Ben Stokes might open with Ruturaj Gaikwad as he is playing as a specialist batter. Devon Conway may have to warm the bench to make way for Dwaine Pretorius who will provide CSK with great bowling as well batting option. 

Dhoni might bat at number four, considering that the franchise has plenty of options with them to finish things off at the backend. Jadeja, along with Dube with take on the all-rounder's role and Deepak Chahar should lead the bowling attack with  Simarjeet Singh and Maheesh Theekshana.
