Three-times IPL champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), have released some of their old guards ahead of the 14th season, thus ensuring they will feature some new faces in the IPL 2021. While captain MS Dhoni, his deputy Suresh Raina and veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo are among those who have been retained, the likes of Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla and Kedar Jadhav have had their associations ended.

The retirement of Aussie legend Shane Watson has also opened up an overseas spot in the CSK camp. Faf du Plessis, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Lungi Ngidi and Deepak Chahar are some of the others from the core of the team who have been retained.
