Chennai Super Kings (CSK) performance was up to the mark in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. A lot of credit goes to the franchise for bouncing back in a grand fashion despite spending two years on the sidelines.
The yellow brigade went on to win their third IPL title. Consequently, they are now tied with Mumbai Indians (MI) for the most number of IPL trophies.
However, some players’ performances were not up to the mark. Thus they can be shown the exit door from the CSK camp.
Meanwhile, Mahendra Singh Dhoni will not like to fickle with the winning combination of the team. The core of the team is expected to remain same but there can be minor changes.
In addition, most of the players we are going to select received limited opportunities.
However, IPL is a platform in which you have to grab your chances with both hands. Thus, we have noticed that if a player fails to perform in one match, he has to warm the benches in the following matches and that proved to be a norm.
Let’s take a look at the five Chennai Super Kings’ players who could be axed in next season.
KM Asif is one of the bowlers who can be released by the Super Kings think tank. As the fast bowler performance was not up to the mark, he can be shown an exit door before the kick off of next edition.
However, Asif didn’t get many chances in the recently-concluded season of the IPL. The right-handed fast bowler only played two matches for the Men in Yellow.
Asif turned out to be expensive in the limited opportunities. The speedster bagged three wickets in the two matches he played. However, he conceded his runs at a higher economy of 12.5.
