CSK has had a horrible IPL season in 2020 and will be looking forward to walking the pitch with their best team in 2021.
The IPL 2021 retention ceremony has already taken place, and franchises have taken bold steps to free the big names from their pool. The 2021 IPL mini auctions are slated to launch in February 2021, and preparations have already started. The detention ceremony took place on January 20, and the teams made their wishlists to endure a great season ahead.
The Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni, endured a terrible 2020 IPL season in the UAE, where they failed to seal the playoff spot for the first time in their IPL history. They finished seventh on the points table and the skipper has made it clear that they will bounce back with full preparation and excellent team planning to shine next season.
As CSK has finalized its list of retained and released players, they will progress with an upcoming 22.9 Cr INR scholarship. They still have a vacant spot overseas, and it will be one thing to see who they choose to make the best possible combination.
5 players CSK can target to occupy their foreign player slot in the 2021 IPL auction
1. Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell had a horrific IPL 2020 season where he failed to complete his general duties with KXIP. Management continued to support him due to his seniority, experience and past performance, but the Australian was unable to deliver in a single match.
In 13 games, he has only had 108 runs in his account with a dismal 15.42 average and has scalped three wickets in total. However, when he returned to the Australian colors, he just looked unstoppable. He was seen at his best in Australia’s limited matches against India.
He gathered some formidable fifty in his bag and pushed his team over the line. With all of this in mind, the all-rounder can return to his usual best level any day. Since he’s already out of the KXIP team, CSK might show interest in getting him back soon.
