This is the team preview of the mighty Chennai Super Kings, for IPL 2020. Hands down, CSK holds a legendary position in IPL’s history. The powerful team has always fought its way into qualifying for the playoffs and their dramatic return in 2018 after the unfortunate events for both franchise and fans, will always remain unforgettable. After a close call as Runner Ups in IPL 2019, CSK along with Captain Cool MS Dhoni, stands tall on the top as a wave of emotions strike the fans, as they say “THALAIVAN IRUKKINDRAN KALANGATHE.“
CSK proved to the world that age is just a number by playing their own game with experience. When the world thought, T20 is a format for youngsters, CSK shattered this belief as the Team’s Average Age is 32 years, proving that experience is wealth even in the field. On the other hand, no one’s ever played a game for more than 250+ days, but due to the pandemic condition, every player around the globe is facing similar problems.
It is going to be a big loss for the team as, Mr. IPL (Suresh Raina) has returned to India due to personal reasons and will not be playing the entire season. He has played almost 99 percent of the game for CSK without fail and has shown exemplary results, but missing a full tournament creates a huge vacuum in No. 3 spot. Yes, there are players like Murali Vijay, Rayadu. But, no one can replace Raina in that spot. Fans will really miss watching Chinna Thala storm the field. Also there are some huge expectations down the order with players like Sam Curran, Mitchel Santner, Lungi Ngidi, Josh Hazelwood.
Lets Make our Probable X1 for CSK IPL 2020 :
Mahendra Singh Dhoni(c), Faf Du Plessis, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayadu, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi.
