- Former Aussie Legend Matthew Hayden Believes CSK Can Win IPL 2022
- Hayden said CSK will come back stronger in the next game and can keep the title
- After losing to KKR, CSK will face Lucknow Super Giants today
Despite a change in leadership in Chennai Super Kings (CSK), former Australian cricketer and commentator Matthew Hayden believes CSK is capable of winning the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 and retaining their title. Hayden has given up his faith in CSK, saying that CSK has what it takes to do well and that makes them a dangerous side.
Four-time IPL champion CSK suffered a loss in his first match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), as both their bowling and batting had failed to make an impact in the way they would have liked. The team succumbed to a six-wicket loss to KKR in the season opener.
CSK CAN WIN IPL
“CSK will not be discouraged by the loss in their opening game against KKR. There were many positives for the Ravindra Jadeja led side. Their top ranking saw a rare at-bat collapse in the first game, but there’s a lot of experience on the side and I’m sure they’ll come back stronger in the next game,” batting legend Hayden said on an episode of Cricket Live on Star Sport.
“They missed Moeen Ali in the tournament opener and he will be available for selection in the next match. CSK has what it takes to pull it off and that makes them a dangerous side,” he added.
CSK will take on the KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium at 7.30pm today. Led by Ravindra-Jadeja, CSK hopes to take their first win by getting their combinations and strategies in order for this clash.
In their first game, CSK were limited to 131 against KKR and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the team’s former captain, batted a brilliant half-century. However, other players need to step up their game against LSG.
