With only six days left for the first game of the IPL 2022 season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) management has dropped a hint about their new opening pair. The Tamil Nadu franchise shared a picture of their new opening pair on social media. Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad are going to open the innings for CSK in IPL 2022.

As Faf du Plessis is not a part of the yellow army anymore, CSK management roped in New Zealand’s Devon Conway for his base price. It was almost clear then itself that Conway will open alongside Gaikwad for the 15th edition of the Indian T20 league. While Gaikwad has performed really well for CSK at the top of the order, Conway has done well for New Zealand as an opener.  The southpaw averages over 50 in 20 T20Is. He has accumulated 602 runs with the help of four half-centuries.

CSK to open IPL 2022 campaign against KKR

Talking about CSK’s first game of the IPL 2022 season, they are scheduled to play Kolkata Knight Riders on March 26 in the tournament opener. MS Dhoni and Co. will hope to kickstart the campaign in style at the Wankhede Stadium. CSK will miss the services of a few of their marquee players like Faf du Plessis, Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar. While Thakur and du Plessis have joined hands with other franchises, Chahar is likely to miss the first few games as he is still recovering from his quadriceps injury.

CSK Squad for IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, Dwayne Bravo, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar, Shivam Dube, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Devon Conway, Dwaine Pretorius, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Subhranshu Senapati, Mukesh Choudhary, Prashant Solanki, K.Bhagath Varma, C.Hari Nishaanth, N. Jagadeesan, K.M. Asif, Tushar Deshpande, Simarjeet Singh.

CSK Probable XI for first few games: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, KM Asif, Prashant Solanki
