Most of the teams in this IPL have a good death attack. But Bravo’s injury has caused an attack to CSK’s death bowling. After Ngidi’s injury, much of their hopes rested on Bravo. Now that he has been ruled out for at least 2 weeks, CSK suddenly find themselves in trouble.
Will CSK rope in Scott Kuggeleijn? He is a pacer from NZ who can clock close to 140 kph consistently. His lack of experience in international cricket might hurt CSK. But with only a few options available, Scott might well make his CSK debut.
How will Dhoni distribute the overs? CSK have shown faith in Deepak Chahar by allowing him to finish his spell in the first 10 overs. Jadeja and Tahir have been consistent so far. But the last 8 overs is a big worry here. Both Shardul Thakur and Scott have enough pace, but that doesn’t good overs at the death. Mohit Sharma, who impressed against MI, is the only good option they have.
So will Dhoni try Shane Watson? Or will Raina serve as a filler in the middle to keep Mohit Sharma available for the crucial death overs? A lot of questions remain to be answered. The toss should be an exciting one to watch as fans would love to see what strategy Dhoni comes up with.
