IPL 2020 This is the strength of CSK to become fourth time champion. Since the inception of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008, there has been a lot of consistency in the Chennai Super Kings team. The team has won the trophy three times in the history of the IPL while reaching the final eight times.
The team of Chennai Super Kings under the captaincy of former India World Champion Mahendra Singh Dhoni has always created problems for their rivals. In this 13th season of the league, all eyes will be on Dhoni, who had said goodbye to international cricket only last month.
Dhoni will land on the cricket field after more than a year. He played his last match in the semi-final match played against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup, but now fans are eagerly waiting to see Dhoni’s helicopter shot.

West Indies all-rounder and Chennai Super Kings star player Dwayne Bravo recently said that Dhoni will handle the changes in this team in the same way he handled the Indian team. According to Bravo, Dhoni will have less pressure than captaining the Indian team while captaining Chennai. When the media asked Bravo recently about Dhoni’s successor, he had said, I know that this has been going on in my mind for some time. I mean we all have to be separated at one time. It depends on when you retreat and to whom to handle it. Be it Raina or some youth.
The first match of this season of the league will be played between the current winners Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings in Abu Dhabi on 19 September. Due to covid-19, this time the IPL will be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from 19 September. Chennai’s eyes are on matching Mumbai Indians’ record of becoming champions for the fourth time and winning the title for the most time.
Strength of Chennai Super Kings:
Dhoni will be the strongest link of Chennai, as he is a part of the team since long time. He is credited with bringing out the best from his players and this quality can once again see CSK lifting the trophy on 10 November. Considering the spin-friendly conditions in the UAE, Dhoni will have world-class bowlers in the form of Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja, Mitchell Santner and Piyush Chawla. In batting, he has the experience of Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson and Bravo, who have the ability to win matches on their own.
CSK has always relied on a solid start. After this, Suresh Raina continued to perform well at number 3, but this time Raina has returned home and he will not play this season. In such a situation, someone else will have the responsibility to fill Raina’s deficiency. Similarly, veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh will also not play this season, which will affect the balance of the team slightly. He is not only a wicket-taking bowler, but can hit some good shots with the bat. The second thing that will worry CSK is the lack of match practice of their senior batsmen like Dhoni, Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu.
