Chennai Super Kings have been one of the most consistent teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Under the leadership of the enigmatic Mahendra Singh Dhoni, they have made the tournament their own and have rolled over oppositions with disdain.
However, following the team management’s involvement in betting and other unwanted scandals, their dream run was halted and they were consequently handed a two-year termination along with the Rajasthan Royals. After serving the ban CSK will be itching to turn their fortunes around and make a strong comeback.
They’ve retained the core of the team from the very first season and is one of those teams that has the widest loyal follower base as the players enjoy unbelievable status from the fans in Chennai. In our article, we take a look at five cricketers Chennai Super Kings are highly likely to retain.
5. Andrew Tye
Andrew Tye, at the age of 26, made an entry into international cricket. However, ever since, he turned himself into an effective cricketer, especially in the T20 format. The fast bowler has also made a mark in the prestigious Indian Premier League.
He was initially picked up by the Chennai in 2015 for a base price of 5 million rupees. However, in the star-studded franchise, he couldn’t quite get an opportunity. In 2016, he was bagged by the Gujarat Lions once again on his base price.
He debuted for the Lions in 2017 and made an immediate impact churning out a hat-trick against the Rising Pune Supergiant. Considering his abilities with the ball, the two-time IPL champion team should retain him.
