IPL 2023: There are only a few days left for the 16th season of the Indian Premier League to begin. At the same time, this IPL 2023 is going to be very important for Chennai Super Kings. Actually, it is being said that this season of IPL is going to be the last season of CSK captain MS Dhoni. After this, he will say goodbye to cricket completely, due to which this season is special for his fans and CSK. However, the last season was abysmal for the team, the 4-time champions were knocked out at the opening stage last year. But this time under the captaincy of Dhoni, the team would like to erase the bitter memories of last year. Stay tuned to hindi.insidesport.sn for all the latest cricket news.
In fact, this time Chennai Super Kings had included 7 players in their team by placing bets on 7 players in the mini-auction. At the same time, the franchise had retained 18 players. Along with this, CSK has included England all-rounder Ben Stokes in their team as the third most expensive player for Rs 16.25 crore. But there is suspense over Stokes playing in IPL 2023.
Suspense on the play of Ben Stokes
Let us tell you that for IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings included a total of 25 players in their team. Meanwhile, it was also being said that Ben Stokes could be chosen as Dhoni’s successor. Along with this, Ben Stokes was also considered to be the strength of the team but the injury of the England captain has spoiled the intentions of CSK. While Ben Stokes can prove to be the strength of the team, there is still suspense over his playing at the moment.
Strength of CSK
Ben Stokes was injured during the second Test against New Zealand. Because of which nothing can be said completely about his playing. At the same time, apart from Stokes, the spinners of the team can strengthen the team. At the same time, the team has great batsmen like Rituraj Gaikwad, Ambati Radu apart from captain MS Dhoni and Dwayne Conway. So many superstar all-rounders like Ravindra Jadeja, Moin Ali will also work to strengthen the team.
However, the pace bowling and the middle order are key concerns for the Dhoni-led side. Which shows the weakness of the team. Where the team has Deepak Chahar as a fast bowler and Moin Ali and Ambati Rayudu for middle order batting. But there is no such batsman in the team who can withstand the bowling of the opposition team in the middle order. On the other hand, if Stokes is out of the league, then the team has three players like Dasun Shanaka, James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell as his replacement.
