The year 2020 has not been a good year for anyone right from the beginning, to top it off even Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had a bad time this IPL season.

Fans, who were having much expectations with the franchise of the 13th season in UAE have been disappointed with the three-time champions. 

Weeks after MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket, fans were eager to see him play for CSK in IPL 2020 but sadly things did not go as planned.

Especially yesterday's match with Mumbai Indians (MI) proved to be a new low for CSK. They suffered their biggest defeat in IPL where CSK lost a match by 10 wickets in the history of the tournament. 

This big defeat has left fans and CSK players hurt, meanwhile, captain MS Dhoni admitted his team's failure who could not perform from the second game onwards. He also commented that the remaining games will see a lot of youngsters in the squad. 

“Even when you are hurting you put a smile on your face so that the management doesn’t look like they are in panic. That is what the youngsters want and I feel the boys have done that. We have kept the dressing room like that and hopefully we can turn it around in the next three games at least for pride. We need to have a clear picture for the next year. The kind of auction, where the venues will be, and you want to give the boys a chance to perform and show their talent. We have to make the most of the next three games and it is good preparation for the next year. Identify the batsmen, who will bowl at the death and hopefully the players will soak up the pressure. Captain can’t run away, so I’ll be playing in all the games," Dhoni said post match.

“What you need to see is what are the things that are going wrong. Especially this year, it hasn’t been our year. Whether you lose by 8 or 10 wickets, it hardly matters, but where we are at this stage of the tournament, it does hurt,” he said.”What you need to see is where we actually went wrong, right from the second game,” Dhoni added. 

Currently, CSK are out of reckoning for a place in the play-offs with just six points from 11 matches. They are rooted at the bottom place in the IPL points table. “There can be a 100 reasons, but one of the main things you ask yourself is whether you’ve played to the potential you’ve got no matter the conditions. When you put a good team on paper, have we done enough to back up the stats? And this year we haven’t," the captain further stated.

“It was more about the bowling. Rayudu got injured, the other batsman were maybe not there 200% and in cricket when you’re going through a tough phase, you need a bit of luck. The games we wanted to bat first, we haven’t won the toss, and there’s no dew and all of a sudden when we bat first there’s dew,” he also noted.

Further in his conversation, Dhoni said there have been batting failures but termed it a part and parcel of the game. “You can’t always think the result will go your way. Even when you’re hurting, you try to smile and take it on the chin. I feel the boys have done that, they’ve tried to perform. I think it’s important for us to have a clear picture of next year. There are lots of ifs and buts - auction, where the venues will be.”
