Chennai Super Kings are all set to make a return to the cash-rich Indian Premier League after a two-year ban from the game. The Bleed Yellow is a sheer dominant force and would like to get into the scheme of things this time.
With a terrific history and a staggering fan base, they will be looking forward to announcing their arrival. Reports say that the franchises are allowed to retain three potential players. Let’s take a look at the three stalwarts CSK would like to retain in the upcoming edition of IPL 2018.
#1. MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni is the ultimate icon of Chennai Super Kings. He is one of the reasons that CSK got the much-needed spark to emit fire going one on one with the opposition. MS Dhoni remains a favourite of many. He embedded the fearless attitude in the team.
His super cool attitude in finishing off games with a measured approach did a world of good for the team in the first 8 seasons. Known for the knack of playing the trademark ‘helicopter’ shots with utmost perfection, his presence is an absolute essence to CSK.
He led the team to two IPL accolades, two Champions League titles in what was important to decorate the trophy cabinet. Also, CSK made it to four IPL finals. The CSK franchise has expressed interest in retaining the connoisseur MS Dhoni.
#2. Suresh Raina
A flamboyant southpaw whose high-flying shots from ball one is an ultimate asset to the team. The franchise would love to retain an elegant player like him. He is the leading run scorer in IPL. He is a livewire on the field and his impeccable consistency in wielding the blade makes him the attacking player.
#3. Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin is one of the important parts of CSK cricket history. He is known for his ability to bowl carrom balls only to outsmart the batsman in crucial situations of the game. He has taken 100 wickets to his illustrious IPL career. He is someone who can bolster the bowling department.
