Chennai Super Kings have the tendency to make the best out of anything available and their talisman MS Dhoni has one of the main reasons behind the success in overall IPL history and in IPL 2021. Chennai Super Kings failed to progress to the playoffs for the first time in IPL 2020 and it was a heartbreaking moment for all their fans. However, it has become moved to the past and they are in a good position in IPL 2021 with 10 points already.

Chennai Super Kings mostly rotated their overseas players in IPL 2021 and the veterans like DJ Bravo and  Imran Tahir played just a few games while the youngtsers like Sam Curran were encouraged a lot. They also had to go for another overseas fast bowler and they have the options in Lungi Ngidi and Josh Hazlewood. It will be interesting to see their combination and here is the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Squad, Schedule, Updated Time And Venue.
