The Chennai Super Kings is quite an amazing and exciting franchise. They got associated with the biggest Superstar of Indian Cricket in the very first season of the IPL in the form of MS Dhoni. Chennai initially did not have an icon player but they broke their bank to make MSD their icon player. Players like Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, and Faf Du Plessis have only added to the glory of the franchise. The franchise always has had star players and the Chennai Super Kings are a regular feature in the playoffs of the IPL. Here is a look at the 4 players that Chennai Super Kings will retain in IPL 2021: –
Chennai Super Kings IPL 2021 Team: –
Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, N. Jagadeesan (wk), Robin Uthappa, MS Dhoni (c/wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, R. Sai Kishore, Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi, KM Asif, Moeen Ali, K Gowtham, Cheteshwar Pujara, M Harisankar Reddy, K. Bhagath Varma, C Hari Nishanth and Jason Behrendorff
Chennai Super Kings Will Retain MS Dhoni in IPL 2022: –
I do agree that MSD is not the Dhoni of 2008 or 2010, but Chennai Super Kings will definitely retain him. Chennai will retain MS Dhoni in IPL 2022 because they want MS to make a core team for the future. With the likes of Ruturaj and Shardul Thakur who are expected to play at least 7-8 years more, MS Dhoni will make a team. He might not be the best with the bat but his presence on the field is enough to empower the spirits of the team and to scare the opposition.
Chennai Super Kings Will Retain Ravindra Jadeja in IPL 2022: –
Chennai Super Kings will want to retain Ravindra Jadeja in IPL 2022. But the question will remain whether Jadeja wants to play for the Super Kings. He is a good captaincy material and hence other franchises will be looking for him. Jadeja is the real 3-dimensional player and his ability with the bat has been improving over the years. Hence, Chennai Super Kings will retain Ravindra Jadeja in 2022.
Chennai Super Kings Will Retain Ruturaj Gaikwad in IPL 2022: –
Before the start of the second leg, no one would expect that Ruturaj Gaikwad would be retained by the Chennai Super Kings. But with Indian openers being very much in demand Ruturaj Gaikwad is expected to be retained by the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2022. He has been in top form in the UAE leg of IPL 2021. His glorious cover drives and flick shots are talks of the town. His timing of the ball is a delight to watch.
Chennai Super Kings Will Retain Sam Curran in IPL 2022: –
The only possible foreign retention that Chennai Super Kings will make is Sam Curran. Sam Curran is currently not in the best of form but on his day, he can turn the game both with the bat and the ball. Sam Curran will be Chennai Super Kings’ last retention before IPL 2022.
