Chennai Super Kings retained 18 players from their squad ahead of the auction for IPL 2021.

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are without a doubt, one of the most followed and adored franchises competing in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The side has been consistent throughout their time in the tournament. However, the aforesaid consistency was not evident in the 2020 edition of the tournament as the franchise missed out on the playoff spots for the first time ever in their history.

Now, with an eye on the auction for the 2021 edition which is set to take place on February 18, CSK have released six players to free up funds. Meanwhile, in the trade window, they’ve acquired the services of wicket-keeper batsman Robin Uthappa on an all-cash deal. They now have 19.8 crores left in their purse from which they’ll have to fill up the five remaining spots which includes an overseas one.
