3. Chennai Super Kings

This 30-year-old right-arm-medium-fast bowler was the highest wicket-taker of the team in the previous season. For CSK, he has been playing since 2018 and has taken 55 wickets for the team. The skipper of CSK loves to pack the team with all-rounders and Shardul is definitely a potential player.

2. Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings have now retained Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh. They have released their prime bowler Mohammed Shami and will look forward to an Indian seam option with batting abilities. The management has already attempted to purchase this player the last time he featured in the auction and gave up before the last few bids.

1. Mumbai Indians

Though he hasn’t played such big innings with the bat in the IPL, he would be groomed to do so along with the likes of Kieron Pollard. This Mumbai player has played plenty of matches at Wankhede and it is a very well-known condition for him. Considering all these factors, Shardul would be in the minds of MI.
