Chennai Super Kings produced an excellent performance in the game against Mumbai Indians when the IPL 2021 resumed in Dubai and they recovered really well after an early panic. Ruturaj Gaikad’s masterclass at the top and his finishing abilities were something for the selectors to note and he might be an excellent option in the coming years.
Ambati Rayudu and Deepak Chahar have been closely followed by the CSK after their injury scare in the game against Mumbai Indians. Both players are expected to be fit for an important game against the RCB. CSK is comfortable at the moment with 12 points at the top and it is almost certain that they will make it to the playoffs from here.
