Why Joginder Sharma playing fo Chennai Super Kings?

Why Joginder Sharma is playing for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2009? I cannot understand the logic behind including Joginder Sharma if you are not going to allow him to bowl. I listed below the contributions of Joginder Sharma so far in the matches played by Chennai Super Kings:

Match #1 Vs Mumbai Indians:
Joginder Sharma's bowling figures 4-0-25-1. He is the most economical bowler of the five bowlers Chennai Super Kings used. Joginder Sharma scored 16 runs off 15 balls and remained unbeaten. I felt that the team management made a mistake of sending Joginder ahead of Thilan Thushara.

Match #2 Vs Bangalore Royal Challengers:
Did not bat. Bowled just one over, gave away 10 runs and accounted for the wicket of Virat Kohli.

Match #3 Vs Delhi Daredevils:
Bowled just one over and gave away 8 runs. Scored 4 runs off 3 balls.

Match #4 Vs Kolkata Knight Riders:
Match abandoned due to rain.

Match #5 Vs Deccan Chargers:
Did not bat. Bowled just one over that went for 14 runs.

It is clearly evident that Joginder Sharma is not in the team's scheme of things. He has bowled just one over in each of the last three matches. If he is not going to be used as a bowler, why should you pick him in the team? It is time for Chennai to sit down and make their strategy clear for the rest of the matches. Further time lost would mean Chennai Super Kings is just adding to the number of the teams. Will they come good against Shane Warne led Rajasthan Royals today?
