The second edition of IPL 2021 is all set to begin from 19th September. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have already begun their preparations for the tournament. CSK is the second team after Mumbai Indians to have departed from India for the preparations. Chennai Super Kings reached UAE on 13th August and immediately went into 6-day mandatory quarantine. As per the reports, the quarantine period is over and they have already begun their training camp at ICC Academy in Dubai for the second phase of the tournament. CSK will kick off its IPL 2021 phase 2 against Mumbai Indians in Dubai and would be looking to continue its dominance.
Chennai Super Kings is the only franchise, for whom no player is unavailable for the second leg of the tournament. They will be playing with the full squad in hand.
CSK Squad: MS Dhoni (C), Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ambati Rayudu, Imran Tahir, Josh Hazlewood, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Lungi Ngidi, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, K Gowtam, Sam Curran, Robin Uthappa, Mitchell Santner, Jagadeesan N, KM Asif, R Sai Kishore, C Hari Nishaanth, M Harisankar Reddy, K Bhagath Verma
Though, Faf du Plessis’ availability is still a concern. The South African cricketer made himself unavailable for the entirety of The Hundred tournament due to concussion issues.
