Irfan Pathan says Rain stoppage gave CSK an unfair advantage in IPL final! Gets brutally trolled by fans

Now that the celebrations for Chennai Super Kings winning their 5th IPL trophy in the Indian Premier League have settled down, cricket experts have started analyzing some specific points about the final match.

Once certain take that Irfan Pathan had about the match has caused a considerable amount controversy in social media. The former Indian player said that the rain stoppage and the shortening of the second innings gave an unfair advantage to Chennai Super Kings.

“In a rain curtailed shortened final Yesterday CSK started batting with Shami. Rasid and Mohit losing one over each from their regular quota of 4 overs. That means league’s top 3 wicket takers were deprived of 18 balls and no wickets. That’s certainly played as an advantage to CSK,” Irfan Pathan said in his tweet.

“Can’t believe you are a cricket expert. U think 171 in 15 overs at 11.40 Rpo was easy and that too against the best bowling line up?? 9 out of 10 times bowling team can easily win in this situation and that one time was yesterday for CSK. Jadeja rayudu conway r experienced,” a fan said in reply.

However, not all the fans are trolling Irfan Pathan. It is a reality that there’s something called the ‘short game advantage’ which means that the team batting second is always in an advantageous position if the overs are reduced. Scoring 171 runs in 15 overs and scoring 215 runs in 20 overs are not the same with all the factors considered. And many fans pointed this out under Organ’s tweet, solidifying his claim.

The focus, however, has now shifted to the WTC final between India and Australia which will start from 7th June at the Oval. The Indian players have already started preparing for the match while the Aussies were preparing for quite some time now.
