4-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings have already started their planning for mega auctions which is reportedly set to take place in February 2022. Having retained Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad, the franchise have already got their sights on a young uncapped player they might look to sign during the auctions.

In a recent development, it has been revealed that CSK have called up Odisha’s batter Subhranshu Senapati post his brilliant performances in the domestic circuit this year. The stylish right-handed batsman smashed 275 runs in 7 matches in Vijay Hazare Trophy to emerge as the highest run-scorer for his side.

Subhranshu is one of the most talented young batters in domestic circuit

Apart from his heroics in the 50-over format, the 24-year-old has also been quite impressive in the shortest format of the game. During this year’s Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he smashed 138 runs in 5 matches. Since his debut in 2017, he has played 26 T20s where he has scored 637 runs at an average of 28.95, which includes 3 half-centuries to his name.

Subhranshu’s state side Odisha confirmed the news through a tweet on Saturday. They also shared footage of youngsters’ batting which gives a fair reflection of the incredible talent that the batsman possesses.

CSK have a history of investing in uncapped players

MS Dhoni-led franchise is one of the most successful sides in the Indian Premier League and they have a history of investing in young uncapped players. Many uncapped players like Ravichandran Ashwin, Murali Vijay, Mohit Sharma etc. who have played for CSK in past, later went on to play for the national side.

Having received such a golden opportunity, Subhranshu Senapati would be very keen to make the most out of the chance and leave a lasting impression during his trials, so that he can be picked by the franchise during the upcoming mega auctions, which would certainly open the doors for some great things in youngster’s cricket career.
