Chennai will not miss Ben Stokes much
With Ben Stokes returning home, Chennai Super Kings will not miss him much. The Chennai team has come to the field without any change in the last 4 league stage matches. Now in Qualifier-1 also, there is little hope that CSK will make any changes in the team. The first qualifier match of this season of IPL will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
