Auction preview, strengths and weaknesses of the team

Chennai Super Kings will not have to wrestle much on the auction table, as they already have the core team and they would like to bid on only a few players. If we talk about the strong side of the team, then it is batting, because batsmen like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, and MS Dhoni are known for scoring a lot of runs.

The team does not have that much strength in bowling, but Deepak Chahar and Tushar Deshpande can be successful. The weak point of the team at the moment is the middle order, as Ambati Rayudu is no longer in it.

Among the players that Chennai Super Kings is going to target in the auction, the first one will be Rachin Ravindra, because his arrival will give the team the balance that it needs. He plays at number three and can also bowl a few overs if needed.

They can also bet on Travis Head and Riley Rousseau, who can play as pure batters. In bowling, the team can bid on Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc. However, the team will also have to look at the budget.
