New DelhiMahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK defeated KKR by 27 runs to win the IPL title for the fourth time. Barring the opening pair of KKR, none of the batsmen could play a big innings, which led them to lose in the final for the first time. At the same time, a batsman of KKR did not appear in the rhythm at all. This batsman has not been able to play any big innings, in such a situation, his career is now seen with brakes.
Silent is the bat of this batsman
KKR veteran batsman Dinesh Karthik has not been able to play any major innings in IPL 2021. Dinesh Karthik has played 16 matches in IPL 2021, in which he has scored just 223 runs at an average of 23.77 and strike rate of 131.28 and he could not score a single fifty. Karthik has also scored runs very slowly. His bat has been silent for the last several seasons. Now the effect of age is also visible on his game, he has become 36 years old.
No team will buy next year!
Karthik is longing for runs. Hardly any team was bought in the IPL auction next year because they have not performed according to their name. There has been a steady decline in their performance. Karthik had also left the captaincy in the middle of IPL 2020 so that he could focus on his performance. He has scored more than 4000 runs in IPL.
Reasons for the loss in the final
Shakib Al Hasan came to bowl the third over during KKR’s bowling. Shakib’s ball turned so much that Faf du Flessis could not understand it and went ahead of the crease, Karthik had a chance to stump du Plessis but he could not do so. What happened after that is history. Du Plessis played an important role in winning the final for CSK by playing a dangerous innings of 86 runs.
