"Haydos" has been instrumental in the IPL Season 2. From the day he's won that orange cap (which is been awarded to the player with most number of runs in the con-current season), he is not giving it to anybody else, for the simple reason that he's been playing superbly in nearly every game. If CSK have to fancy their chances of winning the trophy (or at least going in-to the finals), then Hayden will have to carry the responsibility on his strong shoulders. Also he's been relaxed, for two reasons: - 1. He's retired from international cricket. (So there shouldn't be any controversy, what-so-ever: giving preference to IPL ahead of national duty or playing for his state side. 2. He's got good support from youngsters like Suresh Raina, S. Badrinath, Parthiv Patel & Other batsmen like Jacob Oram, M.S. Dhoni & Albie Morkel. He is also as fit and strong as ever.
