Theekshana is the x-factor for the Chennai Super Kings. He is a mystery bowler having got many variations under his sleeve. The Sri Lankan spinner can bowl knuckleball, leg spin, off spin, carrom ball, and flipper. He can bowl in the powerplay as a wicket-taking option as well as bowl one over at the death if needed. The pitches in Chennai will suit him and the batters will face challenges while facing him. Maheesh Theekshana is surely a contender for the leading wicket-taker in the tournament.
