IPL 2022 – Chennai Super Kings Final Squad

The 2022 IPL mega auction has come to an end, and it has been one that has kept the fans at the edge of their seats. All the franchises went ahead and strengthened their squads ahead of the 15th edition of the IPL.

The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) did what they have always focused on. They strengthened their ‘core’ team at the auction and bought most of the players who have been an integral part of their side in the last few years.

On the first day, CSK acquired players such as Dwayne Bravo, Ambati Rayudu, Robin Uthappa, and Deepak Chahar. These are four cricketers who were part of the “core team” of the four-time IPL champions. Uthappa received INR 2 crores, but CSK spent INR 4.40 million and INR 6.75 crores respectively to purchase Bravo and Rayudu’s services.

There was a massive bidding war for Deepak Chahar, with teams like Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Rajasthan Royals fighting it out with CSK. However, the ‘Men in Yellow’ went all out, splashed INR 14 Crore to get the services of Chahar. The 2 other players whom they bought on Day 1 were KM Asif and Tushar Deshpande for INR 20 Lakh each.

Day 2 for CSK was all about plugging the gaps that had in various positions across the board. Sri Lankan Maheesh Theekshana was a steal at INR 70 Lakh, while Adam Milne was pouched for INR 1.9 Crore. Devon Conway was another addition to the list, and the ‘Men in Yellow’ spent INR 1 Crore to procure the services of the Kiwi. And finally, Chris Jordan was bought for a sum of INR 3.6 Crore.

The ‘Men in Yellow’ have retained their main squad once again, and have added some newbies as well. And surely, with MS Dhoni leading them in IPL 2022, the Yellow Brigade will be gunning for their 5th IPL title.
