Don’t underestimate Chennai, says Irfan Pathan

Written by Vipin Darwade

Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has urged opposition teams to not do the mistake of underestimating Chennai Super Kings despite the defending champions getting off to a poor start in IPL 2022. CSK have won only 2 off their first 7 matches and are in danger of getting ousted from the race to the play-offs early.

Chennai Super Kings are currently in the 9th spot in the 10-team IPL 2022 points table with 4 points, 8 behind newbies Gujarat Titans who are on top of the table.

Chennai Super Kings take on Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai as they seek to take another step towards a comeback. However, CSK were hammered by PBKS in the reverse fixture wherein they were bowled out for 126 while chasing 181.

Pathan pointed out that CSK have bounced back from setbacks plenty of times in the past and that tt won’t be surprising if they do so once again. Notably, in IPL 2010, Chennai had won only 2 of their first 7 matches but they went on to win the trophy, the first of their 4 titles.

“No team can make the mistake of underestimating CSK. This is a team that knows how to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. This team has done it many a time and that is why it has always been the most dangerous of sides in the history of the league,” Irfan Pathan told Star Sports.
