In this article, we discuss the Chennai Super Kings Team 2020. No team has qualified for more IPL playoffs, than Chennai Super Kings- a staggering 10 times. These statistics just goes on to prove why they are considered to be the most consistent team in the history of the IPL. With a staggering win percentage, CSK has been three-time champions as well. Over the years they have nurtured talents like Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Subramanian Badrinath, Murali Vijay, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ravichandran Ashwin– all of whom would become established and renowned names in the world of Indian and International cricket.
CSK have never really believed in chop and change and have thus never really rotated their squad, keeping the main crux of their team constant for a considerable period. This year too the team poses both batting and bowling depth. However, most of the players in their team are on the wrong side of the ’30s, something which might hurt them at the later stages of the tournament when fatigue starts to show. Following is the list of players CSK have in their squad for IPL 2020, the Chennai Super Kings Team 2020.

In Murali Vijay, they have a tried and tested player who has had tremendous success over the last couple of years with this outfit. However, his inconsistent batting seems to be a cause of worry for the CSK upfront. To give him the company would be the young N Jagadeesan, the team’s domestic recruit, who has scored a significant amount of runs in the domestic tournaments like the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy.
In Faf Du Plessis they have someone to steady the ship when required and play the role of sheet anchor to perfection. The middle-order will be further solidified by the presence of Ambati Rayudu, who would be extremely crucial during CSK run chases. The young Ruturaj Gaikwad would be looking to provide the solidity as the floater in the batting order. This was batting of Chennai Super Kings Team 2020.
CSK has made a gamble having only one wicketkeeper-batsman in their squad this time. However, if it’s the very best there ever has been, CSK doesn’t have the liberty to complain. MS Dhoni– their talismanic captain and marquee player who has been the biggest force behind CSK ascent and success over the years, will be donning the dual role of the captain as well as the wicketkeeper.

CSK have packed their team with a set of well-known names who have been in the ruckus for quite some time and know-how to deal with difficult situations in this format. In Shane Watson and Dwayne Bravo, they inarguably have two of the best limited-overs all-rounders in the modern game.
To add to that they have the young and talented Sam Curran in their side. The left-arm all-rounder proved his mettle in the concluded test series against India and the Ashes where he decimated the opposition and emerged as one of the up and coming all-rounders in world cricket.
He would be a vital cog in the wheel for CSK this year. In Ravindra Jadeja, they have a power-packed performer with the bat, ball and in the field. The man with the golden arm, Kedar Jadhav would look to contribute lower down the order with his power hitting. All-rounders of Chennai Super Kings Team 2020.

CSK would be bolstering their seam bowling department with the inclusion of Josh Hazlewood, a premier fast bowler in the world today with his incisive length and wicket-taking abilities. They would also have the services of Lungi Ngidi, the strong South African fast bowler who impressed one and all. The Indian contingent of pacers would be led by Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur, two talented seam bowlers who can take wickets up front.
To give them the company would be the young KM Asif, who comes with a lot of promise. CSK have a strong spin attack with Imran Tahir and Mitchell Santner being among the foreign recruits. To give them company would be the experienced duo of Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma. They have roped in the young left-arm spinner Sai Kishore who would be eager to prove his worth to the team management. Bowlers of Chennai Super Kings Team 2020.
