5 Players that CSK can go for in the IPL 2020 Auction | How could the CSK squad look like for IPL 2020 season?

This article is part of an IPL Auction series, where we explore each team. Also check out the players KKR, SRH, RCB and RR could look at buying!

Before the Auction of the IPL’s 13th edition in December 2019, Chennai Super Kings released five players, in the process retaining the most players out of any team (20).

But with a purse of Rs.14.60 Cr and five slots to be filled, including two overseas players and a few issues to be fixed, here are some players they can go for this auction.

5. Jaydev Unadkat

Jaydev Unadkat’s rise was with Rising Pune Supergiant team under MS Dhoni. He took wickets for fun and even had a hat-trick that year. Following that season, he was one the biggest buys and CSK tried their best to have him in their side. But, Rajasthan won the battle on the auction table.

With Unadkat released by Rajasthan this year, he could be a perfect replacement for Mohit Sharma and his variations.

Jaydev Unadkat could thrive under the leadership of MS Dhoni.

4. Eoin Morgan

CSK needs someone who can play with intent in the middle order and go bonkers in the death overs. With MS Dhoni and the World Cup winning skipper from England in the same team, CSK could look at some hefty totals. Although he is very underrated in IPL, Morgan has the ability to play and attack spin well, meaning he can be very valuable for CSK.

3. Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell can bat explosively at any position and can be the perfect partner for MSD in the death overs. He can also give them a few very handy overs on the slow Chepauk wicket. This is before mentioning the type of fielder he is. CSK would surely want him if he is available at a good price.

2. James Neesham

Apart from a few shaky death overs, the form of the Kiwi All-rounder has been just going up since the World Cup. His ability to really tonk the ball and bowl in the death overs at his best is what Chennai needs. With the likes of DJ Bravo and Lungi Ngidi, CSK would have a great bowling attack along with Deepak Chahar and the spinners if they can add Neesham.

It has been an eventful 2019 for Jimmy Neesham

1. Chris Jordan

One of the major problems CSK has had for a few seasons now is their death bowling. They have tried many options, but need a specialist who can control the runs as well as take wickets in the slog overs.

With the tricks of Dwayne Bravo now known to everyone, Chris Jordan would be a great choice to accompany him in the death overs. His performance for the English team has been phenomenal and he can also hit the ball well, to go with his amazing fielding. He can be an ideal pick for CSK looking at their squad and previous year performances.

Chris Jordan was superb for England in New Zealand recently

So, what do you think? Are there any other players you’d like to see CSK go for in the IPL 2020 Auction?
