Posted on 21st Dec 2023 12:25 pm by rohit kumar

Chennai Super Kings: Chennai Super Kings team always comes with a clear strategy in the IPL auction. This team runs after only those players that they need in every auction. Something similar was seen in this year's auction. In the IPL 2024 mini auction held at the Coca-Cola Stadium in Dubai on December 19, Chennai Super Kings bought a total of 6 players, which included three Indian and three foreign players.


Chennai bought 6 players for 30.40 crores

Chennai Super Kings spent a total of Rs 30.40 crore to buy these 6 players, and yet a total of Rs 1 crore was left in their purse. Let us tell you what Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Vishwanathan said after including these 6 players in his team for IPL 2024. However, before that let us tell you about the players whom Dhoni's team has bought in this year's auction.


Daryl Mitchell (New Zealand) - All-rounder - Rs 14 crore

Sameer Rizvi (India) - Batsman - Rs 8.40 crore

Shardul Thakur (India) - All-rounder - Rs 4 crore

Mustafizur Rahman (Bangladesh) - Bowler - Rs 2 crore

Rachin Ravindra (New Zealand) - All-rounder - Rs 1.80 crore

Arabella Avneesh (India) - Wicketkeeper - Rs 20 lakh


What did the CSK CEO say?

Even before entering this auction, Chennai Super Kings had the option to buy only a maximum of 6 players, in which it was mandatory to have a maximum of 3 foreign and 3 Indian players. Accordingly, CSK has included 25 players in its squad by purchasing 3 Indian and 3 foreign players. After ending this spectacular auction, Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Vishwanathan said, "I think today was a very fortunate day for us, because we were successful in buying the players whom we wanted mostly. Like we got replacements for Ben Stokes, Dwayne Pretorius, and Kyle Jameson. We were successful in getting all-rounders. We were very lucky to get Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra."


Chennai got Pathirana's backup

He further said, "Apart from this, we have got Mustafizur as a backup to Mathisha Pathirana. This is what the team management wanted. That is why we are very fortunate that we got the players we wanted. Shardul is back in the team. We are very happy to have brought him in. I think we got Shardul at a very good price because we were expecting the all-rounder slot to be much more expensive. I am very happy that Shardul is back, he has played for CSK. He has made important contributions to India, and I am sure he will continue to do well."



Team management had its eye on Sameer Rizvi

Talking about Sameer Rizvi, CSK CEO further said, "The team management had seen Sameer Rizvi doing well in many domestic tournaments, so we felt that he would be a good backup for our batting. We are lucky to have him. We were successful in getting the players that Thala (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) had demanded. We are hopeful that our team will perform very well with this combination."


CSK squad for IPL 2024: Ajay Mandal, Ajinkya Rahane, Deepak Chahar, Devon Conway, Mahesh Theekshana, Mathisha Pathirana, Mitchell Santner, Moeen Ali, MS Dhoni, Mukesh Chaudhary, Nishant Sindhu, Prashant Solanki, Rajvardhan Hangarkar, Ravindra Jadeja, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sheikh Rashid, Shivam Dubey, Simarjit Singh, Tushar Deshpande
