Chennai Super Kings Announce Retentions for IPL 2021

CSK have retained Suresh Raina, who didn't feature in the previous edition due to personal reasons.

The Chennai Super Kings franchise have announced their retentions for the upcoming edition of the IPL as they look to rebuild their team just like Rajasthan Royals side. After having qualified for playoffs in every season, a disaster struck the MS Dhoni led franchise as they finished 7th in the 2020 season which was held in UAE.

With the 2021 season likely to be MS DHoni’s last season, they will also be looking to groom a new leader who would take over the reigns from Chennai’s long standing Thala MS Dhoni.
