CSK Bowlers lose the match

While it is easy to blame the CSK batsmen for the loss, 160 is always going to be tough to score in the wicket. 140-150 would have been a very competitive total on the pitch. And CSK poor performance in the power-play was also a key reason for the defeat. While bowlers should have taken early wickets in power-play overs, CSK batsmen (Vijay & Raina) should have been much more aggressive in the first four overs.

Positives:
1. Badri: Badri played a fine innings. Without Hussey in the team, he should have taken the responsibility to stay till the end - rather than looking to score the runs fast.

Negatives:
1. Bravo: Bravo has been having poor season so far. Might not be a bad idea to drop him for one match and play Hussey & Jakati in Bravo & Anirudh's place
2. Nannes: Your No:1 strike bowler can't be your most expensive bowler. 
3. Ashwin: Don't think Dhoni is getting the best out of the bowling unit - especially of Ashwin. It is time for Ashwin to win matches for CSK. 

Next Game is on Thurday against Delhi. Should believe it would be a must-win game so that CSK don't fall too behind the top four.

hey guys it is not a good idea to drop bravo out as he is one of the finest all rounders csk has got and bravo can play fine innings and can be a great bowling option as well. His records up till now proves that he is fine player, its just that he should be promoted in batting order so that he can face more bowls and can play fine innings. If MSD is reading this post than please consider this.
