IPL 2023: 3 Teams Who Can Target Phil Salt In The IPL Auction
1. Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
Chennai Super Kings, the 4-time IPL winners finished at the penultimate position in the IPL 2022 points table with four wins in 14 league matches in 2022. The team was inconsistent with their contributions in the batting department, despite the presence of experienced batters. They released Robin Uthappa ahead of the mini-auction, who played at the opening slot and the No.3 or No.4 position.
As the squad stands before IPL 2023, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway will continue to don the role of the opener. However, management dropped Devon Conway in a few of the matches last season due to his low scores. In this regard, Phil Salt can be a backup opener for CSK, in case the Kiwi batter Devon Conway fails to produce consistent performances.
