“CSK didn’t use Rayudu properly in the last season”, Twitter reacts to the reports that Chennai Super Kings could release Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo

Chennai Super Kings are one of the consistent teams in the history of the Indian Premier League. Their conversion rate in the group stage is so good that they often qualify for the playoffs and have also made it a habit in the first place.

Although they missed out on qualifying for the playoffs in the last season, they are expected to make changes in their arsenal only to make a comeback in the next season. As per the reports, the next season could be MS Dhoni’s last season.

Reports were rife that MS Dhoni expected to kick-start his new innings in training Indian players after the conclusion of the IPL 2023 season. Under MS Dhoni’s captaincy, CSK accomplished great things in their journey.
