IPL 2023 Auction CSK Live 3 days to go: Three days are left in the 16th season of the Indian Premier League auction. Chennai Super Kings wanted to buy players like Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, Cameron Green, and Ishant Sharma so they could reassemble their winning squad, but is this possible with the current purse value of Rs. 20.45 crores? CSK has to fill 7 slots, among which they can go for a maximum of 2 overseas players.
🏏IPL 2023 Auction CSK: Why may CSK not go for Sam Curran?
Sam Curran performed admirably in the 2022 T20 World Cup. Mumbai Indians need an alternative to Bumrah, and on the other side, if you see Sunrisers Hyderabad, they have Rs. 42.25 crores in their purse, which they can spend, but they need to fill 13 slots. Apart from the Chennai Super Kings, these teams—Sunrisers Hyderabad, Lucknow Super Giants, Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, and Gujarat Titans—may also bid for Sam Curran. In those circumstances, the Sam Curran auction’s bidding value may go up to Rs. 14 to 15 crores. After spending this much money on only one player, it will be tough to go after other good players.
Even though this IPL 2023 Auction is a mini-auction, a lot of good players’ names are on the auction list, so every team need to decide wisely when bidding on cricketers like Sam Curran, Cameron Green and Ben Stokes.
if CSK spent Rs. 14 Crores💰on Sam Curran then CSK will be left with only Rs. 6.45 crores to fill the rest of the 6 slots and in that case, he might lose Mayank Agrawal or Kane Williamson which CSK might be looking for Dhoni’s successor.
