The most awaited IPL auctions are almost here, and the franchises have already gotten ready with their strategies and plan to grab certain players for specific roles. Ahead of the auctions, franchises released a number of players so that they can restructure their teams. Hence, these upcoming auctions will be much more interesting and intriguing. Chennai Super Kings Team has good players, but they would want to make use of the services of new players.
We can glance at the three players who could be a good fit for MS Dhoni’s team:
It was a rather very surprising move on the part of Kolkata Knight Riders to release Piyush Chawla, and CSK Team could show interest in getting this player for the upcoming season. Chawla is a sneaky player and would enjoy the sluggish conditions the Chepauk Stadium offers. Moreover, Dhoni would love to have an attacking leg-spinner which makes Chawla the right fit for the team.
As Royal Challengers Bangalore has released Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, this gives CSK Team a golden chance to have him as a cover for Shane Watson. Stoinis has the ability to open the innings, he can also be the finisher lower down the order and can be a skillful bowler with his changes of pace and well. In addition, he has always been a safe fielder. If the management does go after the Australian, it will be a good choice, one that could really boost CSK’s chances to make it to the knockout stages.
The young and energetic England bowler is just the type of player MS Dhoni wants. A run-scoring batsman in the batting order, a smooth operator with the ball and a cricketer with a solid focus, Curran was released by Kings XI Punjab and this could turn out to be a good opportunity for him to be part of this southern team. He has been performing well in the past few years with England, and so could be one of their valuable assets in the auctions.
