After their worst season ever in the IPL last year, where they did not make it to the IPL Play-offs for the first time in their history, the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings would like to regroup and look for a better season this time around.
What helps their cause is the return of their star batsman Suresh Raina, who they dearly missed last season. Raina had pulled out of IPL 2020 just days before its start due to ‘personal reasons’.
What could help the CSK this time around is also the fact that they were the first amongst the franchises to start training. MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu and a few other players from the CSK got together in Chennai in the first week of March and have had time to train together.
Delhi Capitals will be led by Rishabh Pant, after their skipper Shreyas Iyer had to undergo a shoulder surgery after sustaining an injury during the limited-overs matches against England.
Pant has had a fantastic few months of international cricket, where he was the star player for India in the series against Australia and England, and it will be exciting to see how he leads the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021.
