3 Ex-CSK Players that Chennai Super Kings can target at the IPL 2024 Auction
The preparation for the Indian Premier League 2024 is in full swing. The upcoming auction will be held in Dubai on December 19. Chennai Super Kings won the last edition and will be defending their title. CSK retained their core players ahead of the IPL 2024 auction, but the franchise will be eyeing some players to strengthen their time.
Ben Stokes was released, Ambati Rayudu has retired, and CSK might look to pick a few more players for their lineup. The Chennai franchise mostly prefers veteran players, but the franchise might also think to look for their former players who have already represented CSK in the IPL. Here we will talk about the three players that played for CSK and the franchise might look to sign them back at the IPL 2024 auction.
Three former CSK players that Chennai Super Kings can target at the IPL 2024 Auction
3. Kedhar Jadhav
Kedar Jadhav was part of the CSK for three seasons (2018–2020). He was an important batter for the team and had a specific role in the batting order. Kedar played 18 innings for CSK and scored 248 runs with a high score of 58. With Rayudu not available, he can be an ideal player to replace him in the batting order.
2. Jason Holder
West Indian all-rounder Jason Holder also played in the yellow jersey and made his IPL debut with CSK in 2013. He was part of RR in 2023 and was released later on. Now, he is available to be signed at the auction, and being an all-rounder, a number of franchises might go after him. With no Stokes, Holder can provide the team with a genuine all-rounder option, and CSK might target him at the IPL 2024 auction.
1. Josh Hazlewood
Josh Hazlewood was part of the IPL 2021-winning CSK team. The Australian pacer played for Chennai in 2020 and 2021. He played 12 games for them and took 12 wickets; later, RCB signed him. Hazlewood is an improved T20 bowler, and he has proven himself at the international level. Thus, there are chances that CSK might go after him at the IPL 2024 auction.
