The second match of IPL 2021 has started between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In this match, the new Delhi captain Rishabh Pant won the toss and decided to bowl first. In the absence of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma, the Delhi team has almost completely landed with a new pace attack.
But speaking from the point of view of Chennai Super Kings, in this IPL 2021, seeing this team, the senses of all the other teams are blown away. After that, it is going to be a great headache for all the teams that have to make a definite strategy before the match starts, for every team which goes into the match against Chennai. Let’s know what is in this article, this time in Chennai team, which has become a cause of concern for the rest of the teams.
The team of Chennai Super Kings, headed by former senior Indian captain and veteran wicket-keeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, looks quite deadly in IPL 2021. The main reason for this is the presence of cricketers in the team who have the ability to turn the match, both bowling and batting, at any time.
If we talk about the team’s line-up in the first match against Delhi Capitals, then in this match, Chennai’s playing XI is seen batting up to number 11. The same thing can cause trouble for not only the Delhi Capitals but also for the bowlers of the teams playing ahead in this season against Chennai Super Kings.
If we look at the playing eleven of Chennai Super Kings in the first match, then the top order of the team has the best batsmen like Rituraj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu. Apart from this, the team itself has captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, senior Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and English all-rounder Moin Ali.
If you look at the lower order of the team, then players like Caribbean all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, Indian bowling all-rounder Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar. In this context, it can be said without any hesitation that the last player in Dhoni’s team is superb batting and firepower.

Let me tell you that the 13th season of IPL for 3-time IPL champion Chennai Super Kings (Chennai Super Kings) played in Dubai last year did not go well at all. This was the first season when the team was eliminated from the tournament after losing in the league round.
In the auction for IPL 2021 this year, the Chennai Super Kings team had added senior English all-rounder Moeen Ali and Indian domestic cricketer Gautham but the franchise had senior Indian Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara ( Cheteshwar Pujara) was surprised by everyone’s purchase.
After this, it will be seen now whether the team of Chennai Super Kings will be able to forget the bitter experience of last year and whether this time also they will have to face the same disappointment as last year.
