    CSK Team Analysis

    Making a comeback this year, CSK retained their star players- Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja prior to the auction and used the RTMs on Faf Du Plessis and Dwayne Bravo.

    CSK played the waiting game at the auction to shape a well-balanced squad. They started off slow with only experienced players like Harbhajan, Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu.

    Though losing out on Ashwin was a huge disappointment, the franchise immediately filled the squad with good spinners like Imran Tahir and Karn Sharma.

    Similarly, they have a level-headed batting line up with strong opening pair and middle order.

    With plenty of experience, the CSK team squad will strive to win the IPL trophy once more.
