Chennai Super Kings lost their opening game against Gujarat Titans in the tournament opener at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, MS Dhoni and Co opened their account with a win over Lucknow Super Giants in the next game.
After that, Chennai Super Kings went on to beat Mumbai Indians in the third game to make it two wins in a row. However, they failed to churn out a winning result against Rajasthan Royals at their fortress in Chennai.
CSK almost came close to securing a thriller win but went on to lose the game by 3 runs. The yellow army will lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the next game on April 17 (Monday) at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
It is going to be one heck of a fascinating battle between these two teams. Now, in this article, we will now take a look at the two changes that CSK should make going into the next game against RCB.
1. Dwaine Pretorius should come in for Shivam Dube
Chennai Super Kings might as well look to replace Shivam Dube with Dwaine Pretorious in the next game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Shivam Dube was far from being impressive against Rajasthan Royals.
Dwaine Pretorius didn’t play against Rajasthan Royals in the most recent encounter and should be good to go. He has played seven games in the IPL wherein he took six wickets to his name. Besides his bowling credentials, he is known for being a pinch-hitter of the game. He has a strike rate of 157.14, which could come in handy against RCB.
2. Deepak Chahar should come in for Sisanda Magala
Deepak Chahar had a terrible day at the office while bowling against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The right-arm medium-fast bowler conceded 55 runs in four overs, which is the worst spell of his IPL career.
Deepak Chahar might have sorted out his woes now. He is best known for his ability to take crucial wickets in powerplay overs. Sisanda Magala has been out of action for at least two weeks due to an injury. As a result, CSK team management would bring Deepak Chahar back into the mix.
