Defending champions Chennai Super Kings have conceded their third straight defeat of IPL 2022. The team is yet to win a game so far in the campaign. Against Punjab Kings on Sunday, the franchise faced a heavy loss by 54 runs. They will next play Sunrisers Hyderabad on 9th April at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy Stadium in Mumbai. On that note, in this article, we take a look at two changes Chennai Super Kings might make for their next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
1) Prashant Solanki for Mukesh Choudhary
The spinners of CSK have so far not had a great outing in the competition. Both Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali have not been able to pick a lot of wickets. This is a concern for the franchise as the bowling attack lacks variety now.
Hence, they could try to go in for Prashant Solanki, who has done well with his leg spin in recent domestic competitions. Mukesh Choudhary has gone for too many runs and could, unfortunately, face an axing from the XI. CSK does have other good pace options but with the foreigners doing well in the pace department, they could try including a spinner. With this move, CSK could then have better control in the middle overs with the ball.
2) N Jagadeesan for Ambati Rayudu
N Jagadeesan for Ambati Rayudu is one of the changes Chennai Super Kings might make for their next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Although CSK is known to back the experienced players, they could be forced to make a change in their forthcoming encounter. While Rayudu has not been able to contribute with the bat so far, he is also becoming a liability on the field.
Amongst the options that CSK has, they could hand a chance to N Jagadeesan, who has played for the franchise before. He has done decently well in the opportunities that he has got and considering the success that many other Indian uncapped cricketers have got in this edition, it would not be a bad idea to include the player in the XI. CSK anyways needs to plan for life after MS Dhoni and investing in a wicket-keeper batter like Jagadeesan could be a good start.
