The entire tournament is going to be streamed across all major streaming services. You can Watch the entire IPL 2020 live on YuppTV.
The first match between CSK and MI starts at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT), 18:00 LOCAL TIME in Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Needless to say, it is going to be a power-packed start.
Chennai Super Kings have always made sure that their performances are worth every second spent. It is one of the best teams in the entire IPL. CSK is a team that knows how to win and is unstoppable. With lots of match-winners in their team and the expert strategist Dhoni himself, it is sure to set the field on fire. Fans are waiting to watch Dhoni in action, especially since the announcement of his retirement.
But this team has seen so many hurdles just ahead of the season. With 13 members, including 2 players testing positive for COVID 19, the practice sessions were delayed. As if this wasn’t enough of a roadblock, two major players, Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh opted out of IPL 2020. The management and the players remain optimistic even after these blows but the void is huge.
Suresh Raina, who opted out of the IPL 2020 citing personal reasons, is a valuable asset. There will be a major change in CSK’s plans after this because he is an important part of the batting line-up. Raina has played 193 matches for CSK and he has scored more than 5000 runs. His absence will have to be carefully compensated because the imbalance it creates is massive. He has the second highest overall after Virat’s 5412 runs. His record of being the first Indian batsman to hit a century in all three formats of international cricket says it all.
His stellar performances in the IPL got him a place on the Cricinfo IPL XI many times. He holds the record of most consecutive appearances for a team and the most number of catches (95) in the IPL. He is the first Indian Player to have hit 100 sixes in the IPL. Raina is the first and only player to have scored over 400 runs in 7 consecutives (2008-2014) IPL seasons. With a track record like this, Raina is undoubtedly CSK’s treasure. His replacement is going to be difficult for the team. But let us not forget that Thala Dhoni is a mastermind and will surely up his game to cover up for the absence.
