MS Dhoni may get banned, Sehwag issues a warning to the CSK: IPL 2023

In the current Indian Premier League (IPL) season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK)’s bowling unit has been a source of worry.

While CSK hitters have constantly produced staggering totals on the scoreboard, their bowlers have been unable to stop the batters from the opposition.

In spite of scoring 226 runs, CSK had to fight until the very last over to defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday, April 17, at Chinnaswamy Stadium, winning by 8 runs.
In the IPL 2023, CSK bowlers have been found guilty of several wides and no-balls. The four-time winners received a warning from legendary Indian batsman Virender Sehwag after they bowled six wides against RCB.

Sehwag believes that if the CSK bowlers do not improve, skipper MS Dhoni will risk a suspension for repeated slowly over-rate incidents.

Sehwag said to Cricbuzz that Dhoni did not appear to be in a good mood since he had previously stated that he wanted the bowlers to throw fewer wides and no-balls. Sehwag added that it shouldn’t get to the point where Dhoni is suspended, and CSK must play without their captain. Sehwag also said that it seems that Dhoni might only play a few more games given the type of knee injury he has, and although he is always pushing himself, Dhoni will need to relax if his bowlers bowl so many wides and no-balls.

Maheesh Theekshana, a CSK spinner, bowling wide against RCB infuriated Sehwag even more.
Sehwag said that it is particularly upsetting to observe spinners bowling wide.

The former India opener described CSK’s bowling attack as “weak” and stated that if the Dhoni-led team doesn’t address this problem right away, it would be challenging for them to advance in the competition.

Sehwag said that he has been stating that CSK’s bowling is subpar from day one and that they must improve in that division. He also added that they would have to make use of their available resources this season.

On Friday, April 21, Chennai Super Kings will play Sunrisers Hyderabad at Chepauk.
