Chennai Super Kings will start as one of the contenders for the title in IPL 2021 in UAE as they are currently in an excellent position and do have a lot of advantages over others. The only thing they will be worried about is their poor stint in UAE in the previous edition and they will be hoping for a better season this time around.
CSK has all the goods in the tank with depth in their batting but their Indian bowling still lacks some game-changers like Jasprit Bumrah. They do have the services of Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar who are excellent bowlers, but they are far more inconsistent which keeps the captain under pressure. Here is the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Updated Squad, Schedule, Time, And Venue
