They were on backfoot right from the start of the game and could never really get going barring an exciting passage of play from overs 3-5.
It appears to be that the chances of making it to the play-offs are all but evaporated for CSK. They would need a miracle go turn things around and even that looks unlikely given the kind of form they are in.
CSK stands as one of the greatest T20 franchises in world cricket but things have not gone their way in the 2020 season.
The Dhoni-led franchise have registered 7 defeats this season and it is the most by any side. As things stand, Chennai Super Kings will not make it to the playoffs.
Chennai will be facing the mighty strong Mumbai Indians in the next clash and they will be carrying positive intent into this game as they have defeated the defending champions earlier this season. This match will be played on 23rd of October.
