Chennai Super Kings (CSK) suffered a seven-wicket defeat against Rajasthan Royals on Monday (19 October). It was CSK’s seventh defeat in the 13th season (IPL 2020) of the Indian Premier League. Since this defeat, CSK has come under threat of being eliminated from the playoff race. After this match, there has been a controversy about the statement made by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). Dhoni said after the match that the young players were not given a chance because they did not see the spark. After former cricket Srikkanth, now Pragyan Ojha has also reacted to Dhoni’s statement.

Srikanth lambasted Dhoni for this statement, saying what spark did he see in Piyush Chawla and Kedar Jadhav? During a conversation with India Today, Pragyan Ojha said, ‘Who is the young player? If he is looking at himself as a senior player and then talking. Or did he talk about Rituraj Gaikwad and Jagadishan? I think he mentioned Kedar Jadhav. I have seen Dhoni, a lot is hidden in his statement.

He further said, ‘I can say with utmost certainty that he will never comment like this for these two young cricketers. Why would I comment on a player who has played the same match? I would like to go deeper into this statement. If they said so for Rituraj and Jagadishan, I would not support it at all, but if they made this statement for Piyush Chawla or anyone else? The 24-year-old Jagdishan played the same match for CSK, scoring 33 runs at a strike rate of 117.85. Rituraj had scored five runs in two matches. Kedar Jadhav played in eight matches and scored 62 runs at an average of 20.66 and a strike rate of 93.93.
