Now hope they try out Rajvardhan and/or Solanki in the next 2 games
God joke, mate!
CSK ain;t going to try them out unfortunately. I pity the newcomers, cause even though CSK is out, they aren't giving their budding youngsters a shot here. Any other team would certainly have tried them out.
Disagree! Why did you play Mukesh right from the 1st game then? Why did you bid for N Jagadeeshan? Rajvardhan Hangargekar will walk away from this IPL without playing a game. Given MSD's demi-God status, he is bound to give a stupid interview proclaiming how MSD shaped his thought process and other bs. I'd honestly be happy if he and Jagdeeshan walk away from CSK next year. Atleast, they can be better utilized by teams like Punjab, KKR, SRH etc.Fleming gave that explanation about "not wanting to destroy Rajvardhan's career by throwing him in the deep end so soon".
I think he is currently the best player for NZ by a fair margin across formats. So not too sure why won't he get enough recognition. He could've easily been their top run scorer in the WT20 had he not been shunted down to bat at 4.
For two unknowns before the start of this IPL, both Mukesh Chaudhary and Simarjeet Singh kept CSK very much in this contest in the first 8 overs of that chase when defending 97 runs. Mumbai literally had to pay them respect and play them out safely, to feel more comfortable in the run chase.
Those two boys are big positives for CSK - especially Mukesh Chaudhary. For the horrific start he had, I was muttering expletives and yet CSK backed him and he has come out good. He has the swing to trouble batsman and on pitches like this, him and Deepak Chahar will be a real handful. Combine that with the spin attack and if we return to Chepauk next year, lots of positives to look forward to. Now hope they try out Rajvardhan and/or Solanki in the next 2 games, since playoffs is completely ruled out.
That way I agree. But I think the IPL team owners and coaches around the world were definitely aware about his skills. Not often do we see a batsman scoring in excess of 40 in 4 of the first 5 innings in T20 Internationals. From the time he has arrived into the scenes he has looked like an established player.if you ask ten people to name the top 10 batsmen in T20 cricket, he will not feature.
A good thing IMO. We get depressed only once a week as opposed to multiple timesNot complaining but SRH plays like 1 match a week.
