IPL 2022 Auction: 5 Players Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Can Target
CSK dearly missed a bowler who could fast and has the ability to bowl in both powerplay and the death overs. They tried Lungi Ngidi but he didn’t fare too well with the ball. Trent Boult has bowled exceedingly well for Mumbai Indians in the last two editions of the tournament. In his first season with the franchise, he picked the second most number of wickets for them.
Boult continued his great run in the India leg of the IPL 2021. Though, he lost his accuracy in the second leg of the tournament. Boult is currently one of the best fast bowlers in the world and CSK are likely to spend a hefty sum of money for the New Zealand pacer.
