IPL 2022 Chennai Super Kings MS Dhoni Mike Hussey: Chennai Super Kings batting coach Mike Hussey has admitted that the team is not looking too far ahead after the loss. Also said that the current IPL champions have lost six out of nine matches this season and are currently ranked ninth in the points table. Chennai has been stifled this IPL season mainly due to poor performances by the top-order batsmen and they would like to correct it against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the MCA Stadium on Wednesday when the teams clash for the second time this IPL season.
Hussey, a long-time batting coach with CSK, is eyeing a win for the second time since last month’s 23-run victory in the opening match against Bengaluru, where CSK scored a mountain-like run of 216.
Hussey said the best option for the team is to focus on one match at a time and see how things go from there. Gujarat Titans have 16 points in the points table, followed by Lucknow Super Giants at 14, Rajasthan Royals on 12 and three teams on 10 points. At the same time, CSK is currently at 9th place with 6 points.
The former Australian player praised the Rituraj Gaikwad-Devon Conway partnership in the previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, in which Gaikwad scored 99 while Conway scored an unbeaten 85.
Hussey said, “I think when we do well in a match, we try to do it consistently. We have probably been good in different aspects in one match and not so good in another. If we achieve that consistency If we do, then obviously it will help in our work.” Hussey also said that Ravindra Jadeja, who handed back the captaincy of CSK to Mahendra Singh Dhoni after consecutive defeats, bowled well in the last match.
