IPL 2024 Auction: CSK get Shardul Thakur for 4 crore

Chennai Super Kings have acquired India all-rounder Shardul Thakur for Rs 4 crore in IPL 2024 Auction in Dubai on Tuesday.

Indian all-rounder Shardul Thakur made a stellar move to CSK during the IPL 2024 Auction, securing a deal for 4 Cr. MS Dhoni-led team successfully acquired Thakur, who had entered the event with a base price of 2 Cr after being released by KKR.

Shardul Thakur aims to turn over a new leaf in IPL 2024:

Shardul Thakur, with a desire to make a fresh start in IPL 2024, previously played four seasons with CSK from 2018 to 2021, contributing to two IPL title victories. Across 48 matches during this period, he claimed 55 wickets at an average of 27.52, with his standout performance in 2021 where he took 21 wickets.


After being picked by Delhi Capitals (DC) in the IPL 2022 auction and later traded to KKR for the 2023 season, Thakur faced challenges in replicating his earlier success with the ball. In IPL 2022, he secured 15 wickets in 14 matches and had a commendable season with the bat, scoring 120 runs at a strike rate of 137.93. However, in 2023, he managed seven wickets and scored 113 runs (strike rate of 161.43) from 11 matches.
