CSK batting exposed
Despite Bravo heroic CSK struggled in their batting front. They played the IPL opener with only 5 specialist batsman and many all-rounders in the first eleven. Most experienced players of CSK Raina & Dhoni were out of colors. Chennai experiment with Ambati Rayudu was not fulfilling up to the expectation. Their batting is really short of batting firepower. They need to include one more overseas batsman in the squad in between Faf and Sam. MS Dhoni will definitely look to rectify the loopholes in his side.
Mumbai Indians find the terrific leg-spinner Mayank Markkande. He impressed everyone with his accuracy and variation. He got the three crucial wickets of CSK in his debut. Which also include the priceless wicket of MS Dhoni.
