Chennai Super Kings failed to qualify for the IPL play-offs for the first time in IPL history in 2020. After a disastrous season, the franchise will be looking to rebound in the coming season with a return to their home ground Chepauk in Chennai.

Suresh Raina, CSK's key player returns to the squad after missing out the last season. On the whole, CSK look well balanced and it all depends on how they perform as a team and they desperately need Dhoni "The Finisher" to contribute more with the bat during the slog overs. Pujara, who had a promising career at the Test level for India was picked by CSK in the auction. It will be hard for Pujara to make a debut for CSK though, as they have plenty of other Indian batsman in the squad and a handful of all-rounders.
