IPL 2023: 5 all-rounders CSK can target in trading window to replace Ravindra Jadeja
The trading window would be a great opportunity for CSK to fill the spot that will be vacated by Jadeja.
The rift between Ravindra Jadeja and Chennai Super Kings seemed to have grown in the past few months. This could result in the veteran all-rounder getting released or traded to the other team in the upcoming trading window which is reported to get open in November or December.
The trading window would be a great opportunity for the Chennai franchise to fill the spot that will be vacated by Jadeja. The Indian cricketer is among the best all-rounders in the game and has been a top finisher for the franchise. The spot will be tough to fill but there are certain players who could fit the bill. Let us look at some-
Quality all-rounders whom CSK could target to replace Ravindra Jadeja
1. Krunal Pandya
Lucknow Super Giants bought Krunal Pandya to provide balance to the side. The southpaw had a decent campaign with the ball taking 10 wickets at an economy of 8.25. However, the all-rounder failed to have an impact with the bat and could accumulate only 183 runs at a mediocre strike rate of 126.21.
Lucknow would have hoped more from him and this is where lies the opportunity for CSK. Krunal is a like-for-like replacement for Jadeja and can bowl in different phases of the game. A player-to-player trade can be on the cards between the southpaws.
LSG would be eager to rope in the veteran cricketer on their side who is a proven finisher. CSK on the other hand could fill the Jadeja void with a quality all-rounder like Krunal.
