CSK also kept their star drummer Suresh Raina ahead of the 2021 IPL auction.
Ahead of the 2021 IPL auction, the Chennai Super Kings released six players from their pool, and the names did not surprise anyone. CSK has decided to let go of Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla, Kedar Jadhav, Monu Kumar. Besides them, Shane Watson has also been released by the yellow franchise, which has already bid farewell to the league after the conclusion of IPL 2020. The upcoming auction will be really meaningful for CSK in terms of their team management and planning after failing terribly last year.
After releasing Kedar Jadhav and Piyush Chawla, CSK added a huge amount to their purse before going up for auction. The MS Dhoni-led franchise only had 15 lakh INR in its purse, but after offloading six players it had 22.9 crore in its bag, but now the amount is not the same. Currently, CSK has a budget of 19.9 crore as they decided to call on veteran Robin Uthappa in an all-cash deal.
Robin Uthappa hasn’t had a great season with the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020. However, after releasing six players, CSK decided to move to Uthappa the day after RR after offering an amount of INR 3 crore. Since this was a full cash deal, RR’s handbag rose to INR 37.85 crore, and they can easily opt to be lavish while picking one of their favorites in the next auction. .
