Chennai Super King’s performance was not up to mark in 2022, which caused a huge disappointment for CSK fans and the CSK team. Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had won the IPL trophy four times under his captaincy but his performance in 2022 was not so good. One big reason was to retain four players only due to the new auction rule. But again all CSK fans are very hopeful for CSK’s performance in the IPL 2023.
In IPL 2023, CSK can retain 5 players. The name of the retained player.
1. Devon Conway
New Zealand batsman Devon Conway had a brilliant performance in the last few matches of 2022 with Rituraj Gaikwad. He got a chance to play in the last 7 matches of IPL 2022 and gave his best performance in which he also scored three half-centuries and scored 252 runs at a strike rate of 145.66 so in the 2023 IPL. Devon Conway will be retained by Chennai super kings.
2. Moeen Ali
Moeen Ali was earlier retained by CSK in the 2022 mega auction for 8 crores. He is a stylish English all-rounder. He played 15 matches in the 2021 IPL, scored a total of 357 runs and also took six wickets, his performance was very good. In the IPL of 2022, he had a total of 244 runs in 10 matches and the highest score of 93 and also took 8 wickets in 10 matches in bowling. So Moeen Ali is also going to return for CSK IPL 2023. CSK also contribute well with his excellent batting and bowling at number three.
3. Ruturaj Gaikwad
Rituraj Gaikwad is a great option for CSK, he should return to in 2023 as he has been a fine opening batsman. Rituraj will continue to achieve the same performance in 2023. After scoring 16 matches, 635 runs, and 101* highest score in IPL 2021, Ruturaj Gaikwad was retained by CSK for 6 crores in the league’s 2022 season. And in the 2022 IPL, he scored a total of 386 runs in 14 matches and scored 99 runs which is the highest score by Rituraj Gaikwad.
4. Ravindra Jadeja
In the 2012 IPL, Jadeja was almost bought by the Chennai Super Kings. 9.8 crores making him the greatest player of the year auction. Jadeja represented Gujarat Lions for 2 seasons, returned with CSK in the league’s eleventh IPL, and retained the outstanding all-rounder for ₹16 crores in the 2022 IPL. Ravindra Jadeja has been an honorary player of CSK and MS Dhoni since then. Whenever Dhoni needed to break the partnership, Ravindra used to speak to Jadeja. Now when it comes to batting, Jadeja is a great left-handed batsman. Has presented a great performance on many occasions. Although Jadeja didn’t have anything special in 2022, there was also some rumour that the release from CSK would be done in 2023. But let us tell you that or all the rumour is wrong. It is a different matter that Sir Jadeja has deleted all the posts related to CSK. But here CSK 2023 will return Sir Jadeja. Because it is very difficult to find an all-rounder like Sir Jadeja.
5. MS Dhoni
Mahendra Singh Dhoni: when this name comes to the heart and mind, people think of an outstanding captain and powerhouse in batting. His ability to destroy various bowling attacks makes the impossible possible. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s cricketing brain and his calmness are a deadly combination on the cricket field. CSK’s trophy! The shining gold trophy in the cabinet is a testament to his exceptional leadership skills. Dhoni has earned IPL trophies 4 times (2010, 2011,2018, and 2021) and has also been five times runner-up. He batted brilliantly in 2022 and we are sure that in 2023 he will be seen captaining CSK.
Which are the other players, CSK can target in IPL 2023?
Chennai Super Kings can also call Suresh Raina again this time. Because staying for CSK has also proved to be a lucky player. And his fan in CSK is also very tremendous, that matter is different, Raina was involved in the commentary team in the 2022 season.
The former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) legend found no takers, and even though CSK showed interest in buying the likes of Dwayne Bravo, who had previously been with the franchise, he distanced himself from Raina. However, Suresh Don’t worry Raina fans as the former Indian batsman will actually be seen batting in IPL 2023.
England all-rounder San Curran who was out of the first auction in the Indian Premier League 2022, may return in 2023. Good for CSK who can bring CSK back into their team. Let us tell you that the CSK team can also target Reece Topley. Reece Topley is one of England’s finest fast bowlers. Recently India did well against India and CSK team can also target David Malan. The player can be seen playing for Chennai Super Kings in the 2023 IPL.
