Injuries and Squad
Only one month before the IPL 2023 begins, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have suffered a significant setback as Kyle Jamieson of New Zealand is anticipated to be disqualified from the competition. One of CSK’s unexpected auction selections was Kyle Jamieson.
Kyle Jamieson, who was chosen by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during the IPL 2023 auction for Rs. 1 crore, is anticipated to miss at least three to four months of action after battling a back stress fracture. He will not participate in the upcoming IPL 2023.
Ben Stokes was purchased by Chennai Super Kings at the IPL 2023 Auction for Rs 16.25 Cr. They will now need to find guys who can perform in the playoffs, cause he will miss. The favorite to succeed MS Dhoni as the captain of CSK is Stokes, a significant player.
In case Dhoni decides to put up his boots at the conclusion of the season this year, CSK’s acquisition of Ben Stokes in the auction makes the Englishman a potential successor. Together with Punjab Kings, Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Royal Challengers Bangalore, CSK is a member of Group B.
CSK IPL 2023 Squad
MS Dhoni (c), Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, Subhranshu Senapati, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Dwaine Pretorius, Mitchell Santner, Ravindra Jadeja, Tushar Deshpande, Mukesh Chowdhary, Matheesha Pathirana, Simarjeet Singh, Deepak Chahar, Prashant Solanki, Maheesh Theekshana, Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sindhu, Kyle Jamieson, Ajay Mandal, Bhagath Varma.
Matches and Fixture
Similar to last season, the clubs have been split into two groups. Super Kings, Royal Challengers, Titans, Kings, and Sunrisers are in Group B, while Mumbai, Knight Riders, Royals, Capitals, and Super Giants are in Group A. There will be 14 league games total, with each team playing the five teams from the opposing group twice and the other four teams from their own group once. This is a change from last season.
Over the league phase, there will be 18 doubleheaders, played every Saturday and Sunday. Mumbai and Super Kings, the two most successful teams in IPL history, will face off against each other twice, on April 8 and May 6, with the latter game marking the 1000th IPL game since the league’s debut in 2008. Super Kings, meanwhile, would relocate back to Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, also known as Chepauk.
The IPL 2019 season was the league’s final appearance in all of India’s traditional stadiums. Because to the Covid-19 epidemic, the event had to be transferred to the UAE and changed from its original March-May window to September-November in 2020.
Gujarat Titans, headed by Hardik Pandya, won the IPL championship in 2022 after defeating Rajasthan Royals in the championship game. In addition to the ten home grounds, games will also be played in Dharamsala and Guwahati in 2023, making a total of 12 locations available for IPL matches.
For CSK, it is now crucial to have a bowler who can perform well in the closing stages. It can also make sense to pair a solid medium-pace all-around bowler with a capable lower middle-order batsman.
These factors will be taken into consideration by the management when deciding on Jamieson’s replacement for the IPL in 2023.
Chennai Super Kings, who last won the competition in 2021, are currently vying for their fifth championship. They had a miserable 2022, finishing ninth out of ten teams with just four victories in fourteen games.
MS Dhoni’s Last Season
The Chennai Super Kings’ MS Dhoni is ready to take part in the 2023 IPL season. After quitting international cricket in 2020, the former India skipper will also bid farewell to the IPL.
A representative of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) stated that Dhoni would step down as captain following the IPL 2023. ” In fact, MS will retire after this season. We now understand this. Nevertheless, it is his choice”. Executive for CSK added.
The IPL 2023 schedule was made public by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday, February 17. The four-time champion CSK will once again be able to play in Chepauk thanks to the IPL’s return to home-and-away matches this season.
If CSK doesn’t make the playoffs, his final home game will be against Kolkata Knight Riders on May 14 at the Chepauk Stadium.
A “clash of Titans” between Dhoni’s CSK and Royal Challengers Bangalore is scheduled for April 17 in Bengaluru.
