IPL is a tournament where 7 teams fight each other to meet CSK in the final. This is a very famous quote by an ex-cricketer about CSK’s dominance in the IPL. CSK have been one of the best teams in the IPL by a huge distance and they are undoubtedly one of the biggest contenders to lift the trophy even this year.
One of the most fascinating things about CSK in the IPL has been how they have always played with a certain philosophy and always lived by it. They have combined the experience of age with the talent and hunger of the youth and have delivered mind-blowing performances. This year too was no different.
Even though it was time for the mega auction, CSK were one of the calm teams at the table going about their business quite calmly and silently. The very fact that they were able to buy a player like Devon Conway for just 1 cr shows how masterful they have been at choosing their apples from the tree. They still banked on experience and bought players like Robin Uthappa and Dwayne Bravo who are at the dawn of their careers.
Let us look at the team CSK have assembled and how CSK’s playing 11 for IPL 2022 might look like.

Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar and Dwayne Bravo are the core members of the CSK camp who have been there for quite some time and know their roles in the team.
