Colin Munro is one of the most destructive batsmen in the shortest format of the game. The fact that he was not picked by any team in the auction might raise a few eyebrows. However, the Kiwi batting all-rounder might be useful for a team like CSK which is entering into a transition phase. His clean-striking ability can help the team to post a good powerplay score and if he plays till the fifteenth over, he can score a big hundred.

Munro’s T20 strike rate of 156.44 clearly shows that he is one of the biggest names in the international circuit, but with 13 IPL games in the last three years, he has been overlooked and ignored. Munro is the fourth player to produce multiple T20I hundreds and with the presence of Ruturaj at the other end, who is more of a calm head and takes his time to settle, Munro can be used to tear apart any bowling line-up.

With the departure of Watson, CSK can look to include Munro in their squad. Apart from batting, the Kiwi can bowl a couple of overs as well. Munro’s medium pace can be an asset as Dhoni could extract a couple of overs from him. T20 is all about options, and a variety of them will be available when Munro is included in any squad. The aggressive Kiwi batsman could be of great use for CSK. If given enough chances, he might become a part of their core too!
