Decision 1 – Who takes Moeen Ali’s Place? Moeen Ali got his visa late and has finally arrived in India. The England all rounder is currently in Quarantine and will the opening match vs KKR.

Jadeja needs to decide – who takes Moeen Ali’s place in XI? In all likelihood Ali’s place in XI will go to Dwayne Bravo who otherwise would have to sit out of XI.

Deepak Chahar hasn’t yet recovered from his injury. Dwaine Pretorius will only be available after South Africa’s ODI series against Bangladesh, meaning he is likely to miss the first game as well as he will exit the quarantine on match-day.

Batting line-up: With Moeen Ali all but out of the 1st match, Robin Uthappa will be promoted to No 3 with Ambati Rayudu at No 4. Ravindra Jadeja will be the preferred No 5 ahead of seam-bowling all-rounder Shivam Dube at No 6. Dwayne Bravo and former skipper MS Dhoni will occupy 7th and 8th positions.

Bowling Combination: However, it is the bowling department where CSK will lack the edge with Deepak Chahar out injured. Jadeja’s choice for a third pacer apart from Adam Milne and Mitchell Santner as the two frontline pacers saw the inclusion of young Tushar Deshpande in the team.

Chris Jordan is all set to warm the bench as he makes way for Mitchell Santner in the playing XI. It was unlike of Jadeja to opt for two – left-handed spinners, we wait to see how this gamble turns out.
