Complete List Of Players In CSK And Pricing: Chennai Super Kings Team 2019

Chennai Super Kings Overview

CSK had a stellar last season, with the team trumping Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the 2018 IPL title. Naturally, they did the needful and preserved their core team in the transfer window. In fact, they allowed just three players to leave, viz., Mark Wood, Kanishk Seth, Kshitiz Sharma.

That meant that the team had only two slots available going into the auctions, with both of them going to Indian players.

And as was expected, they were always in the market to apply some final finishes to their squad, having retained the almost the entire squad beforehand. Even though they played a minor role during the 2019 auction, they did bring in some value additions in the squad, especially in the Indian fast-bowling department. They had initially bid high for Jaydev Unadkat, but with them being restricted with a strict purse of just over ₹8 crore, they decided to back off, with the Saurashtra player going to his former employers Rajasthan Royals instead. 

The auctions really had a theme of reunion, with many notable players going back to their former clubs even though some of them had been released just a couple of months ago by those exact teams.

It did not come as a surprise, as a result, that CSK went all out to buy their long-time serviceman Mohit Sharma, securing his services for Rs 5 crore. He had essayed key roles for the team in the past and thankfully they returned the favour by putting in an enormous amount of trust in him. Ruturaj Gaikwad was the other addition by the South Indian team.

Squad strength: 25

Players bought in the auction: 2 (Mohit Sharma Rs 5 crore, Ruturaj Gaikwad Rs 20 lakhs)
