Strengths of Team CSK
Chennai Super Kings have a great balance in all 3 departments. However, the biggest X factor is the presence of all-rounders. With the likes of Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav amongst the ranks, they have a big advantage over any other side.
Weaknesses of Team CSK
Their only weakness could be in the spin department. Harbhajan Singh and Karn Sharma are the proper Indian spinners in the side. Both haven’t been at their best of late. Imran Tahir is the leggie but due to the restriction of only 4 overseas players in the XI, he might find it hard to find a place.
