Dhruv Shorey could not make the best first impression in the IPL. The right-handed batsman played only one match in this season.

The 25-year-old Shorey, who plays for Delhi in domestic circuit scored only eight runs on his IPL debut.

It was a perfect opportunity for the young batsman to make a place for himself in a potent team like CSK.

However, Shorey could not get going in his solitary chance. Thus, he can be released by the franchise.

However, the right-handed batter will hope to do better in the next season provided he is kept by the franchise.

Vijay played a solitary match in this season.

Murali Vijay didn’t receive a plethora of chances as the role of openers was well justified by Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson early on. Thus, the flamboyant batsman got one chance to play in this season against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).

Vijay, who is a perfect timer of the ball could manage 12 runs in his only outing in the IPL 2018. Thus, Vijay who is 34, can be shown the exit door from the CSK team.

However, CSK and MS Dhoni himself will not like to ignore the experience of the stylish Indian batsman.

Mark Wood played in the IPL for the first time. However, he also failed to leave an early impact with the ball for the Super Kings.

The England fast bowler leaked 49 runs in his debut IPL match which turned out to be his last of the season.

Unfortunately, Wood could not make the cut into the playing XI after his dismal performance.

However, after one month of the tournament, Wood went back to England to play for his County side Durham.
