11. Josh Hazlewood
Largely known for his heroics in the longest format, Hazlewood has done well in the powerplay overs barring the last game.
10. Deepak Chahar
Deepak Chahar has been impressive with the new ball this season thanks to his ability to generate swing from the flattest of decks
9. Shardul Thakur
The other fast bowler is Shardul Thakur who just can’t do anything wrong these days. He generally operates in the middle and his knack of taking regular wickets has been a boon for CSK.
8. Dwayne Bravo
As far as Bravo is concerned, he has been MS Dhoni’s go-to man in the death overs. He takes wickets in that period alongside keeping the scoring rate down. He has also played some handy cameos.
7. Ravindra Jadeja
As far as Ravindra Jadeja, the southpaw has been sensational in all three departments. While the left-arm spinner has kept batters quiet, his striking in end overs has also helped CSK.
6. Moeen Ali
Moeen Ali has been aggressive regardless the situation of the same. Keeping the last game aside, Ali has also been economical with his off-spins
5. Ambati Rayudu
Ambati Rayudu has indeed been the most impressive of the three. He has played some substantial knocks this season and would like to shine in the playoffs as well.
4. MS Dhoni
As far as Dhoni is concerned, it would be safe to state that the right-handed batter isn’t the player he was once. However, he continues to do well in the leadership and wicketkeeping department.
3. Suresh Raina
Hailed as Mr. IPL, Suresh Raina started off the season with a brilliant half-century. However, runs dried for him after that as he struggled to get run in slow pitches. An injury also kept him away from the last two games.
2. Ruturaj Gaikwad
The young batter troubled several prominent bowlers and even scored a hundred in the tournament. Openers Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad have indeed been instrumental in CSK’s stellar campaign this season.
1. Faf du Plessis
The former South African opener did what he’s best known for.While Du Plessis has been a proven star of this format.
