With Deepak Chahar likely to miss CSK’s next game against RR, the team can look to give Simranjeet Singh a chance. The pacer was very impressive last season for the team as picked 6 games and picked 4 wickets in them. The pacer also has the ability to swing the new ball, which was quite evident last season. There it’s expected that he will be the perfect man to fill the void left by Deepak Chahar.
Akash Singh was roped in by the Chennai Super Kings as a replacement for Mukesh Choudhary. The pacer was part of India’s U19 world cup squad in 2020. He was quite impressive and bowled exceptionally well. The left-arm pacer has thus far played 9 T20s in addition to 9 List A matches and five first-class games and has 31 wickets. He could bring in the left-arm angle in the lineup for CSK and can also extract swing with the new ball, which can be handy for the team in the absence of a Dhoni-led side in place of Deepak Chahar
