IPL 2021 CSK’s squad after the announcement of retention list
It seems just like yesterday when we were all biting nails and praying for our favourite team to win. The happy pill amidst the pandemic and a breath of fresh air that it was, the hottest tournaments of the cricketing world is here again with its 14th edition. Although the official schedule for The Indian Premier League 2021 has not been released yet, the preparations are in full swing.
All the teams have released their list of retained and released players ahead of the IPL 2021 Auction. Retaining the players and releasing some of them is a crucial decision and each franchise must do a lot of thinking before making the choice. Now that the list is here, the IPL fever has officially begun. The teams will now gear up for the mini-Auction where they will look to add a lot of talent to their squads.
The IPL auction has been scheduled for 18th of February in Chennai, right after the second India vs England test match.
Here’s the Chennai Super Kings squad.
Looking at all the announced retention lists, it seems that CSK has the most balanced team. With 19 players in its rooster and around INR 22.9 crore in the kitty, CSK is likely to buy good players in the auction.
A strong team like CSK is sure to soar high after a bad journey in the previous season. They ended up 7th on the points table after having reached the playoff stage in each of their campaigns.
Since a lot of significant players were not available, CSK had suffered blow after blow but never lost the spirit and ended their season with three consecutive victories.
Faf du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja and Ruturaj Gaikwad, Deepak Chahar and Sam curran managed to impress in the last season and have made it into the squad this time as well. Let’s have a look at the retention list.
It involves Captain Cool, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, KM Asif, Deepak Chahar, Dwayne Bravo, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, N Jagadeesan, Karn Sharma, Lungi Ngidi, Mitchell Santner, Ravindra Jadeja, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shardul Thakur, Sam Curran, Josh Hazlewood, R Sai Kishore.
