Suresh Raina is the only batsman to have scored 400+runs in all IPL seasons. Last Year he missed IPL due to personal reasons and this year he would like to have big comeback.
In IPL 2018,CSK used Ambati Rayudu as an opener and he showed his power in IPL 2018.As a result he was selected in Team India after his performance.
Ambati Rayudu showed good power-hitting abilities in IPL 2018 and scored Hundred against SRH and was among top run-scorers.
Although CSK has likes of Moeen Ali, N Jagadeesan and K Gowtham but after looking his performance in previous IPL he would be automated choice for CSK’s No.4.
MS Dhoni(c and wk)
Man who has lead CSK in all seasons. MSD is the man who has made many big players for CSK. MS Dhoni will be out to play after a gap of 6 Months. IPL is only league which Dhoni plays after retiring from International Cricket last year.
MS Dhoni would like to forget about previous season and like to end his IPL career with another trophy to his and Chennai Super Kings name.
Chennai Super Kings bought England all-rounder in IPL Auction for Rs 7 Crore. Moeen Ali is T20 specialist, good power-hitter and off-spinner.
It is looking that Moeen Ali is going to be very important player for CSK specially in home games.
Ravindra Jadeja is another CSK’s important player. Dhoni used him much as a batsman and is very dangerous bowler specially in turning pitches. But last season his performance was below par with the ball. Although, he stepped up with the bat and played the role of finisher.
His strike rate was 171 last year and played game some changing knocks.
Jadeja is a electric fielder in addition to batsman and bowler and is an asset for any team.
Sam Curran was find for Chennai Super Kings last year. CSK used Sam everywhere in both the departments.
Although, if we see his numbers last year, that doesn’t seems to be good but CSK know the value of Sam Curran in the side.
MS Dhoni has played great role for developing his standard as a bowler. Deepak provides breakthroughs in start and doesn’t allow batsmans to go after him.
Shardul Thakur is not as effective as Chahar, but his performances both with the bat and ball in past recent times could force CSK to include him in playing 11.
Thakur is a wicket-taker and good pinch-hitter.
Purple Cap winner of IPL 2019 didn’t get enough chance to play for CSK last season. But this season as Chennai Super Kings has released spin-bowlers Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla. It is likely that Tahir will get more chances this season.
