Four-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) haven’t shown a promising start in IPL 2022 under new skipper Ravindra Jadeja. Just ahead of the season, veteran player MS Dhoni announced to quit IPL captaincy and handed the baton to Jadeja.
CSK lost their first four games in a row before they defeated rivals Royal Challengers Bangalore by 23 runs to clinch their first win of the tournament. Jadeja and his men di lui edged out another arch-rival Mumbai Indians after MS Dhoni’s top-notch finish.
CSK needed 16 runs in four balls to win, Dhoni smashed Mumbai Indians pacer Jaydev Unadkat 6,4,2,4 to turn the game in the Yellow Army’s corner.
IPL 2022 CSK squad
CSK suffered heavy blows in the initial stage after bowling all-rounder Deepak Chahar got ruled out of IPL 2022 owing to a back injury in his rehabilitation period at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. New Zealand pace bowler Adam Milne sustained and followed Chahar out of the tournament.
Sri Lanka youngster Matheesha Pathirana, who has a similar bowling action to that of Lasith Malinga, replaced Milne in the CSK squad for IPL 2022. With 13 wickets in eight matches, Dwayne Bravo has picked the most wickets for the franchise this season so far. Bravo also surpassed Malinga’s tally of 170 wickets to become the overall highest wicket-taker in IPL.
CSK squad for IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, Robin Uthappa (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Devon Conway, Mitchell Santner, Dwaine Pretorious, Narayan Jagadeesan (wk), Tushar Deshpande, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, KM Asif, Mukesh Choudhary, Prashant Solanki, Simarjeet Singh, Bhagath Varma, Hari Nishanth, Subranshu Senapati, Matheesha Pathirana.
