CSK announced the name of this star player in place of Sam Curran

Star left-arm fast bowler named as a replacement by Chennai Super Kings in place of Sam Curran for the playoff matches of IPL 2021

Sam Curran, an all rounder of Chennai Super Kings was ruled out of Indian Premium League 2021 because of a back injury. Along with that, the left-arm pace bowling all rounder will miss the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup event.

Dominic Drakes from the West Indies has been selected as a replacement by Chennai Super Kings for Sam Curran. Drakes has been in the United Arab Emirates as a net bowler which would lead to making his debut for the team in the IPL. It needs to be understood that Dominic has not yet made his debut for his national team yet. 

Sam Curran has been part of the Chennai Super Kings since last year and is considered to be one of the best players among the Chennai Super Kings squad. 

Sam Curran said that he felt extremely sad that he was going to miss the upcoming IPL 2021 Playoffs and the ICC T20 World Cup because of his injury.

He was quoted saying, “I absolutely loved my time with Chennai this season. The boys are doing extremely well. It hasn’t really sunk in but I am leaving the team. We are in a fantastic space. The boys are playing really good cricket. I am going to be supporting them from wherever I am in the next few days.”

MS Dhoni Teases A Return To The IPL In 2022

When Danny Morrison questioned whether CSK’s last game in IPL 2020 would be his final appearance in yellow, MS Dhoni said, “Definitely not.” The former Indian captain kept his promise and competeD in the gala event in 2021. However, many believe Dhoni will not play in the next season, and he has been dreadfully out of form with the bat.

That does not seem to be the case, as Dhoni has hinted at playing another IPL season. Speaking virtually to some of his supporters, the former Indian captain said that he would ‘hopefully’ play his last game in Chennai’s M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. With the current IPL 2021 in the UAE, Dhoni’s remark plainly suggests that he intends to play again next season.

“You will still have the chance to wish me goodbye. Hopefully, you will come to visit me in Chennai, where I will play my last game, and I will be able to meet all of my fans,” MS Dhoni addressed some of his supporters during a virtual engagement with India Cements. The news spread like wildfire among the wicketkeeper’s supporters, who were overjoyed.

MS Dhoni hasn’t been at his best with the bat this season

Meanwhile, Dhoni, who withdrew from international cricket last year, has been far from his best in recent seasons. The dasher, who is known for hammering sixes for pleasure, has failed to score runs. The 40-year-old has collected 84 runs in his first 13 appearances in the 2021 edition of the tournament, with an average and strike rate of less than 15 and 100, respectively.

These figures are far from outstanding. However, the talismanic player continues to excel in the areas of leadership and wicketkeeping. Notably, a big auction is planned for next year, with all clubs permitted to keep just a few players. As a result, it remains to be seen if CSK keeps Dhoni directly or whether the great cricketer will be auctioned off.

When it comes to CSK’s IPL 2021 campaign, the three-time champions have been on a run. After a difficult season, the Men in Yellow have easily earned a spot in the playoffs and will be keen to win it all again.

Gautam Gambhir Gives Advice Regarding MS Dhoni’s Batting Position For CSK

Against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last match of the Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates, Chennai Super Kings recorded a comprehensive six-wicket win against Virat Kohli and his team. In the same vein, MS Dhoni and his team CSK have climbed to the top of the points table and are all but guaranteed a spot in the playoffs. Gautam Gambhir, a former Indian cricketer, has given an idea regarding  Dhoni’s batting order in the playoffs.

Gambhir went on to say that if CSK makes it to the playoffs, the CSK captain should be elevated to the top of the batting order. It is well known that Dhoni often enters the field in the sixth or seventh position and promotes other players ahead of himself. According to the former cricketer, it doesn’t matter if CSK is chasing or batting first; Dhoni should come to bat at number 4 in any situation.

“MS Dhoni should bat at No.4 after Chennai Super Kings qualify for the playoffs, regardless of whether you are chasing or batting first, in order to be able to spend more time in the middle of the innings. I’ll be interested in seeing it, and I hope it occurs. The greatest thing about a captain is that he can bat anywhere he wants, and he can do it at his own discretion,” Gautam Gambhir said on Star Sports.

Gambhir went on to say that three and four-number batsmen do not always come in and score runs and that Dhoni should take the initiative now and take the game to the opposition. Even in CSK’s most recent game against RCB, he appeared in great form and hit a four to add to his total.

It is not always the case that your No. 3 and No. 4 will score runs: Gautam Gambhir

“Your No. 3 and No. 4 hitters will not always be successful. You will have to come up with a bit of extra grit. The more runs you score, the simpler it will get to complete the target.” He said, “You will qualify for the playoffs, but it should not be that the burden rests on your shoulders, that you lose early wickets, and that you have to come in and score runs.”

When it comes to the game between CSK and RCB, although RCB could only muster 156 runs on the board, CSK put up a solid opening combination and went on to win the game by six wickets in the end. MS Dhoni and his team have climbed to the top of the standings and are virtually certain to make the playoffs.

