3. Chris Jordan

CSK would like to make way for a better bowling all-rounder in place of the aging Chris Jordan in the next season too. As Jordan didn’t get even a single game ever since he was dropped, it shows the lack of trust of CSK management over Jordan. It would be interesting to see how Jordan performs on the international circuit, which will decide his fortunes for the 2023 IPL.

2. Tushar Deshpande

CSK would rather try to include a spinner or two in their lineup instead of an additional backup seamer. CSK might actually release Tushar Desphande as the seam and swing bowling departments both look secured with two backups.

1. Robin Uthappa

Robin started the 2022 season in some fashion, scoring two fifties in the first five games, but went downhill like a rolling balls as Robin had scores of 3, 30, 1, 1, 0 and 1 in the last five innings. Robin’s inclusion disturbing the balance of the side and most importantly age also not being on Uthappa’s side, CSK were left with no other option but to drop him from the first eleven and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they release the 36-year-old to make way for new faces in the squad next year.
