IPL 2021 SRH vs CSK: Predicted Playing XI for Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings are a team that hardly make any changes to their squad doesn’t matter even if they are losing badly. That’s the beauty of MS Dhoni and the environment in the CSK camp. While Ideally, they would have retained the same playing 11, the availability of first-choice Dwayne Bravo might lead to 1 change. 

If Dwayne Bravo is fit, Sam Curran may have to forcibly sit out. Even if Sam Curran has been a pillar for CSK in the last two years, the current form of Josh Hazlewood may prompt MS Dhoni to play Hazlewood above Curran. However, with CSK almost qualified, MS Dhoni may want to give confidence to Curran by playing him as he can play a vital role going forward.

Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (C&WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar & Josh Hazlewood. 

Unlike last season where Sharjah yielded high-scoring pitches, the 2021 edition has seen the exact opposite. Given the current state of pitches and the teams that are playing, expect this match to be a low-scoring encounter. Spinners or medium pacers might get the most assistance, and should be banked upon.
