Chennai Super Kings have been the second-most successful franchise in the history of the Indian Premier League with four IPL triumphs against their name. However, CSK had an awful campaign in IPL 2022 and were nowhere close to the intimidating side of the old. Chennai franchise finished second-last with just four wins in 14 games and some key players were not able to perform as per the expectations.
Reportedly, there were rifts within the camp and that did not help either. The four-time IPL champions need to start their rebuilding act and the trading window would present a golden opportunity to do so. The team management could let go of certain players who do not fit in the scheme of things going forward. Let us look at players CSK will trade in the forthcoming trading window.
5 Players CSK might trade in the trading window:
5. Tushar Deshpande
Tushar Deshpande has been a consistent performer in the Indian domestic circuit. In 23 first-class matches, the 27-year-old has taken 57 wickets for Mumbai. He also showed his bowling might in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021-22 season where he bagged eight wickets in four games at an impressive economy of 7.00.
The Chennai franchise looked at Deshpande as an exciting prospect and picked him at the 2022 IPL Auction. With Deepak Chahar out injured, the Mumbai pacer got a few chances to show his skills with the ball but he was not able to make the best use of the opportunities.
Deshpande played two games for the Men in Yellow and managed to take a single wicket and conceded runs at an economy of 9.00. With Mukesh Choudhary's outstanding showing in this year’s IPL which saw him take 16 wickets in 13 games, CSK might not stick with Mumbai speedster for the further seasons and release him in the forthcoming trading window.
