CSK has won 4 out of 6 matches in IPL 2023
Young bowlers under the leadership of Dhoni did well

New Delhi, The only difference between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians in the last IPL was that one team was at 10th position and the other at 9th. Both the teams had won 4-4 matches. But, in IPL 2023, the attitude of Chennai Super Kings seems to have changed. Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK won as many matches after playing 14 matches in the last season, after playing only 6 matches. That too on the basis of young players. Especially Chennai Super Kings have such fast bowlers this season, who have very little IPL experience.

Ben Stokes was bought by Chennai Super Kings at a hefty price in the IPL auction. But, Stokes played only 2 matches and bowled in only 1 match. Deepak Chahar was also bought by the team in the mega auction of IPL 2022 for 14 crores. But, last year he was out of the entire season due to injury. Even in IPL 2023, Deepak got injured again after playing the first 3 matches and did not field since the match against Mumbai Indians. Deepak failed to take wickets in all the three matches.

Despite this, if CSK was successful in winning 4 matches, then Dhoni’s captaincy has an important contribution in this. He used 3 such fast bowlers who do not have experience of playing in IPL. But, as soon as Dhoni came in his hands, these bowlers were also showing the game like a champion. These three bowlers are Akash Singh, Tushar Deshpande and Mathisha Pathirana. Only Mathisha has played international cricket in this. But, he also does not have much experience of IPL. These three fast bowlers have played 19 IPL matches in total.

All three pacers played a total of 19 matches
CSK’s most experienced fast bowler Tushar Deshpande has played only 12 matches. On the other hand, Akash Singh has played 4 matches and Mathisha Pathirana has played only 3 matches and Dhoni is taking the Chennai Super Kings car forward on their trust and if the performance of these bowlers continues like this, then consider CSK’s fifth title for sure. Because the team has good spin bowlers and the bat of top order batsmen is also speaking.

Pathirana bowled brilliantly in the death overs
Mathisha Pathirana has played 2 matches in IPL 2023. But, he has bowled brilliantly in both the matches. In the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the 20-year-old Sri Lankan pacer conceded just 22 runs in 4 overs and took 1 wicket. Pathirana also bowled the 18th and 20th overs against Sunrisers Hyderabad towards the match against RCB. In his 18th over, he gave only 5 runs and got the important wicket of Henkir Klaasen and in the 20th over also gave only 7 runs.

Similarly, Dhoni handed over the first over of the match against RCB to left-arm pacer Akash Singh and by getting the wicket of Virat Kohli, this pacer lived up to the trust of the captain.

Tushar has taken 10 wickets so far
Tushar Deshpande is proving to be expensive this season. No ball and wide are also being thrown. But, Dhoni has kept faith in this pacer and Tushar is also providing breakthroughs to the team on important occasions. Tushar has played all 6 matches and has taken a total of 10 wickets. He is the highest wicket-taker for CSK this season.
