Gambhir also felt that CSK should keep an over of Josh Hazlewood spare for the death overs. The reaction comes after CSK lost the last three matches defending.

“They need someone in the death otherwise they become one-dimensional. They should keep one over of Josh Hazlewood against Delhi Capitals batting which has Axar Patel and R Ashwin batting at No.6 & 7,” he signed off.
