The team will be looking at today for the CSK IPL Team Preview is our very own Chennai Super Kings. We will be first looking at the highlights of the Chennai Super Kings squad for 2021.
- Chennai Super Kings. have bought two off-spinners at an expensive price. It’s Krishnappa Gowtham and Moeen Ali. Krishnappa Gowtham is the most expensive player bought by Chennai Super Kings this year, at a rate of Rs 9.25 crores.
- Other than that, there’s Moeen Ali. Moeen Ali has an amazing ability to be both an off-spinner and a left-handed batsman with a good strike rate. It’s the same with Krishnappa Gowtham. So they definitely are highlights in the IPL 2021 squad.
Other than both of them, there’s Suresh Raina who is often referred to as Mr. IPL and is an extraordinary batsman. According to my, he’s one of the best players in IPL. It’s important to see how he plays this year. The addition of Suresh Raina to the Chennai Super Kings team for IPL2021 is a major highlight. Don’t forget that Suresh Raina is an all-rounder who can bowl a few overs of off spins and is an extraordinary fielder. This season Chennai Super Kings are to play their first five games in Mumbai. The wickets in Mumbai have both pace and bounce. It’ll be interesting to see how Chennai Super Kings adapts to these conditions.
Originally, Chennai Super Kings have always been a spin-oriented team. The batsmen have played really well in the slow-row tracks. They have played well against the spinners. But they won’t have these conditions in Mumbai. So it’ll be an interesting factor for Chennai Super Kings to be aware of. Another noteworthy thing is they have brought in Robin Uthappa from Rajasthan Royals through the transfer window. So it’ll be interesting to see who opens for Chennai Super Kings.
Last year towards the end of the season, Faf du Plessis and RuturajGaikwad were the openers. They performed really well for Chennai Super Kings. Due to the addition of Robin Uthappa, a question of who will be the openers arises. This is an interesting issue because Robyn Uthappa has played amazingly well as an opener, in Rajasthan Royals and for the entirety of his IPL career. So who will open the first match for Chennai Super Kings? The amount of players with experience in Chennai Super Kings is great, especially for top-order batting. There’s Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu alongside Robin Uthappawho has joined this year. So the Top 4 seem really experienced. This is a big strength for Chennai Super Kings.
For the last two years
these four batsmen despite their experience, there an average strike rate is 126. So the lesser strike rate amongst these top-order batsmen is a concern for Chennai Super Kings. Will they make it right this year? The strength of Chennai Super Kings for this year is all-rounders, like always. They have cricketers who can perform really well in batting, bowling, and fielding. For example, there’s DwayneBravo, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja alongside this year’s Krishnappa Gowtham and Moeen Ali. So there’s Shargul Thakur who has been performing really well. So they have such multidimensional cricketers.
They have a lot of all-rounders, giving them a lot of bowling and batting options. This is a huge strength for Chennai Super Kings IPL 2021 squad. Mahendra Singh Dhoni prefers a lot of all-rounders. He’s done the same for the squad of IPL 2021 too. When we talk about Chennai Super Kings, how can we not mention CaptainCool Mahendra Singh Dhoni? He’s a key player. He has always been a key player for Chennai Super Kings. In fact, whenever he performs well, Chennai Super Kings as a team does very well too. For the past two years, we can say that his batting is not been up to his usual standards.
Though his career strike rate is more than 140, his strike rate for the last two years has been at 116. In every four overs, he has batted a six only once in 24 balls. So his form is definitely a concern for Chennai Super Kings. If he sets into a great batting rhythm, form, and fitness, it will be a huge boost to the team Chennai Super Kings. So Mahendra SinghDhoni’s form is very important and he is a key player for Chennai Super Kings. It’s been like that all these years and this year is no different. The Betway players to watch out for in Chennai Super Kings for the season of 2021 are…
I have selected all-rounders. The first player to watch out for is Shardul Thakur. Shardul Thakur is in great form and he has been performing both batting and bowling really well for the Indian Team. For Chennai Super Kings this year, it seems like Shargul Thakur is a player to watch out for. Sam Curran is an amazing foreign youngster, who is a left-arm fast bowler and is an amazing left-handed batsman. I think he holds great value. This year without the home advantage, the value of this fast bowling all-rounder has increased a lot. Sam Curran is one of the players to watch out for in Chennai Super Kings. Ravindra Jadeja has been performing really well in recent times.
Ravindra Jadeja an important part of the Chennai Super Kings team 2021
has performed well for Chennai too. He can bowl, bat and field, and is a three-dimensional cricketer. He didn’t play cricket for a while due to his injury but he’ll be back in this IPL, with a lot of energy and freshness. So he’s a player to watch out for in Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2021.
Even though Chennai SuperKings have been three-time champions, this year certain things do cause a bit of worry. We will be looking at the concerning factors for Chennai Super Kings. This year, there are no home matches for Chennai Super Kings. That is, they won’t play in Chennai. The home record for Chennai Super Kings is extraordinary. But this year, they won’t have that advantage and that’s definitely a negative point. Chepauk Stadium has been a fortress for Chennai Super Kings.
The pin-oriented attack from the bowlers with the large boundaries on the side has provided for favorable conditions. Chennai Super Kings won’t have it this year. So let’s wait and see how the Chennai Super Kings team will use these conditions. But out of all this, the biggest concern for Chennai Super Kings, according to me, is the lack of match practice. All the players, including the key players, haven’t played a lot of matches. Many players are those who have retired from International Cricket. They’ve also had injury concerns in the past.
Even if you’re a big, international cricketer, if you don’t play the matches, it will be a big question of concern to handle matching fitness and pressure. Any player you pick, whether it’s Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, DwayneBravo, Ambati Rayudu, or Robin Uthappa. They haven’t played a lot of cricket. They’re not in the thick of the action. So for a big, competitive tournament like IPL, will they immediately just to the matches, and do they have enough form and fitness? This is a question of concern for Chennai Super Kings.
Let’s wait and watch as the exciting matches of IPL 2021 await us.
