First out in 2020, first playoff in 2021; This is CSK’s revenge

Presentation Ceremony after the final match of the 2020 IPL. Harsha Bhogle asked CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, “What more do you have to say to your fans?” In return, Dhoni gave a calm reply in his usual style. “We will definitely be back. This is where the Chennai Super Kings’ transition from the first outfield team in 2020 to the first team to reach the playoffs in 2021 began.

MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings have entered the play – offs for the 14th season of the IPL with nine wins from 11 matches. Chennai are the only team not to lose a single match in the second quarter. RunRate 1.002. Highest compared to other teams. These figures show that Dhoni’s age has captured the hearts of IPL fans.

Dhoni’s diamond weapons this time around are Rituraj Gaikwad, Faf Duplessis, Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar. Faf Duplessis, who is third in the run chase with 435 runs, and Rituraj, who is fifth in the table with 407 runs, have given a lot of energy to the team in the beginning.

Deepak Chahar, Dwayne Bravo and Shardul Thakur, who took 11 wickets each, were the mainstay of the bowling unit. Chahar is careful in taking wickets in the power play and Bravo is careful in wreaking havoc in the death overs. Thakur is also dangerous to give breakthroughs when the captain needs them. With the addition of Captain Dhoni’s tactics, Chennai will be complete.
