CSK IPL 2023 Auction Review

CSK IPL 2023 Mega Auction Review

IPL 2023 Mega Auction was no different for CSK. Their strategy was same, to trust their existing players. Chennai Super Kings once again invested in most of their previous squad. It was quite shocking that Chennai didn’t bid for Suresh Raina  in the last auction, but except him, the management aimed at building the same squad.  CSK have always shown trust in a particular player rather than rummaging for two in the IPL bush. They have always valued the experience of players.

CSK, known for their consistency and stability, have retained their core group of players for the 2023 season. Under the astute leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, CSK has remained a formidable force on the field. Dhoni’s calmness and tactical brilliance continue to inspire the team. The retention of experienced players like Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali ensures that the CSK 2023 team retains its much-admired stability and expertise.

While CSK has been known for its loyalty to its core players, the team management has made some exciting additions to bolster the CSK 2023 squad. In the 2023 IPL auction, CSK made a statement by acquiring talented players who bring a fresh energy to the team. They invested in promising all-rounder Ben Stokes and Ajinkya Rahane. These acquisitions highlight CSK’s focus on building a versatile team capable of adapting to various match situations.

Later on in the auctions, they bought the following players:-

IPL 2023 : Chennai Super Kings Team Analysis

CSK Squad 2023: Batsmen

CSK Best Playing XI - Ruturaj Gaikwad
CSK Best Playing XI – Ruturaj Gaikwad

In IPL 2021, CSK had the best opening combination of Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Unfortunately, CSK lost Faf du Plessis to RCB, CSK bought Devon Conway as the replacement of Faf. Now Ben Stokes is all there. There is some doubt over the opening combination of the team in IPL 2023.

Ruturaj Gaikwad will be there to support Conway.  Ruturaj’s stakes have been very high after being retained by CSK ahead of the Auction. Opening will definitely not going to be a problem for CSK. CSK will have the same middle-order as in IPL 2021 final.

CSK Squad 2023 : Wicketkeepers

The team have the best wicket-keeper, MS Dhoni. Dhoni has not been so good in the last few seasons with the bat but there has never been any issue with his keeping. Raydu is also able to keep the gloves for team.

CSK Squad 2023 : All-Rounders

CSK have the world’s best all-rounders in its squad. The likes of Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali will get the support of Ben Stokes. Moeen will be used as a strong batting all-rounder at 3. At present, Jadeja is best in his position who is a complete all-rounder at 7. Ben Stokes have been brought in as the replacement of DJ Bravo who was unable to perform at the desired level.

CSK Squad 2023 : Bowlers

This is the only area which has seen the most changes in CSK’s squad. In 2021, Josh Hazlewood, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar were the main bowlers of CSK. However, CSK doesn’t have much strength in their bowling unit. In the 2023 auctions, CSK have bought Kylie Jamieson but it would be difficult to adjust him in CSK playing 11.

CSK 2023 Team Review

CSK has built the IPL 2023 squad on the foundation of its senior players. The veterans of the team will be one of their greatest strengths in the next IPL season. Death Bowling will be the major concern for CSK in IPL 2023. They should have bid high for a lethal fast bowler who could give support to Chahar. Another issue which the franchise will need to address is to finalize their four overseas players.

CSK Playing 11 2023 (Probable XI)

  1. Ruturaj Gaikwad
  2. Moeen Ali
  3. Ambati Rayudu
  4. Ben Stokes
  5. MS Dhoni (C&WK)
  6. Ravindra Jadeja
  7. Dwaine Pretorius
  8. Kylie Jamieson
  9. Deepak Chahar
  10. Mukesh Chowdhary
  11. Maheesh Theekshana
