CSK captain Ravindra Jadeja admitted failure to execute plans


Chennai Super Kings(CSK) skipper Ravindra Jadeja stated the team started wonderfully but failed to implement plan to win in the last five overs of the game after suffering their fifth setback in the ongoing IPL 2022 against Gujarat Titans(GT). GT defeated CSK by 3 wickets in their IPL 2022 match thanks to David Miller's unbeaten half-century and Rashid Khan's fast knock.

CSK captain Ravindra Jadeja commented in a post-match interview. He said that they got off to a great start. The bowling unit bowled well in the first six overs, but Miller deserves credit for playing some excellent cricket shots.

GT knocked down the target of 170 with a ball to spare thanks to David Miller's spectacular 94* and stand-in captain Rashid Khan's short performance of 21-ball 40.

Jadeja added that in the last five, they have failed to carry out their intentions (20th over). He believes Chris Jordan is knowledgeable, therefore he decided to accompany him. He has the ability to bowl 4-5 yorkers. Unfortunately, it did not happen today; nevertheless, the beauty of T20 cricket.

The GT have won five of their last six games, while CSK have lost five of their last six. With ten points, GT leads the IPL 2022 table, while CSK is just one point ahead of the winless Mumbai Indians.

The new franchise got off to a terrible start in their chase for 170 runs, scoring 37 runs in the opening six overs while losing three wickets. In the first over, Mukesh Choudhary dismissed Shubhman Gill for a golden duck. Meanwhile, Vijay Shankar and Abhinav Manohar were dismissed by Maheesh Theekshana in the second and fourth overs, respectively.

In the eighth over, CSK got their fourth wicket when captain Ravindra Jadeja struck to put Wriddhiman Saha back in the pavilion. CSK conceded 19 runs in the 12th over, and David Miller reached his fifty. With the match on the rynthm of GT's benefit, Dwayne Bravo delivered a spectacular maiden-wicket over to turn the tide. In that over, Bravo removed Rahul Tewatia.

Rashid Khan then joined David Miller at the crease, and the pair ensured that the tough period was completed without any wickets being lost. With 48 runs needed off the last 18 deliveries, Rashid went off the rails in Chris Jordan's 18th over, smashing three sixes and a four. In that over, GT scored 25 runs.

Bravo did remove Rashid Khan and Alzarri Joseph in the final over. Unfortunately, it was too late, as Miller guided his side to victory with a ball to spare in the match's final over.
