CSK to release star players before next mega auction in 2021

BCCI is planning to hold a mega auction before the start of the IPL 2021 season in April-May. Sources claimed that a final decision for holding the mega auction will be taken by BCCI in December. Some reports claimed that the BCCI is also planning to include one more team in IPL 2021.  

Reports say that CSK is planning to release few names from their team ahead of the auction.Kedar Jadhav failed to perform both with the bat and ball and it is likely that the CSK would release him ahead of IPL 2021. Besides Jadhav, the CSK might also release their West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, who missed the majority of IPL 2020 due to injury. 

Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina decided to sit out of IPL 2020 and it is highly unlikely that their contracts will be renewed by CSK. Shane Watson who announced retirement will be out too.
