Chennai Super Kings IPL 2023 Squad - Players to Watch out

The Chennai Super Kings do not have a pool of match winners, still it is one of the most successful teams in the Indian Premier League. This is made possible because the CSK players list consists of a large number of consistent performers, who are led by one of the best captains Mahendra Singh Dhoni. There are many prominent players to watch out in the CSK 2023 squad, such as:

#1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni

4679595.jpg (2867×2016)

The skipper of the team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one of the driving forces behind the team. He has led the team to 4 IPL championships with an entry into the playoffs in 11 out of the 13 seasons the team played. This number is still the highest by any franchise. Dhoni is the second-highest run scorer for CSK and therefore, he is expected to bring in his experience to play and make CSK win back the title this year.

#2. Ruturaj Gaikwad

wp8674424.jpg (1200×675)

This young man has been a sensation for the yellow franchise. Gaikwad has featured in just 3 IPL seasons thus far and he is already up in the ranks, considered as one of the most dangerous opening batsmen in the competition. He emerged as the leading-run scorer for the franchise in the previous two seasons. Ruturaj even backed the orange cap in the 2021 season with 635 runs under his belt, which shows his potential to score big. CSK will heavily rely on him to go all guns blazing and give the team a good impetus right from the start of their batting innings.

#3. Deepak Chahar

wp9880687.jpg (1200×900)

Deepak Chahar has been one of the most improved cricketers for the Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni often uses him to bowl out in the first 7 overs with the new ball. On the back of some brilliant new ball bowling in the IPL, the older Chahar brother also got into the national side, thanks to his splendid performance in the IPL. Chahar is an experienced campaigner, who is lethal with the new ball and CSK will hope for him to strike in the powerplay and keep things tight against the opponent.

#4. Ambati Rayudu

13rayudu-century2.jpg (670×454)

Since the time Rayudu joined the franchise, he saw a huge transformation in his career when he got the opportunity to play up the order. In his first season with CSK, Rayudu scored 602 runs including a century and 3 fifties. He has been the side’s regular performer with great athleticism on the field too. One of the veterans of the IPL, he will be expected to bind the team’s batting order and go big with the bat.

#5. Ravindra Jadeja

HD-wallpaper-jadeja-csk-whistle-podu-yellow.jpg (800×966)

This man is undoubtedly one of the most lethal all rounders in the game. Jadeja has a great knack of picking up wickets with his left-arm spin, which is also handy when the side needs to exert pressure on the batting of the opposition. His batting down the order has produced match-winning performances for the team over the years and they’ll bank on him to bring in his A-game as CSK heads into the tournament with a 5th title in sight.
