Talking about the squad strength of Chennai Super Kings for this season, They do have some injury concerns like Devon Conway, Matheesha Pathirana and Mustafizur Rahman are dealing with it. CSK will begin their season under the captaincy of Ruturaj Gaikwad with the guidance of MS Dhoni. Rachin Ravindra is likely to open with Gaikwad in the absence of Devon Conway and inclusion of inform Daryl Mitchell makes the squad even more stronger.

On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s fortune will totally depend on the performances of Maxwell, Virat, Faf, Green, Alzarri and Siraj so all these players need to step up against chennai at MA Chidambaram Stadium if they have to win this match.
