In the 15th IPL, the Chennai Super Kings, led by Ravindra Jadeja, have lost all four of their matches so far and are at the bottom of the points table.

Parthiv Patel wants MS Dhoni to open the innings for CSK

CSK, who won the IPL trophy last time, is stumbling in batting, fielding and bowling this time.

Jadeja has been heading CSK since Dhoni stepped down as captain. In the first match against Kolkata, Dhoni was the only batsman to score a half-century.

Continuing tooth decay

Subsequently, CSK scored 210 runs in the match against Lucknow and was forced to embrace defeat due to poor bowling and fielding. Next, the situation was similar in matches against Punjab and Hyderabad. Last time, the main reason for winning the IPL trophy was the team's opening pair.

Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj, who scored over 600 runs, topped the list of players who scored the most runs last season. However, this time Du Plessis was auctioned off to Bangalore and thereby CSK did not have any big partnerships with the opening pair in all four matches.

Ruturaj meets criticism

The most important reason for this is Ruturaj. He has scored 0,1,1 and 16 runs respectively in the four matches he has played so far and is facing a lot of criticism. Thus, the fans are commenting that there will be a crisis for his place in the upcoming matches. In this context, former CSK player Parthiv Patel has suggested that Dhoni should be the opener.

Dhoni as a opener?

“He is someone who has revived the CSK side over the years. MS Dhoni started his career as an opener, why not take the role at the fag-end of his career? He is batting at No.7 now and plays hardly 10-15 balls. So why not Dhoni bat up in the order at No.3 or maybe at 4 or open? Just a figure like MS Dhoni, even if he stays there for 14-15 overs you never know. You will have to do something different,” Parthiv said.

He knows everything

“Every time India were in trouble in seaming conditions, MS Dhoni got runs, whether it was against Sri Lanka where he got 80 in Dharamsala or in Chennai against Pakistan where he got a hundred. With his technique, everyone would think that he would struggle on a seaming wicket, and here the ball is seaming around in the first 4-5 overs and he has his own technique and knows how to survive,” he added.

Dhoni, who is ranked third and fourth in the IPL, is yet to make his debut. Similarly, he did not make his debut for the Indian team in the T20s.
