  • Team Chennai Squad
  • Team Punjab Squad

Josh Hazlewood’s participation boosts Chennai’s pace stocks hugely, but the onus will still be on the spin of Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali, with veteran Imran Tahir being a wild card option. They need more runs from their Indian stalwarts like MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina. Here are some key players that can play an important role for the Chennai team in the 2021 season:

    • MS Dhoni (C)
    • Suresh Raina
    • Faf du Plessis
    • Ravindra Jadeja
    • Shardul Thakur
    • Moeen Ali

KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have led the way with the bat, and Punjab will hope for a couple of explosive outings from Chris Gayle too. Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh have done well with the ball, but much more is expected from experienced players like Mohammed Shami and Chris Jordan. Adil Rashid and Nathan Ellis have replaced the Aussie duo of Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith. Here are some players who can play a key role for Team Punjab:

    • KL Rahul (C)
    • Mayank Agarwal
    • Chris Gayle
    • Nicholas Pooran
    • Mohammed Shami
    • Arshdeep Singh
