Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who failed to make the cut to the playoffs for the first time in IPL 2020, will be aiming for a better show in the upcoming season. The MS Dhoni-led side will open their campaign against last-year's finalists Delhi Capitals.

This year, none of the IPL teams are playing at their homes venues due to COVID-19 restrictions in a few states. All the matches will be played at neutral venues.

The governing body said through a press statement, "The fixtures of the tournament have been mapped in a way that every team will travel only three times during the league stage, thus reducing commute and minimising risk."

At the recently-held auctions, CSK made some quality buying looking to fill gaps in the squad. They bought an all-rounder in Moeen Ali for Rs 7 crore. They replaced Piyush Chawla with K Gowtham, who was bought for Rs 9.25 crore. CSK also purchased Cheteshwar Pujara, who is coming to IPL after a gap of six years.

CSK will be playing their league games in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Ahmedabad.

Here's their schedule for IPL 2021
