IPL 2024: Players CSK might release ahead of IPL 2024 Auction, Chennai Super Kings Squad: The Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 ended just a couple of days ago and it turned out to be a fairytale season for Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The yellow brigade under MS Dhoni’s leadership got its fifth IPL title by defeating Gujarat Titans (GT) in the IPL 2023 Final by five wickets.
With season 16 of the lucrative league done and dusted, the 10 IPL franchises will indulge themselves in planning and strategising for the next edition of the tournament. CSK, being the defending champions, will be in the limelight for their performance and the fans would expect them to replicate their previous show in IPL 2024 as well.
CSK saw some players rising to the occasion and proving their worth in gold, however, a few players remained pale and untested throughout the season. The new IPL season will bring some new faces into the side and for that, a couple of players need to be released from the squad ahead of the IPL 2024 Auction.
This article will lead you through IPL 2024: Players CSK might release ahead of IPL 2024 Auction, Chennai Super Kings Squad.
Players CSK Might Release Ahead of IPL 2024 Auction
Middle-order batter Ambati Rayudu is a no-brainer as the cricketer himself has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket following CSK’s title victory at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Rayudu didn’t have the best of seasons in the IPL 2023 with his bat staying quiet for the most part of the tournament. In 12 outings in IPL 2023, Ambati Rayudu could only score 142 runs at an average of 15.78. Interestingly, his IPL 2022 outing stands out to be more fruitful than the IPL 2023 one, with him scoring 274 runs in just 11 innings.
Now, the talks about his stats become irrelevant as the cricketer has bid adieu to the game of cricket. It will be interesting if he can come into the league in another capacity.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) roped in South African pacer Sisanda Magala as a replacement for Kiwi all-rounder Kyle Jamieson for the IPL 2023. Jamieson was ruled out of the IPL 2023 after suffering an injury.
Magala was expected to make use of his rich experience of franchise cricket, however, he couldn’t get a long rope in the side. The Protea pacer featured in two games for CSK in which he scalped a solitary wicket at a decent economy of 8.50.
Looking at the pace firepower at CSK it’s unlikely that the five times IPL champions would retain him for IPL 2024. Moreover, CSK would love to have Kyle Jamieson back as he gives much more flexibility to the franchise.
