Chennai Super Kings is slowly developing a squad for the future while also winning trophies in the present. It is in the batting department and maybe also in the spin group that CSK might have to invest further. They could pick some youngsters in the current India A setup. Here, we take a look at two talented players from the current India A squad whom CSK can target for IPL 2024.
1) Yuvrajsinh Dodiya
The Saurashtra all-rounder has been impressive in recent months at the domestic level. In the Emerging Teams Asia Cup, as well, he has put on some notable performances. A right-arm off-break spinner and a right-hand batter, he can be a fine pick for CSK.
Currently, CSK has Moeen Ali and Maheesh Theekshana as the right-arm off-spinners. Both are overseas options and hence, CSK might need an Indian option. Therefore, they can target someone like Yuvrajsinh Dodiya. He would be a good investment for the outfit.
2) Pradosh Ranjan Paul
Pradosh Ranjan Paul is one of the players from the current India A squad whom CSK can target for IPL 2024. The Tamil Nadu cricketer has not got opportunities to play in the Asia Cup but he is one of the brightest talents going around. A top-order operator, Pradosh has already left a mark in the longer formats. His game definitely needs upgradation in the T20 format and he can do that at CSK.
Life after MS Dhoni is a big area of concern for CSK. They need to identify quality wicket-keeper batters for the franchise. They can target someone like Pradosh, who is a home-grown player and also has a bright future. He can be an option for the franchise at No.3 in the future. If he comes off, it would be great for the team to have a local player handling an important role.
