Chennai Super Kings are much known as the Thalaivas of the IPL. The three-time champions had done exceptionally well in the latest season to describe their DNA. It seems like nothing can stop them. From Dhoni’s cricketing mind to Raina’s legendary stuff, from Bravo’s bravery to Watson’s brilliance. At some point in time, CSK looks invincible, but some foreign element can ruin their path towards retaining the title next season which needs to be put, out of the outfield.

Mark Woods had a nightmare at his very first match against Mumbai Indians which turned out to be his worst performance. Wood, in his first over, was looking a bit calmer but later on, the Pandya brothers took over the match and punished him with 45 runs in just two over that was his first and last appearance in the IPL.
David Willey’s debut was not a horrible one, but it was not an impressive one too. He got to perform against RCB on the very first encounter later he became a bunny of Sunrisers batsman although MSD again tested Willey against Rajasthan Royals, he continued his lousy form over there. It is a bit obvious that CSK is not going to retain him at all.
The Kiwi bowler, Mitchell Santner, was welcomed by the team to give a substantial impact on the opposition because of his overseas record. Later on, he got a bone defect in the knee which led him out of action throughout IPL. It may be a thought for CSK to not to retain him later in the next season.
