CSK has been the most consistent side in the IPL. They have progressed to the playoffs in each season they have played in. Just before the start of this year’s IPL, they have been dented by some massive setbacks. 13 members of their team tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Moreover, two of their important players in the likes of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh pulled out of the IPL citing personal reasons. (CSK 2020)

However, they are still one of the strong favourites to win the IPL 2020 Trophy. The biggest reason is MS Dhoni. The Ranchi man has led his team to three IPL titles. He has been one of the most important reasons behind his side’s success.
CSK will again bank on Dhoni’s leadership, wicketkeeping skills and finishing skills to win the IPL 2020 trophy. They lost the IPL 2019 final against Mumbai Indians by just 1 run. Hence, they will be looking to put up a dominant show in this yea’s IPL. (CSK 2020)
Dhoni has already announced his retirement from national colours. So, now he will only be seen playing in the yellow jersey. MS Dhoni has scored 4432 runs in 190 matches in the IPL. He has an impressive batting average of 42.20. MS Dhoni possesses the power to win matches for his team single-handedly from crunch situations. (CSK 2020)
