Stephen Fleming Explains why Dhoni won’t bat higher in IPL

The performance of the 42-year-old former skipper of the Chennai Super Kings has been impressive in the ongoing season as he is consistently hitting runs in the death overs and helping the side with a margin of 20-30 runs in just a few deliveries.

He is also not even dismissed for once in the ongoing season and smashed three consecutive sixes in the contest against Mumbai Indians to show his class. However, the fans of CSK want him should come early to the bat as it might affect the overall performance of the side in a positive way.

“Only a certain amount of balls he can function well,” says CSK head coach

Fleming pointed out that, Dhoni has faced knee injuries in the past and therefore he is currently not able to play many deliveries and that is one of the reasons why he is not coming early to bat. Fleming admitted that the crowd want to see him up in the order and also awaits to see his batting but considering the knee issues and his recovery, he is coming at the right position.

CSK faced a defeat in the previous clash as Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul made an impressive partnership of 134 runs for the first wicket while chasing the score of 176 and did not give any opportunity to CSK’s bowlers to get back in the game. However, the performance of the side has been balanced in the season as they are standing in the 3rd position with 4 wins in 7 matches.

Upcoming Clash will be very crucial

The upcoming contest between the Chennai Super Kings and the Lucknow Super Giants is going to be very crucial as both sides have secured 4 wins in the past 7 matches and the side winning the upcoming clash will improve their standings while the side losing the contest might have to face a drop in the upcoming clash.

CSK and LSG are against going to face each other on April 23rd, but this time the venue is going to be different as CSK will play at their home ground at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. Dhoni played a quick innings of 28* runs in just 9 deliveries with the help of 2 sixes and in the upcoming contests, he will look to carry on with the same flow.
