Ravindra Jadeja, the new captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), had a bad start. Ravindra Jadeja lost his first match as captain due to the failure of the top order batsmen. Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Chennai’s team by 6 wickets in the opening match, playing under the leadership of Ravindra Jadeja. After the loss in the first match, former Indian coach Ravi Shastri, who is doing commentary in IPL, has also given some advice to captain Jadeja.
Ravi Shastri gave this advice to Ravindra Jadeja
Commentator Ravi Shastri advised Ravindra Jadeja that he should have come a little earlier in the bowling and should not have given early overs to Shivam Dubey. He said, ‘I think as a captain Ravindra Jadeja has to be a little more brave when he is bowling. Sometimes as a captain you find yourself bowling late. At that time someone should be with you who says, go and bowl.
Talking about the strategy of the newly appointed captain Ravindra Jadeja, Ravi Shastri said, ‘I think when Shivam Dubey came to bowl, an experienced bowler should have come out to bowl. He would have been either Ravindra Jadeja or Mitchell Santner. Because when you are only defending 130 runs, then even a mistake can cost you dearly. One 14-15 over can completely take the game out of your hands.
Chennai Super Kings set Kolkata Knight Riders a target of 132 runs in 20 overs. Whose Kolkata achieved with 9 balls remaining. For Chennai, apart from Dwayne Bravo, no other bowler was in a better rhythm. Shivam Dubey bowled an over and spent 11 runs. At the same time, Ravindra Jadeja gave 25 runs in 4 overs. Mitchell Santner got a breakthrough after spending 31 runs in 4 overs.
