Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar heaped praise on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for their exemplary performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.

The three-time champions were placed second on the points table. They have got 6 wins before the tournament was indefinitely suspended.

CSK Last Year:

CSK had a tough season last year as they ended up seventh in the league stages. They lacked the services of several match-winners like Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, who had pulled out of the tournament citing personal reasons. Moreover, it was the first time in the IPL history that CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs.

CSK this Year:

But this year, they started afresh with several new players in the den. Also, they have the same core group. They ticked all the boxes and left no stone unturned in outclassing the opponents.

The batting great further highlighted that promoting Moeen Ali at No. 3 was the ‘masterstroke’. He also lauded other England all-rounder, Sam Curran for his wonderful contribution.

What Sunil Gavaskar Says about CSK:

All the other teams were in top form with last year’s disappointing team, Chennai Super Kings, looking like the champion it usually had been all these years. There was a renewed energy about the team this time, though there were no major changes to its squad,” Gavaskar wrote.

The promotion of Moeen Ali to the top of the order at No. 3 turned out to be a masterstroke as the left-handed batsman produced some blistering innings. The seasoned Faf du Plessis was in cracking form, too, and, along with the promising Ruturaj Gaekwad, gave the team some top starts.

Gavaskar also has praised Sam Curran. He says, “Sam Curran continues to impress and improve with every game. He bids fair to be considered a proper all-rounder now. It’s the final overs’ bowling that the side needs to strengthen as was evident in the match against Mumbai. “
