Chennai Super Kings have decided to release five players ahead of the proposed IPL auction in Kolkata. The franchise have been told to submit the list of released players on November 14 and the two-time IPL champions has taken a call to part ways with Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Murali Vijay, Karn Sharma and Shardul Thakur.
Rayudu, who recently took back his retirement, played a key role in Chennai Super King’ title victory in 2018 but his patchy form in the last season proved to be fatal for him.
Kedar was also out of touch in the last edition and Murali Vijay was hardly used. Sharduk Thakur was expensive in his spells and Imran Tahir was preferred over Karn Sharma.
The Chennai based franchise had shelled out Rs 5 crore and Rs 2 crore for Karn Sharma and Shardul Thakur respectively.
