Chennai Super Kings have submitted a list of retained and released players ahead of the upcoming IPL 2023 auction which is slated to be held in Kochi on December 23.
The four-time IPL champions retained top players in their arsenal but at the same time, they had to release the underperforming players from their squad on the retention deadline day.
CSK released Robin Uthappa (retired), Bhagath Varma, KM Asif, Adam Milne, Chris Jordan, Narayan Jagadeesan and Hari Nishaanth from their squad. Moreover, they released the longest-serving player, Dwayne Bravo.
The former West Indies’ all-rounder chipped in with a decent performance in the fifteenth edition of the IPL, bagging 16 wickets to his name in 10 games but could muster just 23 runs to his name with the bat.
Narayan Jagadeesan scored 3 centuries in the last 3 games in Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022
Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batsman Narayan Jagadeesan has been making waves in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022 tournament where he let his bat do the talking in the last three games.
However, CSK released the cricketer from their set-up ahead of the auction. The yellow army purchased him for his base price of INR 2 lakh at the IPL 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru.
Nonetheless, he didn’t get enough opportunities to play for the franchise. He represented CSK in only two games wherein he scored 40 runs to his name. CSK decided to let go of the 26-year-old wicketkeeper batsman.
Now, he has made a tremendous impact with the bat, smashing three centuries in the last three games of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He scored an unbeaten 114* off 112 balls against Andhra Pradesh as he guided Tamil Nadu to a 9-wicket win.
Jagadeesan also scored 107 off 113 balls against Chattisgarh as Tamil Nadu won the game by 14 runs. He went on to score a third-consecutive century against Goa, scoring 168 off 140 balls.
CSK dropped him.. anyways good only https://t.co/VLNARZLeqFAdvertisement
