Chennai Super Kings seek a cure for butterfingers

“Everytime” coverImage via Wikipedia

If there was a blot in their performance against Deccan Chargers yesterday, it was the fielding.

The fielders dropped dollies of successive deliveries and instead of affecting a run out, they converted it into a game of tag. Smith the beneficiary went on to make a rapid 49. Luckily, his innings only served to delay our victory.

However in the earlier matches catches dropped of Sachin and AB de Villiers proved costly and we went on to lose both the matches albeit closely.

All this makes one wonder what is causing this epidemic amongst the Chennai Super Kings fielders. Is it the swine flu or a simple case of nerves?

Whatever be it a cure has to be found at the earliest.

I think the run out was the closest MSD came to being angry :)

Did I hear someone (Mr. Buchanan?) say a fielding coach is needed?

Badri and albie missing catches is shocking.

RS,

The first dropped catch of (Smith) and the run out made the team look like a bunch of amateurs.

The catch dropped by Morkel seemed a result of premature celebrations. I think he was eager to throw it up in the air before completing the catch.

When form and luck deserts you equanimity too disappears.

I really thought Chennai was one of the better fielding team. Badri dropping catches???? Anyhow I am happy Dhoni made the changes we discussed about, the team now looks solid. Hopefully they continue winning.

Slog,

All the teams misfield like crazy. Catches aside, the dew factor appears to contribute to this.
