The following are the five players who will be released by CSK:
The juggernaut of Indian cricket in the last decade, MS Dhoni is likely to be removed from the squad of Chennai Super Kings. The stalwart of present day cricket failed to impress the selectors and lost his position to Rishabh Pant. Though MS Dhoni is yet to announce his formal retirement, it is likely that he might join the support staff of the super strong CSK team.
Kedar was a bright prospect and MS Dhoni’s trusted wingman. However, Kedar lost his place in the Indian team and is likely to lose his place in the CSK team as well.
The leg spinner played just 1 game in the IPL 2019 edition and failed to impress in the same. Harbhajan Singh’s rise as a strike bowler took away the limelight from Karn Sharma’s prospects last season. Hence, he is likely to be released.
A strong contender for the opening position, Murali Vijay failed to impress Dhoni and the selectors for a permanent position in the team. CSK is known for its experimentation and Murali Vijay got just two games to prove his might in the last edition.
Sam Billings / David Willey
Lungi, Watson, Du Plessis, Tahir and Bravo are the favorites among the overseas players for CSK. It was clearly evident that Dhoni did not want to risk it with Sam Billings and David Willey even when CSK was in a considerably good position in the points table last season.
