Speculations are now rife over who should bid for whom. Fans are expressing their desire on social media, but here are the players India.com believes Chennai Super Kings will target at the auction. IPL 2022: The tournament will be held behind closed doors in Mumbai.
Shahrukh Khan is a perfect T20 cricketer, born in Tamil Nadu. It is rare to find a right-hander that can go for it from the very first pitch. Khan could provide more stability to the middle order after the additions of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja.
CSK will try to fill Ruturaj Gaikwad’s partner’s void at the auction, which is something they are looking for at the top of the list. The Old Warhorse Faf du Plessis would be brought back. Whenever he returns, the successful opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf will reunite, and that should settle things at the top. According to Faf, he still has a lot of cricket left in him.
Bravo is an all-arounder from the West Indies who is a shining star for the yellow jersey and has a close bond with the captain. As he nears the end of his career, CSK could once again offer him a contract.
