Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has endured two losses in two of its opening matches in the Tata IPL 2022. The change in captaincy hasn’t gone better for the Super Kings (CSK) as their losing run continues.
In the recent fixture, CSK scored a massive 210 against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), but still, they lost the match by six wickets. Death bowling has been a major concern for the franchise. The lack of experience in death bowlers is what hurting them.
Meanwhile, Punjab Kings (PBKS) won its first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) convincingly. The Punjab batters were at their absolute best and finished the high scoring game in the 19th over itself.
Though batting is not an issue for Punjab, their bowling too isn’t that great. The bowlers leak timely boundaries and in death, they just simply produce poor balls and offer simple shots to the opposition.
