CSK is the first IPL franchise team to land in Dubai for the conclusion of the 31 matches which were suspended at the beginning of May this year when a few players tested positive and it was a wise decision taken by BCCI to Suspend the IPL at that time in the interest and we’ll being of all players.
CSK was placed second with 10 points after the completion of their first leg with five wins and two losses with their net run rate being the best at 1.263 among all teams.
Following a disillusioning year last year in UAE in the twelfth version where they neglected to fit the bill for the plays off interestingly, they began well in the thirteenth release and seemed as though one of the groups to beat as the entirety of their players glanced in a great structure.
The expansion of Moeen Ali in their crew gave their group the right equilibrium and reckless which was deficient with regards to last year. Additionally, the beginning given by their openers Faf Du Plessis and Rituraj Gaikwad was likewise extremely instrumental in the group getting off to a romping start in a large portion of their games which the group had missed in the last release. Also, every one of their bowlers is its speed and twist bowlers were on target particularly Deepak Chahar and Ravindra Jadeja.
On a one to one chat with Mr. Cricket UAE Anis Sajan who is also a Managing Director of Danube Group & Team Mentor of Bengal Tigers in T10 Cricket League, Hussey, the batting coach of CSK, when asked what separates the CSK franchise from the rest
“CSK franchise is like a family and everyone in the team from the players to the support staff are treated in the same way,” he said candidly.
Hussey added, “I have fond memories of CSK winning two back-to-back titles when they beat first Mumbai Indians in 2010 and then Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2011. CSK surprised everyone in 2018 when they won their third title beating Sunrisers Hyderabad when in that year they were called the Dads Army. All eyes with being once again on their cool Captain MS Dhoni, who will be itching to take CSK to their fourth title in the UAE and prove that last year’s IPL in the UAE was a blip. Every franchise is popular in the IPL but CSK is one franchise that is loved by fans around the world because of one Man the Thala, Mahendra Singh Dhoni”
They start their campaign in Dubai on 19th September in Dubai with a mouthwatering contest against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians. The last time they met in the first leg of the tournament was a high-scoring humdinger where Pollard pulled off an amazing win for Mumbai Indians chasing 218.
