CSK Playing XI: The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have made some strategic moves in the IPL 2024 Auction, shaping a formidable squad ahead of the upcoming season. With a squad strength of 25, including 8 overseas players, CSK has aimed to cover all bases for a well-rounded performance.

The team has also bolstered its all-rounder lineup with the inclusion of Daryl Mitchell for a hefty sum of INR 14 crore. Mitchell joins Rachin Ravindra as a crucial addition, providing valuable options in both batting and bowling.

Shardul Thakur, acquired for INR 4 crore, will serve as the team’s bowling all-rounder, adding depth to their pace attack. The squad also features Sameer Rizvi, INR 8.4 crore, as a replacement for Ambati Rayudu. Additionally, Mustafizur Rahman, acquired for INR 2 crore, adds a valuable option to cover for the injury-prone Matheesha Pathirana.

While CSK managed to secure key players, they did miss out on Gerald Coetzee and Alzarri Joseph, players who could have further strengthened their lineup. Coetzee’s association with their SA20 side, Johannesburg Super Kings, was evident in the bidding process.
