The Chennai Super Kings will look forward to the IPL 2021 as a way to make a comeback after a setback in IPL 2020. For the first time in their IPL history, the Chennai Super Kings could not find a place in the Top 4 of the points table. Nevertheless, CSK was without its big names in the previous season.

However, there are six Chennai Super Kings cricketers who are in excellent form before the IPL 2021 season. Here’s a list of those six players.

6. Shardul Thakur

Chennai Super Kings team management would be delighted after looking at the evolution of Shardul Thakur into an all-rounder. Thakur can regularly bowl four overs of right-arm pace for the team.

Narayan Jagadeesan was an integral part of the Tamil Nadu squad that lifted the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He scored 78* vs Hyderabad and a 71* vs. Bengal.

Jagadeesan also hit a century against the Punjab cricket team in the 2021 Vijay Hazare Trophy. Thus, the right-handed batsman has shown some great form before IPL 2021.

2. Harishankar Reddy

Harishankar Reddy’s bowling had gone viral on social media after he uprooted the leg stump of MS Dhoni in the practice session. Only that delivery is enough to show Reddy’s top form.

The Andhra-based player recently featured in the 2021 Vijay Hazare Trophy. Reddy took a four-wicket haul versus Jharkhand and followed it up with a 3/60 against Gujarat.

1. Robin Uthappa

Robin Uthappa has stated ahead of IPL 2021 that he wants to score 1,000 runs in one IPL season. While no batsman has achieved the milestone yet, Uthappa’s dream could become true this year.

The right-handed batsman moved from the Rajasthan Royals to the Chennai Super Kings during the trade window. Uthappa has been in magnificent touch of late. He recorded two fifties and two hundreds for Kerala in the 2021 Vijay Hazare Trophy.
