IPL 2023 will start on March 31st. The first game will be between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans. CSK made a crazy signing at the auction by bringing onboard England Test skipper Ben Stokes. Here, we take a look at how Chennai Super Kings reacted to the photo of two best all-rounders set to play for them in IPL 2023.
Two top all-rounders in Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2023
CSK is one franchise that has always relied on all-rounders to do the job for them. They are known for their batting depth and sometimes, we have also seen capable batters at No.10 in this setup. This is MS Dhoni’s philosophy of a T20 squad and CSK has always been loyal to it.
Now, the franchise has gone to the next level by setting up an exciting combination. At the moment, if you take a look at the best all-rounders in the games, the names of Ben Stokes and Ravindra Jadeja come first to the mind. Both these men will be taking the field together for CSK in IPL 2023. It will be a terrific sight for the fans to witness them in action and help CSK win a lot of games. Even the franchise was not able to contain the excitement after seeing these two together. Here is how CSK reacted to the picture of Jadeja and Stokes in the CSK training kit:

CSK has a good chance in the upcoming campaign
The franchise did not have a great outing in IPL 2022. However, as they have done before, the MS Dhoni-led unit will be expected to execute a strong comeback.
Ben Stokes will have a massive influence on this setup. He is likely to operate in the top-order. With Mukesh Choudhary missing out, Stokes could also get a chance to bowl in the powerplay. If he does well, CSK can reach the playoffs of IPL 2023.
