CSK Full Squad: CSK bet big on Kiwis – MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings always relied on their core players and built a strong team around them. This time, it was no different. Although they broke banks for Deepak Chahar, CSK also signed DJ Bravo and Ambati Rayudu back. But the focus seemed to be on New Zealanders as CSK picked up three Kiwis to strengthen the squad.

Amongst major signings, picking up Devon Conway for just 1 Cr as a replacement for Faf du Plessis was a steal of a deal. Other two Kiwi players were Adam Milne (1.9 Cr) and Mitchell Santner (1.9 Cr).

“Yesterday, out of the ten players, nine were ex-CSK players. We had planned as we normally do and the credit goes to the skipper and coach. We picked players as per their wish. We thought the best replacement could be Devon Conway, because he has been doing well. Fleming has seen him in New Zealand. Milne has been in the IPL earlier, and we couldn’t afford Josh, so he replaces him well,” CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan said after the auction.

Chennai Super Kings also went out of their way in the auction. They broke banks for Deepak Chahar after missing out on Faf du Plessis to rivals Royal Challengers Bangalore. At 14 Cr, Chahar became CSK’s costliest auction pick ever.

“Deepak Chahar has been the most consistent players for us and he has been doing well in his battig as well. Given what he has done for CSK, we knew we had to go after him. We were disappointed at missing Faf. Thakur and him were crucial part of the team over the last few years. It was disappointing to let them go because we didn’t have the money for them,” Kasi Viswanathan added,
