Ambati Rayudu & Robin Uthappa are likely to be dropped for the Gujarat Titans clash

Both Robin Uthappa & Ambati Rayudu have looked out of sorts in the last three games. Uthappa has managed single-digits scores in his last four outings while Rayudu’s top score in the last three games is 10.

CSK have two Tamil Nadu batters Narayan Jagadeesan and Hari Nishanth as options besides Subhranshu Senapati on the bench. India U-19 Rajvardhan Hangargekar is also on the bench and an all-round option.

CSK Playing XI vs GT: Why should MS Dhoni drop Uthappa & Rayudu?

  • Rayudu with his shocking retirement announcement proved that he himself is not sure about his career.
  • Although he was talked out of retirement by the CSK management, he is low on confidence due to his poor form.
  • Rayudu in the last three IPL matches: 10 vs MI, 5 vs DC, 10 vs RCB.
  • Robin Uthappa sparkled initially but has managed four single-digit scores in his last four games.
  • Uthappa in the last 4 games: 1 vs MI, 0 vs DC, 1 vs RCB, 1 vs PBKS
  • After CSK crashed to their second-lowest total of 97 against MI, team’s batting department needs a deeper look.
  • As CSK have already crashed out of the Playoff race, the last two games could help MS Dhoni test the bench strength.
  • Narayan Jagadeesan, Hari Nishanth, Subhranshu Senapati and Rajvardhan Hangargekar are four youngsters who are warming the bench.

However, as for others in the Playing XI, they are all but confirmed to play barring any late injuries. Devon Conway is in prime form and so is Ruturaj Gaikwad. The two will continue to open.

It is the No 3 and 4 spots that are up for debate. If either of Hari Nishanth or N Jagadeesan play, they are both top-order batters and Moeen Ali could be pushed down to No 5.

Shivam Dube after a string of poor shows could also be dropped. Rajvardhan Hangargekar is a young all-round option that CSK can try out. But if he makes his CSK debut, it is likely that Dhoni will promote himself to No 6. Dwayne Bravo will bat at No 7 followed by Hangargekar at 8.
