Mike Hussey confirmed that Ben Stokes was available for selection having passed all the fitness tests. He also enjoyed a lengthy batting session on the eve of the game. However, at this stage, he is only likely to replace Moeen Ali, and against a Capitals team that has lost most wickets to spin this season (30 at ER 7.43) and with three key southpaws in the top-six, CSK is unlikely to make that swap for this game.

Probable XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Deepak Chahar, Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana, Tushar Deshpande (Impact Sub: Ambati Rayudu)

Anrich Nortje flew back home for a personal emergency ahead of the RCB game. He remains unavailable for this clash in Chennai. Ruturaj Gaikwad has been dismissed four times this season to wrist spin and hence, Kudeep Yadav will be an obvious match-up option if Gaikwad bats out of the PowerPlay. Then there’s also Shivam Dube, who has a strike rate of 165.33 against spin.

Probable XI: David Warner (c), Phil Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Rilee Rossouw, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed (Impact Sub: Lalit Yadav)
