The South Africa veteran batsman and Chennai Super Kings opener Faf du Plessis has been suffering from a groin injury prior to the start of the second phase of IPL 2021. Du Plessis has been one of the key players at the top of the order for Chennai Super Kings as he amassed 320 runs in 7 games in the first phase of IPL 2021 in India at an average of 64. He formed an excellent opening pair alongside youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad.

They do have some options waiting in the wings to replace Faf Du Plessis in the squad and here are 3 players who can replace Faf Du Plessis in CSK playing XI.
