CSK Ahead of IPL 2021
Chennai had a forgettable season last year and which led them to make certain changes ahead of the IPL 2021. The franchise had released 5 players including Kedar Jadhav and Harbhajan Singh from the squad while Shane Watson had taken retirement after a disastrous season. CSK retained newly recruited Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sam Curran which are going to be key to the team’s success this year.
Meanwhile, Suresh Raina will be making his comeback after missing the whole tournament in 2020. The recent auction was a decent one for Chennai as they bought 6 players, 4 of which were uncapped Indian players. CSK spent INR 9.25 crore to bring uncapped Krishanappa Gowtham and the bid popped many eyes. Moeen Ali was their only overseas buy. Management’s decision of buying Cheteshwar Pujara earned respect from fans.
