Former India player Gautam Gambhir has opened up on the fact that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) players are not playing that much in international cricket and that could be a blessing in disguise for them as well.
Notably, CSK are placed second in the IPL 2021 points table. before the league got suspended due to COVID-19. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals (DC) have been leading the chart by just a couple of points and also have an additional game in hand as well.
During a discussion on Star Sports, Gautam Gambhir said: “Yes, they have the players who do not play much cricket, but it can be a blessing at times because you don’t have the pressure to play international cricket or making a comeback.”
“They will take that confidence with them” – Gautam Gambhir on CSK
He added that the MS Dhoni-led side can even afford a slow start too as they have done well and can qualify for the playoffs with ease as well.
Gautam Gambhir observed: “They have put themselves in a position that even if they start slightly slowly, it will not make too much of a difference. If they start slowly in one or two matches, you will still be able to qualify for the top four and once you do that, it could be anyone’s game.”
“Plus after playing at the Wankhede, if you are going to these conditions, you will be better placed because Wankhede is a very difficult ground. They have done something good to be in this position despite having such a squad. They will take that confidence with them,” he further added.
However, CSK had a rather forgettable season last year where they failed to qualify for the playoffs for the very first time. But, this season they bounced back quite well. And, after a reversal in their first match against DC, they registered victories in their next four matches at the Wankhede Stadium as well.
