With Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw likely to take the top 2 positions yet again next season for the Delhi Capitals, the team could be willing to relieve Colin Munro.

On the other hand, CSK could have to tinker with their batting line-up for IPL 2020. Shane Watson's dismal form during most of last season was a worry while Faf du Plessis' availability and form could always be a question mark. It is unsure if Sam Billings can remain consistent for 14 games and the retirement of Ambati Rayudu will also leave a vacant spot. Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni are not the batsmen they used to be and Kedar Jadhav is yet to fire for CSK.

Munro is an explosive opener, and if he gets going, he can turn the tables in the matter of a few overs. He has been with the New Zealand squad for a while and his experience at the international level could be useful to the squad. Munro can also offer a few overs with the ball and is a good fielder too.

CSK's run-rate in the power-play was the worst of all teams last season and Munro could be the answer to this problem. Hence, CSK must target the Kiwi in the trade window.
