Another thing that has been terrifying for them is Kedar Jadhav’s frightful performance. In short, it can be said that he costed the last game to the side. Also, he was not allowed to bowl in CSK’s last game as before that, he had maintained a high economy of 9.55 and picking only three wickets in five matches.

Another factor that has been highly noted by many is the absence of Imran Tahir who won the purple cap in the last season of the cash-rich league. Also, in the recently held Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020), he ended as the highest wicket-taker.
