The eight-times Indian Premier League finalists and three-times champion Chennai Super Kings will be back once again in the upcoming season of IPL. Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni would like to lead his team to yet another title.
They bought 4 players in this year’s auction as the Super Kings acquired Piyush Chawla, Australian pacer Josh Hazelwood, English all-rounder Sam Curran and Sai Kishore. However, they will miss the service of veteran Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, who pulled out owing to personal reasons.
Chennai has a good core and would like to continue their form in this IPL as well. Chennai Super Kings play their first game against Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
Let’s have a look at the Predicted Playing XI of Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2020:
1. Shane Watson
Former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson will continue opening for Chennai Super Kings and would look to continue his form in the IPL. Watson who didn’t bowl a single ball in the previous edition of IPL will let his bat do the talking. Watson’s form for CSK has been very good as the former Australian all-rounder scored a magnificent century in the finals of the 2018 edition of IPL against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
He almost took CSK home in the finals of the previous edition of the cash-rich league, where the Australian batsman was batting with an injury. He will once again open with his South African partner Faf Du Plessis to give CSK a good start.
