MS Dhoni the strength of Chennai

The opening pair of this team has given a good start throughout the tournament. Along with this, two contenders for the Orange Cap are also included in this team. There is a lot of depth in the batting of this team. Talking about the weakness of Chennai, it is much weaker than Kolkata’s bowling attack. The middle order of this team is the weakest link. But if Chennai reached the final with Robin Uthappa’s brilliant performance in the last match, it would be a bit of a relief for the team.
Kolkata’s strength Narayan-Varun
