Chennai have failed to live up to the expectations in the tournament due to inconsistency. Barring a few players like Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja, other players have not contributed much to the team’s performance in IPL 2020.

The three time IPL winners outperformed defending champions Mumbai Indians in their first clash of this season by five wickets. It is to be seen if CSK can again get the better of MI in their upcoming game.
