3. Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is the first team that can target Kane Williamson in IPL 2023 auction. Last year, CSK faced issues in the middle order after the absence of Suresh Raina. Chennai Super Kings also struggled to score big totals on the board and faced batting issues.
