All eyes are on the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp ahead of the retention deadline for the IPL franchises. CSK surprised one and all with their brilliant performance in IPL 2021 and lifted the trophy when very few people gave them a chance before the start of the season.
But, now, when the deadline for retentions has finally arrived, fans and cricket pundits across the world are wondering who will be the four players that CSK will retain before the mega IPL 2022 auctions.
In this post, we will have a look at 4 names that Chennai Super Kings should retain.
1) MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni is like fine wine-he just keeps getting better. There is no doubt in our minds that he will be the first name on CSK’s retention list. He is their leader, he is their mentor and the management has put all their weight behind him.
2) Ravindra Jadeja
Ravindra Jadeja is one of the best all-rounders in the world and he has worked extremely hard on his batting, especially finishing skills, in the past few years. We are very confident that Chennai Super Kings will retain him and give him a bigger responsibility this season.
3) Ruturaj Gaikwad
The young opener was the Orange Cap holder in the last season of IPL. His skills, composure and maturity impressed one and all, throughout the season. Many fans and pundits are hopeful that Chennai Super Kings will retain him and give him a very long rope in the franchise.
4) Deepak Chahar
It would be a tough call between Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur, but we have a strong feeling that Chennai Super Kings will retain Chahar ahead of Thakur. Chahar has more variations up his sleeves and Dhoni likes giving him the new ball and let him have a go at opposition openers with the new, swinging ball.
