Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful teams in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL). Besides three trophies and five second-place finishes, CSK has managed to make it through the playoffs in every season. Ahead of IPL 2020, the Chennai-based suffered massive blows after two of their most senior players, Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh withdrew from the tournament.
Chennai still has some powerhouse left in their camp and here are the top 5 Chennai Super Kings players to watch out for in IPL 2020.
1. MS Dhoni
The greatest ever CSK player, MS Dhoni will once again be a must-watch for them. He recently announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket, which means he will play with even less pressure in the upcoming season.
2. Shane Watson
With the pull out of Suresh Raina from the side, Shane Watson will have an added responsibility to perform for CSK. The Aussie has proved himself in the past, with sturdy performances in the crucial matches of the tournament.
3. Dwayne Bravo
The two-time ‘Purple Cap’ winner Dwayne Bravo is the go-to man for MS Dhoni when it comes to the bowling department. The UAE pitches will also complement his bowling style. This makes the West Indian, one of the Chennai Super Kings players to watch out for in IPL 2020.
4. Lungi Ngidi
Lungi Ngidi is the best overseas bowler in the current CSK squad, and skipper Dhoni backs him too. Ngidi has a tedious task of keeping himself free from injuries throughout the 14 games and chip in some early wickets for his side.
5. Piyush Chawla
Piyush Chawla emerged as the most expensive Indian player during the IPL auctions before the start of the 13th edition. With the absence of Bhajji from the side, Chawla is expected to lead the spin bowling department for CSK in IPL 2020.
