IPL 2023 Chennai Super Kings: For IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings opened their coffers to buy players in the mini auction. CSK has added Ben Stokes as the most expensive player in the mini auction. CSK has bought Ben Stokes for Rs 16 crore 25 lakh. In the mini auction, CSK has completed the squad of 25 players by buying seven players. But after the mini auction, the problems of captain MS Dhoni seem to be increasing.
Ajinkya Rahane’s name is also included in the list of seven players that CSK has bought for IPL 2023. Captain MS Dhoni’s problems may increase after Ajinkya Rahane comes to CSK. Ajinkya Rahane has good experience in IPL. But at what number MS Dhoni will make Rahane bat, this is a big question. We are also saying this because CSK already has an opening pair in the form of Rituraj Gaikwad and Devon Conway.
In IPL 2022, CSK used Rituraj Gaikwad and Devon Conway as openers. It is expected that in IPL 2023 also, CSK will open the batting with these two players only. In this situation, Ajinkya Rahane’s leaf will be cut as an opener. Ajinkya Rahane can be as the third opener of CSK. When one of these Gaikwad and Conway players will be out of the team due to injury.

Let us tell you that if needed, Ajinkya Rahane can also bat in the middle order. But only then he will get a chance in the middle order. When a player gets injured and leaves the team. Looking at the current squad of CSK, it can be guessed that Moin Ali at number three, Ambati Rayudu at number four, Captain MS Dhoni at number five and Ben Stokes at number six can be the batting order. Where Ajinkya Rahane does not seem to be getting a chance. CSK has bought Ajinkya Rahane in the mini auction for Rs 50 lakh. Now the biggest question is that at what number will captain MS Dhoni bat Rahane in the team.
