IPL 2022: Chennai Super King’s (CSK) finest bowling combination: In less than twenty days from now, the grand IPL is all set to kick off as the fifteenth edition (IPL 2022) of the tournament starts with an extraordinary ten teams from the usual mould of eight. All the teams got a fair taste of the upcoming battle that is about to unfold as two days of intense bidding wars saw Bengaluru rocked with ten teams calling their shots.
CSK ensured the fact that they have their core unit in place as they bought back most of their players, at the IPL 2022 auction, who helped them to lift the trophy after a disastrous 2020 IPL season.
As the discussions intensify for the imminent war, let us take you through the possible bowling combination of the Chennai Super Kings who will be eyeing to continue their momentum as the team takes the field for IPL 2022.
Let’s have a look at the best bowling line-up for CSK in IPL 2022
Adam Milne is currently one of the finest that New Zealand has got. He can rack up some neat movement of the ball and is known to thrive under pressure. Milne has an exceptionally variegated arsenal that has seen him producing a fine blend of speed and variation.
Despite being able to clock 140 plus clicks regularly, he ensures the fact that he is shuffling up his deliveries too frequently that leaves the batters in a state of astonishment. He also has a menacing yorker and can be one of the toughest bowlers to face in the death overs. With Deepak Chahar unavailable for most of the games for CSK, Milne will undoubtedly be the best pick for the Kings.
Ravindra Jadeja holds the key for CSK in IPL 2022
Ravindra Jadeja will definitely be in the plans of the CSK for his batting exploits but the Indian all-rounder managed to put up a sizzling display in the latest outings after coming back from an injury that saw him being out for almost two months. The growing confidence in Ravindra Jadeja can be Chennai’s key to the lower middle-order quandary and a few crucial overs in the middle, in IPL 2022. With the tournament scheduled to be in Mumbai, the turn will probably be on the lesser side but a bowler of his caliber comes to any contest with a repertoire that has magic hidden beneath.
Hangargekar pulled off a couple of exceptional displays in the U19 World Cup as he was one of the most crucial elements of the World Cup-winning team. One excellent thing about him lately has been his ability to maintain some brilliant consistency in sticking to the good length area. He is also a fine striker of the ball with the bat and can rack up some searing heat given his towering stature. CSK will hope for Rajvardhan to replicate his success in the World Cup but his first big rodeo will be pushing him to his limits.
The mystery man left the other batters reeling in agony with an enigmatic brand of spin that leaked very minimal runs. From the powerplay to the middle-overs, Moeen Ali can wring out a couple of cheap overs that makes life a living hell for the batters. His key to wickets is the fact that he makes the batters impatient and sensing the urge to score, they are often committed to a miscued strike. He also keeps the line dead straight where the batters get very little room to free their arms.
Fifth bowler: Dwanye Bravo / Shivam Dube / KM Asif / Chris Jordan
Dwayne Bravo has already proven his worth in the shortest format of the game time and time again and a couple of overs can very well be expected to get the job done for the Champion.
Shivam Dube can be a regular in CSK’s XI in IPL 2022
Shivam Dube will definitely be doing the rounds in MS Dhoni’s minds given the decent all-rounder that he is. KM Asif will be getting limited games but given the transition that Chennai will be keeping in mind, they may allow Asif to roll his arms for a game or two. Chris Jordan will have to wait given the presence of other big names in the lineup. However, his all-round display will play a crucial role in shaping the lower-middle order of the Kings if he is in the playing eleven.
