Indian T20 League Chennai Full Squad 2021

The Chennai Team retained 18 players, traded one player and released six players before the 2021 season of the Indian T20 League. They have bought six players in the 2021 Auction.

Chennai Team Top Players

Below are the players in different categories that can be crucial to the team's chances in the 2021 season of the Indian T20 League.


    • MS Dhoni He has been the face of the Chennai franchise since the first season in 2008. Dhoni is a multi-dimensional batter, one who can accumulate, one who can rebuild and one who can hit big sixes. After the team’s suspension for two seasons (2016-2017) because of a spot-fixing scandal, he led the team to a fairytale third title in 2018. Read more..


    • Dwayne Bravo Bravo is one of the oldest active members of the Chennai team and has been with the side since 2011. He is famous for his aggressive batting in the middle order and is also known for the variety of lengths he can bowl at. He is the one of the two bowlers on the team and has won the Purple Cap twice in the league. Read more..
    • Ravindra Jadeja Chennai is never out of the game when Jadeja is at the crease. A big hitter, a wicket taker and a lightning-quick fielder, he ticks all the boxes that a team desires from a world-class all-rounder. He was adjudged the Player of the Match for his innings of 62* off 28 balls and his spell of 3/13 against Bangalore in Match 19 of the 2021 season. Read more..
    • Moeen Ali One of the newest buys of the Chennai team, Moeen has been dismissing critics ever since he emerged on the international scene. He is a clean striker of the cricket ball and will be playing the dual role of picking wickets with his off-breaks and providing a boost with the bat in the middle order. He was adjudged the Player of the Match against Rajasthan for his spell of 3/7. Read more..

Top Batters

    • Suresh Raina Alongside Dhoni, Suresh Raina has been an integral part of the Chennai team and its dominance in the league. He is the highest run scorer for the team, with 4682 runs in 174 matches. His biggest strength is the use of footwork against spinners, though he is not great at playing short-pitched deliveries by fast bowlers. Read more..
    • Faf du Plessis Faf du Plessis has been a figure of consistency since he joined the team in the 2011 season. He can anchor the innings and is known for his smart hitting. He is the leading run scorer for the team this season and made his highest score (95 runs) in Match 15 against Kolkata. Read more..
    • Ruturaj Gaikwad Part of the “Next Gen” category of Team India, Gaikwad was impressive with the bat and made 3 consecutive fifties in the last three matches of the 2020 season. He is not flashy like other T20 batters and plays proper cricketing shots. In Match 23, he was adjudged the Player of the Match for his innings of 75 runs off 44 balls against Hyderabad. Read more..

Top Bowlers

    • Deepak Chahar Deepak Chahar is a classical swing bowler who has added T20 street smarts to his game since making his debut. A bowler in the mould of Praveen Kumar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Chahar is often used in the Power Play with the new ball. Adding to his skills, he has turned himself into a capable bowler at the death. He was adjudged the Player of the Match against Punjab for his spell of 4/13 earlier in the season. Read more..
    • Shardul Thakur A member of the Chennai team since 2018, Thakur's forte in the fast-bowling domain is a little different from the usual ones. He is a hit-the-deck bowler who gets extra bounce and occasional seam movement. With his batting being resourceful, especially in power hitting, he certainly is a player to watch out for in this Chennai unit. Read more..
    • Imran Tahir Although he has not played regularly this season, Tahir remains a top quality spinner in the Chennai bowling unit. A feisty character with a range of variations, he has dominated the batters all over the world, with the googly being his biggest weapon. He is widely popular for his running celebrations after taking a wicket. Read more..
