IPL 2022 CSK out of playoffs: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB vs CSK) defeated Chennai Super Kings by 13 runs in the 49th match of IPL 2022. With this defeat, CSK’s team is now out of the race for the playoffs. The performance of CSK has been poor this entire season. Earlier this team could not do anything special under the captaincy of Ravindra Jadeja and now even a captain like Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) himself could not cross the line of CSK. But Dhoni himself was the biggest responsible in the defeat against RCB.
CSK lost due to this decision of Dhoni
CSK had to face defeat due to a decision by Mahendra Singh Dhoni against RCB. In fact, even in this match, Dhoni did not give a chance to one of the most trusted players of the team, Dwayne Bravo. Before this match, Bravo was also out against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Then it was revealed that Bravo has a minor injury. But if the team won that match, then Dhoni did not think it right to give Bravo a place in the playing 11 in this match as well. Bravo is a player who has been giving strength to CSK over the years with the ball as well as the bat.
Amazing performance in IPL 2022 too
Bravo’s performance in IPL 2022 has also been amazing. He has been the highest wicket-taker for CSK this season. This player has taken 14 wickets in his name in just 8 matches. Bravo’s absence in the team was a big reason for CSK’s defeat as he could end the match with the bat by coming down the order in the end. The result was that CSK’s middle order was a complete flop against RCB and this team lost the match by 13 runs.
Dhoni flopped with the bat too
Along with captaincy, Dhoni (MS Dhoni) has flopped badly this year like many previous seasons. Against RCB, it was expected that Dhoni would finish the match but this player returned to the pavilion after scoring just 2 runs. Apart from this, the form of former captain Ravindra Jadeja has been like a nightmare. Jadeja got out after scoring 3 runs in this match too. At the same time, he could not take a single wicket with the ball.
