The Chennai Super Kings have been great in this IPL as they have finished in the top two. They were not really under pressure to qualify at any stage and have made it quite comfortably so far.

CSK have lost most number of wickets in power plays this IPL

However, in spite of being so successful this IPL, there have been a number of noticable weaknesses that CSK has had. The most glaring one has been the batting which has mostly been an MS Dhoni show so far. There have been a few contributions from Raina, Faf Du Plessis, and Watson but by far the batting unit has not performed up to the mark.

CSK has lost 29 wickets in the powerplay which is the most by any team this year. SRH have been the best in this regard losing just 9 wickets, thanks to Warner and Bairstow who flourished at the top. Mumbai Indians who are playing against the Chennai Super Kings in the first playoff match have lost 13 wickets which is the best after SRH.

Once again today, CSK have lost 3 wickets in the powerplay and hence will need to come back really strong to win the match against the Mumbai Indians who have had the upper hand over CSK in head to head battles.
