MS Dhoni says that CSK young people in the IPL have a shortage of ‘spark’

The skipper of Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Monday, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), said the youth in his team didn’t show the spark to get in on the XI stage to the detriment of this Indian Premier League (IPL) season’s veterans.

Three-time champions CSK, who were blamed for continuing their old warhorses, were this time defeated by Rajasthan Royals in the tournament on Monday in seventh.

‘You don’t want a chop and a change. Insecurity,’ said Dhoni at the ceremonia of the opening ceremony after the loss of a seven-wicket, ‘is something you don’t want to prevail in the dressing room.’

“We didn’t see the spark in the kids, either, to drive the guys. But what has been accomplished is that we’ve been given a chance to those kids in the remainder of the tournament.

With the 98-run fourth wicket partnership between Jos Buttler (70) and Skipper Steves Smith (26) RR has restricted CSK to just a modest 125 for 5 after inviting him to the bowl and overcast him in 17.3 overall.

“There’s been a little (in the pitch) for the fast bowlers,” Dhoni told him; “and the explanation that I brought in [Ravindra] was that Jadaja saw how much it had been stopping, and it didn’t have as much as the first bowls.

“It shouldn’t go your way forever. We must see if the procedure has been misunderstood. The outcome of this is a by-product, but the fact remains that the excessive burden of the outcome does not come into the cloakroom if you concentrate on the process. RR Captain Smith was pleased that at an essential point of the tournament he won a vital victory.

Strange game but nice to get on the winning side. I thought we had quite good powerplay bowls in the middle with our leggies and googlies and squeezing, “he said.” The wicket did a lot of work, but wasn’t easy for batting.

“Buttler’s inputs removed the pressure from me at the other end. This was very nice wicket innings which were hardly easy,” added Smith.
