(CSK) had a dismal show in 2020 (IPL 2020) as it struggled throughout the season and failed to make it to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

CSK skipper looked completely off colour, which added to the team's woes. in IPL 2021, CSK would look to revive its fortunes as the side managed to bring some new faces to the side.

What's even better is will have the services of T20 expert Suresh Raina who had pulled out of IPL 2020.

With Harbhajan released, CSK managed to include Krishnappa Gowtham and Moeen Ali in the team at the IPL mini-auction held in February. Besides, they would also have a reliable batsman in Cheteshwar Pujara.

Ruturaj Gaikwad looks promising for the side and with Ambati Rayudu, Sam Curran, and Dwayne Bravo, CSK has enough punch to take on any opposition. Other than good spinners in Ravindra Jadeja, Krishnappa Gowtham, Moeen Ali, and Imran Tahir, CSK has Lungi Ngidi, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur in the pace attack.
