Chennai Super Kings, under the leadership of 40-year-old MS Dhoni, is ready to rock the IPL (IPL 2021). Chennai’s team is currently in second place in the IPL points table. Under Dhoni’s leadership, Chennai reached the final 8 times and won the IPL title thrice. For this reason, CSK is being considered the strongest contender for the title. The team of Chennai has won the IPL title in the year 2010, 2011, and 2018. Chennai will have to win at least 3 matches to qualify for the knockouts.
Experienced players will set sail for CSK
The Chennai team, which lost its first match in IPL 2021, won five consecutive matches. Chennai was defeated by Mumbai in the last match before the cancellation of IPL. The first match of the second phase of IPL 2021 between Mumbai and Chennai will be played on 19 September. The strong side of CSK is that they have experienced players who have been leading the team in difficult situations. Apart from this, Dhoni’s inspirational leadership is another positive aspect of the team. Faf du Plessis scored 320 runs in the first leg of IPL 2021 with the help of four half-centuries. Apart from him, Ruturaj Gaikwada was also seen in good form. At the same time, Suresh Raina, Moeen Ali Ambati Rayudu, and Ravindra Jadeja were also successful in scoring half-centuries.
CSK is full of all-rounders
The strength of CSK is its all-rounders. All-rounders like Moeen Ali, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Sam Karen are the lifeblood of CSK. Dwayne Bravo in the CPL and recently in the India-England Test series, Jadeja, Ali, and Thakur have performed well. At the same time, Karen was the highest wicket-taker for CSK before IPL 2021. These five all-rounders can play together in the team.
