‘I’m not worried’: Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming on Ravindra Jadeja’s poor form | Cricket News

PUNE: Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming not too worried about the shape Ravindra Jadeja but it was said that in the future the team will assess which position in the ranking order best suits the star all-around.
In 10 matches this season, Jadeja scored just 116 runs with an average of 19.33 in 10 games, while taking five gates with an economic rate of 7.52.
On Wednesday, Jadeja was sacked for three aces CSK fell by 13 rounds against Royal Challengers Bangalore, their seventh defeat in total.
“No, I’m not worried. The T20 game can be tough and when you hit number 5 or 6, you don’t have much time to figure out your rhythm or tempo,” Fleming said during a virtual press conference.
“Now we’re going to look at that and determine what the best order would be next. But no, I’m not worried about his form.”

Terribly out of form, Jadeja returned captaincy to Mahendra Singh Dhoni last week to focus on his game.
With just six points from 10 games, CSK virtually dropped out of the tournament, and Fleming admitted that they “dropped out in all departments”.
“Our pitches are worrying from time to time, the catches we missed. We are not far away, in a lot of games we can say that we were very close to getting them.
“They took away our games or we weren’t good enough to cross the line. But it’s usually a competition story if you’re just getting started. All three departments were below level,” he said.
“We also lost some bowlers, you have to admit, but yes, we just set off.”
Injuries to key players have also affected CSK, and Deepak Chahar was the most prominent member to miss an entire season due to a back injury he suffered while recovering from a quadriceps tear.
Moeen Ali also missed several games after injuring his ankle during training.

“We had a few players we had in the plans we lost early, so we were looking to bring in young players, probably a little ahead of their time. Mukesh Choudhury has developed well, Simranjit gets a chance here,” Fleming said.
“But we were just out of our balance and the competition is so tough, it could be the difference. We have some very good turning points.”
RCB pacer Josh Hazlewood described their 13-run win over CSK as the team’s most important win so far in the tournament as it kept them looking for a playoff.
The win broke a series of three RCB defeats and helped them move to fourth place in the points table.
“It’s probably the most important win in the tournament so far. Somehow we’re in a moment where we have to win all the games to get into the playoffs, that’s what I feel, and today was the first step in that,” he said. .
“We’ve been level the last three games, we have to work on bowling, hitting and playing, to be honest. We’ve put it all together and kept our chances, so it’s the most important win so far.”
On his T20 form, Hazlewood said: “It’s mostly about continuously playing T20 cricket for the last three years and learning things along the way in different conditions, against different players.
“Talking to a lot of voices in this camp, there’s a lot of experience that’s handy, it speeds up the learning process for me that I’ve only played 60-70 T20 games.”
