CSK Team 2020 Players List
Chennai Super Kings 2020 Team
IPL 2020 CSK players list is placed here. The Chennai Super Kings squad for the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League will be known after the IPL auction but one can be rest assured there will be changes to that batting line-up. The 2018 season champions have a lot of fans support and not just because they have won the IPL three times. For a side to have the presence of MS Dhoni as their captain given his idol worship, you expect the team to be as well-followed too. And their squad reflects the thinking of their skipper – a need to back most of the players who had won them the trophy last season. CSK squad 2020 is placed below.
Now, the Chennai Super Kings are known to not change things around. They have selected and backed their players irrespective of their age and more often than not, this tactic has come good during the tournament. This can be seen from how well they have gone about their business over the last two seasons, winning one title and finishing as runner-up in the previous year.
Under the stewardship of MS Dhoni, they have won three titles including one on their return from the ban but what they now might need is a change in tactics. The experienced but ageing batsmen from the previous two seasons would have gotten older and with Dhoni himself having struggled to get going in recent times the way it’s needed in this format of the game, he might need help around him.
What that means is someone like Ruturaj Gaikwad, already a part of the CSK squad could be given more chances. Or they could look at the Tamil Nadu Premier League to get their next set of batsmen if they don’t want to spend a lot on their international players.
Even a Sam Billings, who doesn’t get a lot of chances, or C Bishnoi could all be played.
The bigger question is who can they let go. Kedar Jadhav’s fitness will be monitored closely given how things have gone, it will remain to be seen if Shane Watson is interested in continuing his career after his near, match-winning knock last IPL final, and the likes of Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis and Dwayne Bravo should all get extensions.
Harbhajan Singh’s solid performances should allow him more chances, while Imran Tahir will bolster the overseas spin bowling department. If Lungi Ngidi is fit, he will be the side’s leading bowler while Deepak Chahar will continue to look to swing the ball early. IPL Chennai super kings players list 2020 is placed below.
