2. Shahrukh Khan
There is a lot of noise in Tamil Nadu cricket around Shahrukh Khan. The right-handed batsman has been around Tamil Nadu’s white-ball squads for a while now. He has done well over the last couple of years as well.
In the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL), Shahrukh has been one of his team’s (Lyca Kovai Kings) premier batsmen. He is scoring runs consistently and his strike-rate is good too. Moreover, the 24-year-old has been a revelation in the Vijay Hazare Trophy for his state this year.
Thus, Shahrukh’s inclusion could help CSK boast their finisher’s department. It will also take some pressure off MS Dhoni who can afford to bat higher up the order as well. Moreover, Shahrukh will understand the nature of the pitches at Chepauk better as well.
