IPL 2023 – 3 Released players from the Chennai Super Kings, who may attract bids at the auction

The IPL mini-auction is almost approaching, and organisations have parted ways with certain players who did not live up to expectations. Several organisations have shown no compassion to their previous top-tier performances this time by excluding them from their teams for 2023. These names, which did not make the retention list, will be auctioned off on December 23, 2022, in Kochi.

These significant people may no longer be valuable to their old franchises, but other teams may be enticed to add them to their rosters in the next auction based on their reputation and performance in international T20Is. CSK, the four-time IPL winner, has released several well-known personalities that have done well for them and have the ability to provide performances with their brilliance for IPL 2023. No one can deny their skill based on their outstanding track record in the league and international cricket.

Number 1. Chris Jordan

Chris Jordan was purchased by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for INR 3.60 crore. He was primarily chosen to address the concerns around death bowling. However, the England bowler seemed to be out of sync, collecting just two wickets in four games at a dismal economy rate of 10.52.

He didn’t accomplish much for CSK in the last edition, but his recent performance in two World Cup games against India and Pakistan should earn him another IPL contract in the mini-auction. Teams like the Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC) may make a bid for him to bolster their bowling assault.

On his day, he could unsettle any batting line-up in the world with his ability to hit 140 km/h and bowl precise yorkers and bouncers. He might emerge as one of the headline players in the upcoming auction, attracting a sizable fee from organisations.

Number 2. Adam Milne

Adam Milne was purchased by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 2022 auction for INR 1.90 crore and appeared in only one game and bowled just 15 deliveries before sustaining a hamstring injury and was ruled out of the tournament. He couldn’t make it in CSK’s scheme of things after failing to obtain his services totally in the previous season, thus the franchise chose to discharge him.

The teams may be interested in him in the auction since the New Zealand cricketer can routinely bowl between 140 and 150 km/h. With his speed, he might gain a spot in the Punjab Kings (PBKS) to aid Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, and Rahul Chahar. While with the Gujarat Titans, he may be a key figure in the pace attack with Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya.

He was a member of the New Zealand cricket squad that competed in the T20 World Cup in 2022. He couldn’t play any matches in the competition due to the presence of other top-tier bowlers Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson, but based on his talent, the Kiwi bowler is capable of wrecking any order with his sheer speed.

Number 3. Dwayne Bravo

Dwayne Bravo was not on the Chennai Super Kings’ retention list for the 2023 season. Bravo, who has played in every CSK season since 2011, struggled last season. He has failed to bring desired results to the club for the previous four years, which was a major cause for him to go under the hammer last year to return to CSK for a reduced fee of INR 4.40 crores.

This year, CSK has left him off the retention list once again, and other franchises may be interested in acquiring his services. He was unproductive with both the bat and the ball last year, collecting just 23 runs at an average of 11.50 and claiming 16 wickets at a costly economy rate of 8.71. The former West Indies all-rounder played with the Mumbai Indians from 2008 to 2010, and the MI might trust him to fill the shoes of their old servant Kieron Pollard this time around.

On the other hand, clubs like as the Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals, and Sunrisers Hyderabad are in need of great all-rounders, and they may try to sign him in the forthcoming auction. Bravo, with his expertise and abilities, can be an asset to any club.
