Chennai Super Kings have only them self to blame for today's defeat. None of the batsman other than Raina took charge. A very poor batting performance. Ashwin's fine bowling brought the game on even cards, only lost by the team's selection of Thushara ahead of Murali.
1. Ashwin: Wonderful performance by him. His four overs gave the team a glimmer of hope of winning the game.
1. Hayden: His performance this IPL has not been good this year. Except for that one match against Delhi Daredevils, he has never got going for the team.
2. Team Selection: They got away with dropping Murali once. But today's match clearly showed why Murali should never have been dropped
3. Dhoni & Hussey: One of these experienced batsmen should have stayed on.
With this loss, the team find itself in a position to win the rest of the games to qualify for the semi-finals.
