Death overs, a worry for Chennai Super Kings
Australian Andy Bichel, the Chennai Super Kings' bowling coach admitted that bowling in the death overs has been a problem while talking about their match against defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders here today.
“The death overs issue is under discussion in the team meeting and at the net sessions. That’s the real test.
“It’s a challenge. The idea is to keep improving. We will focus on it in today’s training session too,” Bichel explained. Since the Chepauk wicket has been playing slower, he said a part-timer like Suresh Raina could play a role. Fast bowler Dirk Nannes stands a chance of playing too.
“Balancing the playing XI is a challenge. May be (Suresh) Raina comes in as an option. The conditions are changing from match to match here and all over the country.
The explosive South African all-rounder Albie Morkel’s inclusion is a possibility too. “Albie has been bowling in the nets, but he requires some more preparation,” Bichel said.
