2. Bhagath Varma

Kanumuri Bhagath Varma was initially bought by CSK in the IPL 2022 auction. However, he could not represent the franchise in any of the games. Afterwards, he was released from the team’s roster ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.

Nevertheless, the Chennai-based franchise bought back Bhagath for his base price of 20 Lakhs in the auction. Interestingly, the 24-year-old made his T20 debut for Hyderabad in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2022.

In five T20 games, Bhagath bagged two wickets at an average of 32, with an efficient economy of 5.81. His not so great performances in the domestic circuit and competition in the side for a spin all-rounder might rule him out of representing CSK yet again in 2023.
