11. Rajvardhan Hangargekar

It is time that the U-19-star Rajvardhan is given his due with the ball. CSK has given a lot of new faces an opportunity to showcase their talent, and the young lad will be one such.

10. Maheesh Theekshana

Theekshana can prove useful in the powerplay and can help in getting those vital wickets in the first six overs of the game, giving CSK a good chance in the game.

9. Chris Jordan

Chris Jordan is new to the side, having played just two matches. He performed well against Punjab Kings picking two wickets, and assisting MS Dhoni in a run-out. He does his job well and can take crucial wickets in the game.

8. Dwayne Bravo

Bravo will have to lead the bowling department, and make his experience count. He will have to play the finishing shots if given the chance to take the innings to a good finish.

7. MS Dhoni (wk)

MS Dhoni, since he has left the captaincy, has been seen in a different form. He has been playing more freely and hitting those big shots that everyone had been anticipating for such a long time.

6. Shivam Dube

Dube have smashed some powerful shots in the game, but they will have to maintain that form in all games no onwards.

5. Ravindra Jadeja (c)

Ravindra Jadeja is going through the captaincy pressure, which is clearly visible through his performance. But he will have to overcome that to balance his duties.

4. Ambati Rayudu

Rayudu have been doing well, but they will have to put up a consistent performance in the tournament to rise up from the last spot on the table.

3. Moeen Ali

Moeen Ali was one of the key players that were instrumental in the Chennai Super Kings. CSK needs to have a strong middle order who can take the game to the next level.

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad

Ruturaj Gaikwad has struggled with the bat so far. Gaikwad has the highest score of 16 runs in this season, which came against the Orange Army. Apart from that, Gaikwad has failed to get into double-digits so far.

1. Robin Uthappa

Robin Uthappa is looking good for the defending champions. A quick 28 off 21 balls in the first game and 50 off 27 balls in the second proved to be a crucial knock for the team. However, the 36-year-old has not been at his best in the previous two matches.
