Chennai Super Kings have a settled squad filled with seasoned campaigners. They are one of the most consistent teams in the history of the tournament.  Their focus must be on getting some cheap buys as they don’t have much purse left. They would like to add one finisher and an express fast bowler to their squad.

What Chennai Super Kings bought…

Sam Curran- INR 5.5Cr

Piyush Chawla-INR 6.75Cr

Josh Hazelwood-INR 2Cr

Auction Rating:  7/10

How they stand after auction:

They got a fast bowler in Josh Hazelwood as a backup for Lungi Ngidi and an all-rounder in the form of Sam Curran as a backup for Dwayne Bravo. They also purchased Piyush Chawla in their already too-many spin bowling department.

However, they would think they are short of a proper batsman or a finisher. With the prowess of Dhoni as a finisher on decline they would not have minded a finisher.
