Know Your Player
MS Dhoni as a captain itself is a big addition to the team as he brings the best out of the players. The squad has been built around by a strong core of players like Suresh Raina, Ravi Jadeja, Dwane Bravo, and MS Dhoni himself who were part of CSK for the past 10 years
Shane Watson has been in is a form of his life especially for CSK since 2018 and has been an impactful player especially in pressure situations. He had scored a terrific century in the 2018 final which eventually made the final a one-sided affair.
He again scored a quickfire 80 in the 2019 IPL final which vent in vain as CSK lost by 1 run. Ambati Rayudu is another opener who has been in and out of the game for a while and hence there are question marks over his form.
Murali Vijay are Faf Du Plessis are the backup options in case if the top order becomes inconsistent. Mr. Consistent Suresh Raina at 3 will provide stability in the team.
The middle-order players like Kedar Jadhav, Narayan Jagadeesan have the ability to carry the game forward. Ambati Rayudu also can play in the middle order in case if CSK decides to play two overseas openers.
MS Dhoni will play an important role in finishing the innings. He has been finishing games for CSK for many years and there are some expectations even this year.
Ravi Jadeja is a 3D player and is in terrific form especially with the bat off-lately. His primary role is a spin bowler but is a very hand with bat and fielding also, hence he will be a utility player for CSK.
Dwane Bravo has been good with his bowling performance but has fitness issues. Shardul Thakur will be confident in this season especially after representing India recently.
He can even score quick runs in the slog overs with his long-handled batting. He is a decent bowler in T20’S.
Imran Tahir will lead the bowling department once again as even at this age his leg-spinners trouble even good batsmen. Piyush Chawla is another good addition to the bowling line-up. His experience will come into play. Karn Sharma also can play the role of backup for Chawla.
Deepak Chahar, the youngest player in the team swings the new ball and has the ability to bowl with the new ball and take early wickets. The captain usually bowls his (Chahar) all the 4 overs in the first spell itself.
Lungi Ngidi’s overs will be saved for death overs as he can bowl perfect yorkers and slower ones. Asif Ali is yet another exciting talent to watch out for.
Overall CSK looks like a balanced team and has all its bases covered. The only main concern will be the fitness level as many experienced players are injury-prone in this team.
