CSK's predicted playing XI

With Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra likely to open the batting for CSK, replacing the injured Devon Conway from last season, the team's top order undergoes a shift. Moeen Ali, the English all-rounder, is anticipated to bat at number three, followed by Ajinkya Rahane at number four, and Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja to follow suit. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni will resume his duties behind the stumps while potentially slotting in at number seven in the batting order.
