CSK has a very strong squad but still needs to fill a few gaps.
Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will come to the IPL 2024 auction with the intention of further strengthening their squad. The team’s lineup was great last season, but there are a few roles that need to be filled. With a limited purse at the mini-auction, these are the players CSK will look to buy in the IPL 2024 auction:
|Azmatullah Omarzai||Afghanistan||Batting All-rounder|
|Gerald Coetzee||South Africa||Pace Bowler|
|Sadeera Samarawickrama||Sri Lanka||Wicketkeeper Batter|
|Pat Cummins||Australia||Bowling Allrounder|
Azmatullah Omarzai/Pat Cummins for Ben Stokes
CSK could drop the injury-prone All-rounder after buying England Test Skipper Ben Stokes for INR 16.25 crore. The southpaw scored just 15 runs in two matches and only bowled one over during the last season.
Azmatullah omarzai, who scored over 350 runs in nine matches and took seven wickets, wowed the world at the 2023 World Cup. Pat Cummins on the other had a successful IPL career over six seasons. Picking 45 wickets in just 42 matches, while hitting the ball with a strike rate of over 150.
