Player Analysis

Ruturaj Gaikwad showed consistency with his bat in the 2020 IPL tournament and the CSK team expect him to show the same consistency in the 2021 IPL. Sam Curran was a big positive for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2019 and he will be looking at another brilliant season for the CSK franchise in the upcoming IPL. There are a few superstars in the training camp in Chennai and all eyes are on captain MS Dhoni who has not played cricket in the IPL.  With him CSK will have a deadly duo of Deepak Chahar and Lungi Ngidi. The team will also have the experience of Imran Tahir in the spin-bowling attack. The team has not made many changes this season, but this time they have Suresh Raina, who will give the team more power. 

Conclusion

No doubt the Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful teams in the IPL, having won the title three times and relying more on experienced players than young players. On the other hand, the biggest weakness of the CSK team is the loophole in its fielding unit, since most of its players are in their 30s and therefore have a lower fielding level than other teams in the IPL. With players such as Dhoni, Raina, Rayudu, and Tahir retiring from international cricket and not competing in domestic matches, the lack of game time could harm the team.
