IPL 2024: Five solid reasons why Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are strong contenders to win the IPL 17th season: Solid top order: CSK has a strong top order with Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and recent addition Rachin Ravindra.

Additionally, experienced batsman Ajinkya Rahane, who has two IPL centuries while opening, adds further strength to the top order.

These players not only contribute with the bat but also provide valuable bowling options, giving captain MS Dhoni flexibility in the team combination. Fast bowling all-rounders Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar further add to the depth of the team.

Key Back-ups: The team’s bench strength is solid, which minimizes the impact of the unavailability of key players. Foreign all-rounders like Rachin Ravindra, Moeen Ali, and Mitchell Santner provide proven options.

CSK can choose between Mathiesha Pathirana and Mustafizur Rahman as overseas pacers, and they also have experienced Indian pacers in Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar.

Experienced middle-order: CSK’s middle-order has been strengthened by the addition of Rahane and Shivam Dubey with the addition of Daryl Mitchell.

Rahane and Dubey have been in good form since last season, with Mitchell’s presence adding more firepower. His ability to handle spin well makes him an asset on Indian pitches.

Spinners to look for home advantage: CSK will play half of its league matches at the Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) in Chennai, which is known to favor spinners. With a spin-bowling attack of Jadeja, Santner, Rachin, Moeen, and Mahesh Theekshana, CSK aims to make Chepauk their fort.
