Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) run in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) can be summed up by the adage: “All good things must come to an end.” The franchise, which had never failed to qualify for the playoffs before, had a miserable outing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), finishing seventh.

The three-time IPL champion had to battle various issues, from key players such as Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh opting out, to players contracting Covid-19 (Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad) and an ageing squad without enough batting firepower. The fact that the pitches in the UAE did not offer the kind of assistance CSK is used to in Chennai for its spin-based bowling lineup did not help matters either.

With the tournament returning to India, CSK will feel a bit more confident even though it can’t play in Chennai.
