Strengths of Chennai Super Kings 2018 Team:
Chennai Super Kings is arguably the strongest and the most successful team in the history of IPL. CSK has a high number of All-rounders and world class spinners in the form of Suresh Raina, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir and Mitchell Santner. The destructive batting order of CSK has always been a major role player for their victories and this year too they will be looking forward to their batsmen to deliver major victories. One of the most successful captains in the world MS Dhoni will be looking forward to reclaiming the title after two years of banishment.
Weaknesses of Chennai Super Kings 2018 Team:
Chennai’s bowling attack doesn’t seem to impress much. Chennai Super Kings could have opted for extra pace bowlers rather than going for a wicket-keeper batsman like Sam Billings. With Dhoni in the line-up and the restriction of playing only 4 overseas players, it is very unlikely that Billings might get a game here. Chennai just has a room of improvement in the bowling department but judging by their previous strategies, CSK is more likely to play more spinners.
Will Chennai Super Kings win IPL 2018??
Chennai Super Kings is one of the most decorated teams in the history of the IPL and it is very likely that they could win this year’s IPL. They have performed wonders before but they are making a comeback after 2 long years of banishment. The ban must have been too much for CSK’s mental attribute but it cannot break their spirit. The team is once again led by the most successful captain in the history of Indian cricket and he is not taking anything for granted, he’s here to grasp it. Chennai will mostly be relying upon their destructive batting and all rounding capabilities.
On the bowling department, they have a decent combination of pace like Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo and spin like Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir. If everything goes according to Dhoni’s plan, there is no denying that they will emerge as this year’s Champions.
