Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL 2020

If there is one Indian Premier League team that can claim to be the second favourite team of every cricket fan in the country, if not the first, then it is Chennai Super Kings. The team has MS Dhoni, their charismatic captain, to thank for this as he’s not just the adopted son of Chennai but the whole country.

Moreover, with the kind of success, they have had over the years with 3 titles and a playoff place in every season they have participated in, then they truly deserve the fan base they have. They have featured in 8 finals in the 10 seasons they have played, which proves how incredibly consistent the team has been. The team filled with veterans will be hoping to add to their rich tally and once again go all the way in IPL 2020.

Last Year’s Performance

The ageing team, with the likes of MS Dhoni, Shane Watson, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis, and others managed to feature in a second successive final last season, having won the title in 2018. However, they lost 2019 final by just 1 run, making it one of the most exciting IPL finals of all time, if not the best. It was a collective team performance from CSK, with Imran Tahir taking home the purple cap with 26 scalps to his name and everyone else coming up with important contributions at crucial stages. 

What can we Expect from CSK in the 2020 Season

CSK is going in with pretty much the same squad this season as well, with a few important additions in the form of Sam Curran, Piyush Chawla, and Josh Hazlewood. As always, Dhoni has kept his team’s core intact and given the team’s track record, the least we can expect from them is the qualification to the playoffs. They will again rely on their spin bowling department along with the potent all-rounders in the squad to churn out the results.

Current Squad of CSK

The list of 2020 CSK players are:

  • Narayan Jagadeesan
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • KM Asif
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • M Vijay
  • MS Dhoni (c)
  • Josh Hazlewood
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • Harbhajan Singh
  • Karn Sharma
  • Piyush Chawla
  • Ambati Rayudu
  • Suresh Raina
  • Imran Tahir
  • Deepak Chahar
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Shardul Thakur
  • Mitchell Santner
  • Dwayne Bravo
  • Lungi Ngidi
  • Sam Curran
  • Monu Kumar
  • Shane Watson and Sai Kishore

Many of the former CSK players have been retained for the 2020 season. For fantasy cricket players, it is important to check out the list of playing 11 before building the IPL fantasy league squad for CSK matches.

Latest Acquisitions

CSK bought the least number of players in the December auctions, as they went in with a small purse. Piyush Chawla, Josh Hazlewood, Sam Curran, and R Sai Kishore were the players CSK bought. Piyush Chawla was the biggest surprise, not only for the fact that CSK, who already have 5 frontline spinners in the team picked him but also for his whopping price tag of Rs. 6.75 crores.

CSK and IPL have a fruitful relationship and it would probably continue in the coming season as well. No matter what team they have, CSK always seems to find a way to qualify for the playoffs. However, with the old warhorses getting one more year older, it would be interesting to see how they perform this time around.
