CSK Team Profile IPL 2021: The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) led by MS Dhoni are slated to take on the Delhi Capitals (DC) in their first match of the IPL 2021 season today at 7.30 pm at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Maharashtra. 

All eyes will be on the three-time IPL Champions as they hope to bounce back from their disastrous form in the last edition when they even failed to qualify for the playoffs. The Delhi Capitals led by young Rishab Pant, on the other hand, will be aiming to have a good start and perform better than last season when they had ended up as the runner-ups. Pant was appointed the captain of the team in the absence of injured Shreyas Iyer. 

The DC skipper said that he looks forward to learning from veteran cricketer Dhoni to use in DC's opening match. 

Shane Watson, who had player for CSK in the last season before announcing his retirement, wished the team ahead of their first IPL game. He posted a collage of photos on his social media with his former teammates including skipper MS Dhoni. He posted saying, "Let's make it 4 titles."

Forgettable IPL 2020 Season

The Chennai Super Kings had a forgettable season last year after they failed to make it into the playoffs for the first time in 11 seasons. It was probably the worst IPL season for the franchise, as it finished at the seventh position out of eight teams despite getting off to a winning start. 

Though the side has not made many changes this season like every time, they have Suresh Raina back to add more power to the batting side. Suresh Raina, who was the Vice-Captain of the team, had pulled out of IPL 2020 just days before the tournament and returned home citing personal reasons. His absence had dealt a huge blow to the side. 

The Chennai Super Kings had previously lifted the IPL trophy in 2010, 2011 and 2018.
