IPL 2024: Following the conclusion of the 2024 IPL Auction, a total of 72 players were bought by the IPL franchises, and a whopping 230.45 crore rupees were spent by all the teams in the auction on the players. Chennai Super Kings had a pretty good auction as they managed to cover all their squad requirements. Down below this article will provide you the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Expected Playing 11

At the 2024 IPL Auction, the defending champions purchased six players, with the Kiwi duo of Rachin Ravindra (1.8 crore rupees) and Daryl Mitchell (14 crore rupees) and Indian All-Rounder Shardul Thakur (4 crore rupees) being the most notable additions to the CSK roster.

The CSK management did not shy away from spending a large sum of money on youngsters, as they paid 8.40 crore rupees for Sameer Rizvi, the right-handed Suresh Raina. The 20-year-old is well-known for his exploits in the Uttar Pradesh T20 League, having scored the fastest century of the tournament in the very first season of the UP-T20.

Shardul Thakur’s acquisition provides the Yellow Army’s young pace bowling unit with some much-needed solidity and experience. The presence of Mukesh Choudhary, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur, as well as death specialists Matheesha Pathirana and Tushar Deshpande, makes CSK’s bowling attack one of the best ahead of IPL 2024.

Mustafizur Rahman was also added to the Yellow Army’s squad ahead of IPL 2024, and he would be an excellent backup for Pathirana. CSK concluded the auction process by purchasing young wicketkeeper Avanish Rao Aravelly, who would serve as a backup to skipper MS Dhoni.

With so many all-rounders at their disposal, CSK looks to have covered every spot on their roster. Their batting order is incredibly deep, as Deepak Chahar might come in to bat as late as No. 10.
