Defending champions Chennai Super Kings have compiled one of the most balanced squads ahead of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League. CSK spent a whopping amount of INR 14 crores to buy the services of Deepak Chahar. Besides, they also brought the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Ambati Rayudu, and Robin Uthappa back into the team. We will cover Chennai Super Kings Probable XI, Key Batsmen, Bowlers, All-rounders for IPL 2022 in this article.
Before the auctions, they retained MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, and Ambati Rayudu. Heading into the 15th edition of the tournament, we take a look at 2 key batsmen, key bowlers, and key all-rounders of Chennai Super Kings.
Key Batsmen To Watch Out For :
- Devon Conway
Ruturaj Gaikwad: Young sensation Ruturaj Gaikwad had an outstanding season with the bat in the 2021 edition. He played an instrumental role for CSK, scoring 635 runs in 16 matches at an average of 45.36. He topped the run charts and helped his team lift the trophy.
CKS bought Devon Conway for INR 1 crore. The New Zealand cricketer is currently one of the best white-ball cricketers going around. He is a like-for-like replacement for Faf du Plessis and is likely to make big impact with the bat for the franchise in the upcoming edition of the tournament.
Key All-rounders To Watch Out For:
- Moeen Ali:
CSK made great use of Moeen Ali in the last season by promoting him at number three in the batting order. The move worked wonders for them as he dished out sensational performances consistently throughout the tournament. In 15 matches, he managed to score 357 runs at 25.50.
- Ravindra Jadeja:
There is no doubt that Ravindra Jadeja’s stocks have seen a sharp rise in the last couple of years as far as white-ball cricket is concerned. He has made great improvement in his batting and is one of the biggest assets for CSK. It will be interesting to see where he bats in the batting order for CSK in the upcoming edition of the tournament.
Key Bowlers To Watch Out For:
Dwayne Bravo has played an instrumental role in the success of CSK in the Indian Premier League. Bravo has been nothing short of outstanding for the franchise over the years. His ability to bowl in all phases of the innings makes him a valuable asset for the team. He will, once again, be a vital cog for the team in the next edition of the tournament.
Chennai Super Kings spent a whopping 14 crores to buy Deepak Chahar back into the team. It is their most expensive buy at the auctions in the history of the tournament. Chahar, however, might miss out on the major chunk of the tournament due to an injury.
