “Some batsman think of CSK as a government job.’

MS-Dhoni led-CSK lost their last match to KKR by 10 runs in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Former Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag was so frustrated with their performances that they could not chase the target. Sehwag is known for his witty style and sarcastic statements. He told in an interview:

“It should have been chased down. But the dot balls played by Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja didn’t help. And, in my view, some of the Chennai Super Kings batsmen think of CSK as a government job, whether you perform or not, they know they’ll get their salary anyway,”

He further added:

“If you get the CSK top three or even the top two, it becomes difficult for them to chase. Earlier, Faf du Plessis would wage a lone battle. This time against KKR, Shane Watson did that.”

He even criticized CSK’s dumb approach Kedar Jadhav after Dhoni’s wicket fall-off. Jadhav just scored 7 runs in 12 balls. On his Facebook series “Viru ki Baithak” he called Jadhav as “useless decoration” and sarcastically pointed him as ‘Man of the Match’.

CSK is considered as the top competitor in IPL and has managed to reach the finals for about eight times. But this season, it will be tough for CSK to reach play-offs as they have already lost 4 matches out of a total 6 conducted till now.

Since the start of this season’s tournament, CSK is struggling in UAE. Initially, their training was delayed as 12 members along with some players were tested COVID-19 positive, then their senior players Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh were removed from official CSK’s website.
