Chennai Super Kings have retained Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad ahead of mega auction for IPL 2022. Faf du Plessis, who scored more than 600 runs in the last edition, was not included in the retention list.
The former South Africa skipper has been the biggest match winner for the team in the last few seasons, and his knock against Kolkata Knight Riders in the finale of IPL 2021, played a key role in CSK’s fourth title triumph.
The defending champions will target Faf in the auctions. CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan has spoken about getting Du Plessis back.
“We look forward to getting them back. For example, Faf has been a team man who has taken us to the finals of two important seasons. It will be our endeavor to go and try for him.”
