The three-time champions and five-time-runners up, Chennai Super Kings had a forgettable outing in the last edition – IPL 2020 – where they failed to qualify for the knockout stage for the first time in the history of the league.

IPL 2021 Phase 2: Three Key players for CSK
- Moeen Ali
The England all-rounder was the star performer for the side during Phase 1 and something similar is expected from him in the UAE leg too.

- Sam Curran
Sam Curran is a key all-rounder for the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings.

- Faf du Plessis
Chennai Super Kings batting mainstay Faf du Plessis is the third leading run-getter in the IPL 2021 phase 1. The former South Africa skipper has amassed 320 runs in 7 innings at an average of 64.00, including 4 fifties. He is a vital cog in the batting lineup for CSK.
