Usually, after a player leaves Chennai Super Kings, he fails to enjoy the form that he did at the franchise. That said, there are some cricketers who have still held value after leaving the successful outfit. Some of them, MS Dhoni and co. could target in the upcoming auctions. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of three former players whom CSK can target in IPL 2024 Auctions.
1) Josh Hazlewood
While Deepak Chahar is certain to open the bowling attack, it will be interesting to see who he will share the new ball with. Mukesh Chowdhary did well in IPL 2022 but he did not play in IPL 2023. Hence, it needs to be seen if he can retain the same kind of form.
CSK might need some experience in the pace department to guide the likes of Deepak and Matheesha Pathirana. Therefore, they can target someone like Josh, who won the title with them a few years ago. With his bowling, CSK can assure some top-class overs in the powerplay and may be one at the death.
2) David Willey
David Willey is one of the former players whom CSK can target in IPL 2024 Auctions. Just like Josh, even David Willey played for CSK once. However, it was a short stint.
He can also be a suitable cricketer to share the new ball with Willey. Also, the recently retired English cricketer is good with the bat. Especially against spin, he is decent. MSD likes such players and hence, they could go back in again for David.
3) Jason Holder
Not many remember that Jason Holder actually played for CSK in the beginning of his IPL career. However, his form right now is not very great.
Nevertheless, he would be a decent addition to CSK. If used well, he can get back to his best. The pitches at Chepauk could suit his bowling, as well. Therefore, CSK could target him.
