CSK IPL Team 2020 Players List, Squad: It been over a year since MS Dhoni last featured in a cricket match. And the wait will finally be over as the legendary wicketkeeper-batsman gets ready to play his first match in the upcoming edition of IPL. Dhoni-led CSK will aim for a fourth IPL crown as they kick-off their campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener.

Despite all the Covid safety measures, IPL was struck with the deadly virus with CSK being a sole victim. The franchise had 13 members tested positive after their arrival in UAE. The list of positives included frontline seamer Deepak Chahar and batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad. Despite the setback, the duo are fine and have now resumed their training.

Raina and Harbhajan opt out

The team, however will miss the services of veteran cricketers Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh this season. The duo pulled out from the contest earlier this month, citing personal reasons.

Raina’s departure from the CSK camp last month was the most high-profile departure. The 33-year-old, though initially having reached UAE with his teammates, pulled out of the season for personal reasons. However, he later said that he may return to the team soon.

Harbhajan became the second CSK player to pull out, also due to personal reasons. With two senior players Raina and Harbhajan out, CSK have been hit the hardest. In the spin department, Imran Tahir, Mitchell Santner and Piyush Chawla will be looking to step up in Harbhajan’s absence.
