Middle-order: Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni
Moeen Ali and Ambati Rayudu have provided crucial cameos this season for CSK. The duo has ensured that CSK score runs at a decent rate in the middle overs. Moeen Ali scored 23 off 18 in the last game, while Rayudu scored 32 off 22 deliveries.
Suresh Raina has looked a pale shadow of himself in the tournament. His struggle against bouncers has been quite evident. Raina, however, played an unbeaten 17-run knock off 10 balls in the last game and that would give him some confidence. MS Dhoni too added some runs under his name in the last game which will give him confidence.
