IPL 2018: 5 players who can guide CSK to the IPL title
There’s no denying the fact that the 11th edition of Indian Premier League has witnessed some of the most closely fought IPL encounters in the history of the league. With most of the games going down the wire, the fans have been thoroughly entertained to get their money’s worth.
As we enter into the second half of the tournament, the race for the top four spots gets even more exciting especially, with teams languishing at the bottom, punching above their weights to spring a surprise against the table toppers.
However, Chennai Super Kings, who returned after a span of two years has been one of the most sorted out teams this edition. Despite a lacklustre bowling attack, the men in yellow have powered themselves to glory on most of the occasions.
We take a look at some of the key players who can guide them to this year’s IPL title:
#5 Harbhajan Singh - A bank full of experience
After representing Mumbai Indians for ten consecutive years, Harbhajan shifted his base to begin a new journey with the men in yellow. He was roped in by the franchise considering his vast experience that he brings on to the table. He got a nod from this Southern franchise when he was bought at his base price of INR 2 Crores.
The veteran off-spinner boasts to have an experience of playing more than 100 IPL games under his belt. It was a well-known fact that Singh won’t be a match winner for his side but could well be a reliable bowler who can bat lower down the order.
And the 37-year-old has done enough justice to his abilities with four wickets in the 7 games with an economy just above 7 to give his side a real chance with the ball. His tidy spells in the powerplay have made him a go-to man for the skipper.