Kevin Pietersen Reveals Who Has The Biggest Chance Of Winning IPL 2021

On September 19, the Indian Premier League’s second leg will begin with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings, their arch-rivals. Both teams have a reputation for being the most successful in IPL history. Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has stated that CSK has a chance to win another IPL title ahead of the commencement of the UAE leg.

The IPL 2020 season for Chennai Super Kings was a disappointment. They did not advance to the Playoffs for the first time in the tournament’s history. The MS Dhoni-led team, on the other hand, reversed the tables this time and dominated the opening half of the IPL 2021. The squad is presently in second place in the points standings, having won five of the seven games they have played.

As a result, Pietersen stated that CSK’s success in the Indian leg of the IPL 2021 shocked him. He also put his hopes on the squad, claiming that they now have a great chance of winning the championship.

“Everyone had written off CSK’s old boys’ army before the IPL began in April, so watching them perform so well was a pleasant surprise. However, I’m not sure how well this four-month hiatus will have worked out for them. It may take some time for them to get back into gear, especially the older guys. It might be a historic few weeks for the franchise if they are prepared.”  In his recent piece for betway insider, Kevin Pietersen writes, “They have a terrific opportunity of achieving a title that everyone believed was beyond them.”

Losing three or four games is not an option for the Mumbai Indians: Kevin Pietersen

The defending champions, the Mumbai Indians, are presently in fourth position on the points standings, with eight points. The side usually gets off to a sluggish start in tournaments before gaining traction. The Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, cannot afford to lose their first few games, according to Pietersen, because the tournament is almost halfway over.

“They have a tendency to lose their first few games and then improve as the tournament progresses. We’re getting close to the finish of the competition now. Because there is so little time to make up, Mumbai cannot afford to lose three or four games before they begin playing. They must be on it from the first ball if they want to keep their crown. Clearly, they are capable of achieving it, given the skill on their team,” he continued.

Gautam Gambhir Explains Why MS Dhoni Needs To Improve The CSK Batting

On September 19, the second phase of the IPL 2021 begins, pitting MS Dhoni and his team against Rohit Sharma and his team. It’s unclear if the five-time winners will have the upper hand against their arch-rivals once more. If CSK must improve one aspect of their game, it must be their batting, as they struggled last season and had a terrible run in the 2020 IPL. Even when the game was on the line, Dhoni stepped in at number six or seven and promoted a number of young guys.

In a similar vein, veteran Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir believes that skipper MSD must improve CSK’s batting in order to have a successful run in the UAE this time. Gambhir believes that by dropping down the batting order, he is primarily attempting to serve as a mentor and wicketkeeper.

MS Dhoni is most likely attempting to be both a mentor and a wicketkeeper, according to Gambhir. MS may be able to play only 8-10 balls in a given circumstance, according to Gambhir, but it is becoming increasingly difficult for him to crack into the IPL due to his absence from the international circuit. In August 2020, the Ranchi
hero announced his retirement from the international circuit.

What Gautam Gambhir Said On STAR SPORTS Show GAME PLAN About MS Dhoni?

“MS is a batsman who would typically bat at number 4 or 5, but we saw in the first leg that he bats at number 6 or 7. There have been occasions when he has really pushed Sam Curran ahead of him. “He’s probably trying to be a mentor
and a wicketkeeper, who can lead the team and keep wickets.”

“If the circumstance arises where he will most likely have to play eight or ten balls, he can simply walk out there and hit them. It will be tough for him because, once you have retired from international cricket, the IPL is a very difficult event to enter; it is not like the CPL or other leagues. In the IPL, you’ll be up against some of the best bowlers in the world. The biggest problem for CSK, in my opinion, would be for the top-order to fire, which is no longer the case.”

Viral tweet about future CSK captain that was deleted by Ravindra Jadeja

MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, is unlikely to play more than one season. When he retires from the Indian Premier League, the Chennai Super Kings will be left with a big hole. 

The Chennai Super Kings can buy another wicketkeeper and a finisher, but they won’t be able to buy a leader like Mahendra Singh Dhoni. During his captaincy, the Chennai-based franchise has reached the Top 4 ten times out of eleven seasons. Only in 2020 did they miss it. 

It is also expected that the Chennai Super Kings will win the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League, with the team firmly positioned in the Top 4 before the UAE leg of the competition. 

Chennai Super Kings fans have been asked on Twitter who will be the team’s captain. Ravindra Jadeja, the star all-rounder of the Chennai Super Kings, responded. 

After offering an opinion, Ravindra Jadeja promptly deleted the tweet 

In the second phase of the Indian Premier League 2021, Ravindra Jadeja recently arrived in the United Arab Emirates to play for the Chennai Super Kings. The all-rounder replied to the following tweet using his jersey number ‘8’. CSK fans asked: 

Who would be your pick to captaining the CSK team after MS Dhoni?

Jadeja tweeted the number 8, which is his jersey number, in response to that question. After deleting the tweet, fans took a screenshot. This screenshot of Ravindra Jadeja’s now-deleted tweet can be seen right here, which was shared by the CSK Fans Army themselves on their Twitter account.
