In the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) can keep three players. Chennai Super Kings staged an incredible comeback in IPL 2021 after having their worst season in IPL history the previous year. Last year, they were the first club to be eliminated from the playoffs. The next year, MS Dhoni and his teammates silenced all of their doubters.
This year, Mahendra Singh Dhoni guided the team to their fourth IPL triumph. To say the least, his bat stats were unremarkable. His ability to manage the team and utilise his players intelligently, on the other hand, is unrivalled. MS Dhoni should be retained in the mega-auctions, based on recent remarks made by CSK authorities. There’s also a chance he won’t captain the team in IPL 2022 and would instead play as a specialist batter and wicketkeeper.
Ravindra Jadeja’s profile has risen dramatically in the previous several years as an all-rounder. Jadeja has put in a lot of effort to improve his batting, and it’s paying off right now. In the IPL 2021, the southpaw has made several key contributions for CSK. He’s been an important component for them for a long time, and it’s doubtful he won’t be kept at the mega-auctions.
Ruturaj Gaikwad, the IPL 2021 orange cap holder, has been a revelation for Chennai in the IPL 2021. Many cricket commentators have praised his ability to pierce the gaps and even knock sixes just by timing. Ruturaj Gaikwad caused havoc on the IPL 2021 second leg, scoring a tonne of runs for the club.
He scored 635 runs in 16 matches at an average of 45.36 and a strike rate of 136.27. Ruturaj Gaikwad may be a long-term player for CSK, given how effectively he paces his innings throughout the competition.
