His calmness and composure has makes him such an important player in the CSK's batting line-up. The 27-year-old opener plays the fast bowlers and spinners equally well. In the absence of Conway, he will be expected to score big runs in IPL 2024.

In the absence of Conway, Rachin Ravindra is likely to partner Ruturaj Gaikwad at the top. Although it will be Ravindra's debut IPL season, but he has all the capabilities to be successful. He had a terriific ODI World Cup 2023 played in India where he scored 578 runs in just 10 matches. In the process, he averaged 64.22 with a strike rate of 106.44.

Ravindra is comfortable against both pace and spin as he showed in the World Cup. He might not have played a lot of T20 cricket but he has shown glimpses of his talent in the T20I matches he has played so far. He can be handy with his left-arm spin, which can play a role on a slow Chennai pitch. With the T20 World Cup approaching, he will be aiming to present his case in IPL 2024.

Jadeja bowls quality left-arm spin, which can be helpful on spinner-friendly pitches at Chepauk. Adding to this, he has played some superb cameos with the bat for CSK as a finisher as well.

Jadeja is a highly experienced player in the IPL. He is likely to bowl four overs in almost every match of the season. The 35-year-old is also a superb fielder and has the ability to change the course of a game by his gun fielding. Being an allrounder, he will be a good addition in the Fantasy Cricket team.
