Chennai Super Kings are having a difficult time in IPL 2020 as after 10 games into the season, the three-time champions find themselves at the bottom of the points table with just three wins. CSK, for a few years, have preferred experience over youth, which has got them results but this season, it isn’t going their way. And the CSK skipper’s recent comments about why youngsters weren’t given much of a chance hasn’t gone down well with the fans. MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav Trolled With Funny Memes for Poor Performance After CSK’s 7-Wicket Defeat to Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020.

Hopes of qualification for the play-offs are looking slim for Chennai Super Kings as they need to be perfect from here on but it looks highly unlikely given their struggles on the field. The three-time champions most recently suffered a defeat against Rajasthan Royals, which has left them at the foot of the team standings. CSK vs RR Stat Highlights IPL 2020: Jos Buttler Shines as Rajasthan Royals Thrash Chennai Super Kings by 7 Wickets.

Following that defeat, when asked about giving youth an opportunity in the team, MS Dhoni said: ‘In this season we weren't really there. Also with the youngsters, we didn't see the spark to push the guys. But what this result has done is give those youngsters a chance in the rest of the tournament to play without pressure.’

This response from the former Indian skipper didn’t bode well with the fans as they questioned the team’s poor performances this season despite their team consisting majority of the senior players. Here are some of the reactions.
