Former India legend Irfan Pathan Believes that Chennai Super Kings will reach the playoffs and their main aim would be to finish in the top two spots. Speaking to Star Sports, Irfan Pathan explains his thoughts about one of the successful IPL franchises of all time.
Irfan Pathan said that Chennai Super Kings is a ruthless team in its own way. He explained, “CSK is sure to qualify for the playoffs. Now they will try to make it to the Top-2. I always say that whenever any team comes to their home ground, ‘Chacha Chowdhary’ MSD closes the door of his stadium and thrashes the opposition mercilessly. CSK is a ruthless team and it deals with opposition teams in its own way.”
He also gave credit to Mahendra Singh Dhoni for taking out the best out of the available options like Tushar Deshpande and Matheesha Pathirana. On this, he stated, “CSK’s pace bowling attack looks pretty inexperienced and that is a concern. The bowlers will have to rise up but MS Dhoni has managed well with the resources he has.”
The discussion also saw S Sreesanth also talking about MS Dhoni’s ability of being a player’s captain and getting the best out of them. “MS Dhoni’s biggest quality is that he brings the best out of the players. And if they don’t know, he ‘ll make sure they understand their strengths. When they get the backing of the captain and the team atmosphere is so good, players bring out the best in them.”
After an emphatic win against the Mumbai Indians, the Chennai Super Kings are now talking on Delhi Capitals at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai.
