IPL 2021: CSK’s first match with Delhi Capitals on April 10 (CSK / Twitter)
India, March 31: Former cricketer and current commentator Aakash Chopra said that in this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) team Chennai Super Kings will face three challenges.
In a video posted on Facebook, Aakash Chopra said that senior and top players of Chennai Super Kings have not played competitive cricket for some time.
In such a situation, this will be a big challenge in front of the team. The IPL is starting from April 9. The inaugural match of the tournament will be played between the defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
A day later, on 10 April, Chennai Super Kings will play their first match with Delhi Capitals.
CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) and Suresh Raina retired from international cricket in August last year. He has not even played domestic cricket since then.
Ambati Rayudu played IPL 2020 last year. Chennai’s all-rounder and best fielder Ravindra Jadeja will return after recovering from injury.

Akash Chopra said, “Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Mahendra Singh Dhoni have not played international or competitive cricket. Jadeja is away from cricket because of an injury.
That is, four of the seven top performers are not in good form. They can feed Robin Uthappa and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Faf Duplecy is also fine, but what will happen to the remaining four players.
It will be a big challenge for them. ”Earlier this year, Chennai Super Kings bought Robin Uthappa from Rajasthan Royals. In the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Robin Uthappa scored 377 runs at an average of 75.40. Ruturaj Gaikwad scored a century off 109 balls against Himachal Pradesh.
Akash Chopra said, “CSK has to play first five matches at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai favors fast bowlers and hard hitters. It will also be a challenge for the spin duo of Chennai Super Kings. ”
