Piyush Chawla is an Indian cricketer and has represented various IPL teams over the years including Kings XI Punjab. Ahead of the 2020 season of the IPL he was picked by CSK and made his debut for the MS Dhoni-led side. CSK did not have the best start of the season as earlier they had 13 members of the squad who tested COVID-19 positive. They also had senior players Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh drop out of the season due to personal reasons.

The franchise has only had 1 win so far and will be looking for wins soon before it’s too late. With the absence of their star spinner Harbhajan Singh, the management will be hopeful that Piyush Chawla can do the job for the team. While in the opener of the season Chawla moved to the third place to become the third-highest wicket-taker removing Harbhajan Singh. Piyush Chawla now has 151 wickets to his name.

Chennai Super Kings are all set to play Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday evening and need a win desperately to boost the confidence of the side. While CSK is coming from a loss SRH won the last match against DC and are in a great form. MS Dhoni will be looking for Piyush Chawla to take responsibility with the ball and help take wickets and save runs for the side.
