CSK, the 2nd most successful team in the history of IPL, will be changing the overall squad after this season of IPL. But for this season, they have once again put their faith on the experienced guys like Rayudu,Watson,Bhajji.
They lost to their arch-rival Mumbai Indians on the final of IPL 2019 by the barest of margin. Dhoni-led side has provided a plethora of consistency in the world’s toughest league in the world. This time too, with few new faces, they will look to cement their place in the top 4 and may even draw the total number titles with MI.
They roped in the young english all-rounder Sam Curran at about 5cr and also managed to buy Piyush Chawla at well above 7cr. Surprisingly, Josh Hazlewood also made it to their squad. However, no matter the strength of CSK’s team on paper, they manage to do just well in IPL.
Let’s look at the possible lineup of CSK for the 13th season of IPL:
- Shane Watson
- Ambati Rayudu/ Ruturaj Gaikwad
- Suresh Raina
- Sam Curran
- MS Dhoni (C & WK)
- Kedar Jadhav
- Dwayne Bravo
- Ravindra Jadeja
- Shardul Thakur/ Piyush Chawla
- Deepak Chahar
- Imran Tahir/ Lungi Ngidi
CSK has a numerous backup players and that too a quality one. Players such as Sai Kishore, Harbajan Singh, Du Plesis would make a stronger bench for them. They have replacement available for almost all player except Dhoni so they possess a pretty balanced side. With such squad, the Whistle-podu side might again enter into the final and make it for the 4th time.
