Chennai Super Kings have many big players in their team for Vivo IPL 2021. MS Dhoni, DJ Bravo, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu,
Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, and Robin Uthappa will show their potential for csk in IPL of 2021.moreover, Shardul Thakur can play dual role as he is much better batter now. So he can perform with the bat as well.
There are close clashes continually in the IPL 2021. Only the skilled performers can fulfill success invariably in this competition. Therefore, the abundant hardship that the CSK possesses can be one of their top strengths in this IPL.
Additional powerful point in the Chennai Super Kings squad is the abundance of quality all-rounders. Moeen Ali, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Sam Curran, DJ Bravo, Mitchell Santner, and Shardul Thakur have the skill to spin the game with their all-round grandness.
Weaknesses of CSK IPL 2021 – Age factor and Lack of match practice
While experience of csk makes them one of the best teams in IPL 2021. But the age aspect can backfire for CSK in IPL 2021.
Like last IPL, lots of injuries can be a headache for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2021 . Most senior players do not play international cricket regularly now.
In the last IPL, we have seen MS Dhoni struggling to middle the ball. Even Suresh Raina failed to impress in the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Ambati Rayudu and Robin Uthappa have not played international cricket for India for long time and Ravindra Jadeja is also nursing an injury.
So, Lack of match practice can be a serious issue for Chennai Super Kings this year.
