IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Players Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Can Target. Chennai Super Kings had a dismal outing in  IPL 2022, finishing in the ninth position in the points table. The MS Dhoni-led side finished with four wins and as many as 10 losses and ended with Mumbai Indians in terms of points.

MSD confirmed his availability in IPL 2023 much to the happiness of the Indian and the IPL fans in general. The skipper has a crucial rebuilding phase to do with his side. He has to seek players who can be the pillar of the side in times to come in the future.

With the dates for IPL 2023 auction closing in, the franchises can release the players who they think can be released in order to strengthen their side even more by buying other players both Indian and overseas.

With potentially all franchises releasing a few players, CSK has the opportunity to add a few players from the other franchises now to their side. In this article, we take a look at three RCB players whom CSK can target in IPL 2023.

Wanindu Hasaranga, the Sri-Lankan player, was brought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for 10.75 crores in IPL 2022 mega auction. The star cricketer from the Island nation has grabbed the opportunity with both hands. In 14 matches, he has scalped 24 wickets and is the current purple cap holder in IPL 2022. He is currently also the leading wicket-taker in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 and tops the list with 13 wickets this far.

CSK, on the other hand, has been missing a quality spinner since the time Imran Tahr, Harbhajan Singh, and Piyush Chawla left the side. In this scenario, Wanindu Hasaranga seems to be the best bet.

Karthik can be another option for CSK for any RCB player they can target. He brought out his best finishing skills in IPL 2022 which saw him making a comeback into the Indian squad. He still has a few years of cricket left in him and CSK can invest in him at least for two to three more years. He will be the perfect player to take over the finisher’s role from MSD.

Harshal Patel

In an ideal scenario, RCB would not release Harshal Patel from their squad. He ended with 33 wickets in IPL 2021 and the franchise bought him back for 10.75 crores and ended with 19 wickets this season. Harshal will be an ideal bowler in the death with the CSK franchise looking to move over Dwayne Bravo.
