According to several reports, MS Dhoni is really eager to get Sam Curran back to the Chennai Super Kings at whatever cost: As we all know, only a few days are left until the IPL auction in 2023. The auction will start at 14.30 PM on Friday, with all the franchises lining up at the auction table with the intention of strengthening their respective teams. If we talk about Chennai, then all the cricket experts and their supporters believe that this could be Dhoni’s last year, and after that, he will say goodbye to the IPL as well. Many experts also say that Dhoni can say goodbye to the team even in the middle of the IPL, so this year is going to be fatal for the Chennai Super Kings.
MS Dhoni is really eager to get Sam Curran back to the CSK at whatever cost
After Bravo’s retirement, the team will definitely miss him. He used to play an important role for the team with his bowling and finishing touch. Be it breaking a partnership, bowling in the middle of the innings, or in the death overs, Bravo used to play an important role in every situation with his bowling skills. Bravo did not get much chance to bat in the 2022 edition, but he did well for the team with his bowling. He took a total of 16 wickets in 10 matches last year with an economy of 8.71
Some reports say that Dhoni has suggested bringing back Sam Curran to the CSK team at any cost. The franchise is left with Rs 20.45 crore, with which they have to buy a total of 7 players. If the franchise spends up to 12 crores on Sam Curran, the remaining funds can be used to hire six players. Other franchises may be interested in Sam Curran, but the question is whether they can afford to pay 12-13 crores for him. Because, with the exception of Hyderabad, no franchise has that much money to spend on a single player.
Hyderabad has the highest purse balance, but they also have to buy a total of 13 players for their team. That is why they can bid more than 12 to 14 crores on a single player. If they bid 13-14 crores on Ben Stokes, they cannot afford to invest that much in Sam Curran. As a result, Chennai may find it simple to reintegrate Sam into the team.
