Which Players CSK Will Buy In 2022 From Tamil Nadu
#5 C Hari Nishanth
C Hari Nishanth is a dynamic opener. He looks to attack right from the word go. Nishanth takes on both pace and spin alike. He had a fruitful domestic season. Nishanth’s numbers don’t really justify his talent. He has currently scored 593 runs at a strike rate of 124.8 averaging 26.9. In the absence of Faf Du Plessis, Nishanth can be groomed into the role as an opener.
#4 Washington Sundar
Washington Sundar is probably India’s best defensive bowler in T20I cricket. He hardly gives away runs and has the ability to bowl in the powerplay. Sundar did a commendable job for RCB before suffering from a finger injury. He has only once conceded above 50 runs in 90-odd games that he has played. Sundar will relish bowling in Chennai. CSK will surely have an eye over him in the auctions.
#3 Sai Kishore
Sai Kishore is one of the most hardworking cricketers in the domestic circuit. He has been Tamil Nadu’s silent warrior for over a few years now. His economical bowling is an added bonus apart from his wicket-taking ability. He is a very difficult bowler to get away with. Kishore also showcased his batting abilities in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. CSK loves multi-faceted cricketers. Kishore is just one of them.
#2 Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin is an IPL stalwart. He played a big part in CSK’s glory days. Ashwin was instrumental in their home dominance. He was one of India’s most innovative bowlers in this format. Ashwin has received a second wind of life in white-ball cricket this year.
He was India’s standout spinner in the T20 World Cup and in the New Zealand series. His selection in the ODIs for South Africa speaks volumes about his growth as a white-ball spinner. Ashwin has stated personally that CSK is like a home for him. It will be some homecoming if CSK manages to nab him in the mega auctions.
#1 Shahrukh Khan
Shahrukh Khan has emerged as one of the finest finishers in the domestic circuit. He showcased his class in the SMAT 2021 finals to smash a six off the final ball to win the trophy. Khan has been in sizzling form in the Vijay Hazare too. As he represents Tamil Nadu in the domestic circuit, he will bring in local flavor too for CSK. He will arguably be the biggest domestic name CSK will be contesting for in the auctions.
