Chennai lost their fifth game on the trot, this time finishing as the second best against Rajasthan by seven wickets. Chennai, in all fairness, never looked in control. Right from the very first over, Chennai lacked the cutting edge, and they did try to salvage something out of it, but could only manage to post 125/5 in 20 overs.
As their top order crumbled, the onus came on the likes of MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and later Kedar Jadhav. And while Dhoni and Jadeja were decent at their best, Jadhav once again failed to do the talking, scoring a mere four runs off seven deliveries. the 35-year-old, this season, has scored just 62 runs from eight matches, and the fans seem to have enough of him. The faithful are taking to social media to express their discontent over his performance, urging the three-time Indian T20 League winners to replace him with someone who can deliver results consistently.
Chennai, as one would have expected, failed to defend their measly total as Rajasthan rode a 98-run fourth-wicket stand between Jos Buttler and Steve Smith to finally climb up in the standings. Meanwhile, this is what the fans are saying about Jadhav:

Kedar Jadhav in his short stay of 4 from 7 deliveries tonight tried to played Upper Cut, Sweep shot, aerial shots but connected nothing.— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) October 19, 2020
Kedar Jadhav exists in CSK only to make Dhoni look good in comparison— The Bad Doctor (@DOCTORATLARGE) October 19, 2020
If someone tell u it's Fleming decision to play K.Jadhav just laugh at their innocence about d game,— Naganathan (@Nn84Naganatha) October 19, 2020
Dhoni decision making power is much above everything within CSK, so decision to play #Jadhav completely is MSD decision.. May b it's his ego to prove everyone wrong but he failed.
Honestly, how much worse could Jagadeesan or Ruturaj do than Jadhav?— The Joker 🃏 (@Joker122018) October 19, 2020
If nepotism exists anywhere in cricket then it has to be CSK.
Jadhav isn't playing right from the first match clearly can see him struggling but in Team repeatedly. Csk management should go with some Youngster's next time— ᴠɪʀᴀᴛ ᴠᴇʀɪʏᴀɴ (@White___Devil18) October 19, 2020
As a true CSK fan we should point out their mistakes. Jegadeesan, highest run scorer in TNPL, not even given opportunity despite of performing well in one inning. Even Sam Curran is tested for opening slot, but Jegadeesan being an opening batsman not even tested. Jadhav😡😡— Izhaan ul huq (@izhantweetz) October 19, 2020
