IPL 2019: 3 best possible overseas combinations for Chennai Super Kings
- Which of these should CSK try for the first game?
#2 Shane Watson, Faf Du Plessis/Sam Billings, David Willey, Mitchell Santner/Imran Tahir
The fact that Bravo has not been in great form and has not been good enough at the death in recent times, might tempt the management to look for other options. David Willey might prove to be the perfect replacement in that case.
Considering the fact that Willey might not be as reliable as Bravo with the bat, CSK might go in with Mitchell Santner in place of Imran Tahir. But looking at the depth in CSK's batting, they can afford to go in with Tahir as well. In case Santner gets in, Karn Sharma might be an option to play the leg-spinner's role.
Probable XI: Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Faf Du Plessis/Sam Billings, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, David Willey, Mitchell Santner/Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Mohit Sharma/Karn Sharma
