Being the second most successful franchise with four titles to their, Chennai Super Kings had a very indifferent season and finished 9th on the points table in IPL 2022. With the next season of the edition probably the last season for MS Dhoni, they will be eager to make a comeback next season and claim their fifth title.
3 CSK players who might not get a chance to play in IPL 2023
Chennai Super Kings had a decent auction. They were focused on buying certain players and it’s fair to say that they were quite composed and were on the mark. They brought the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sindhu, Kyle Jamieson, Ajay Mandal, and Bhagath Varma. With IPL just a few months away, let’s take a look at 3 CSK players who might not get a chance to play in IPL 2023
Ajinkya Rahane might be one unlucky player to miss out and not get a chance in the playing 11 for Chennai Super Kings. He was acquired by the franchise for his base price. But will lots of traffic at the top of the order, it is very unlikely that he will get an opportunity. With the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and others having the ability to bat in the top 3, it’s fair to say that Rahane will be the last preference of the team.

Lanky New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson is another player who might not get a chance to play in IPL 2023. It’s fair to say that CSK will play Moeen Ali, Devon Conway, Ben Stokes and Mahesh Theekshana as the four overseas players in the team and it’s unlikely the Jamieson will get a chance in Indian pitches, which is spin friendly. CSK also has quality pacers in the team and the presence of Ben Stokes will boost that more and might lock the doors for Jamieson to play.
Young pacer Rajvardhan Hangargekar might also not get a chance to play in the IPL 2023. The pacer won the U19 World Cup and was acquired by CSK ahead of the 2022 auction. With the likes of seniors in the team, it is very unlikely that he will get a chance in playing 11. It’s fair to say that he will the last pacer on the pecking order with the likes of Deepak Chahar, Mukesh Choudary, and Simranjeet Singh all in the mix, Hangargekar might have to wait for one more season to make his debut.
