New Delhi. In IPL 2023, the Indian team’s senior batsman Ajinkya Rahane will be seen in the Chennai Super Kings camp. CSK has added the former vice-captain of the Indian Test team to the team for a base price of Rs 50 lakh. It is not yet clear whether Mahendra Singh Dhoni will give him a chance in the playing XI or not. Meanwhile, Rahane has expressed his desire that he wants to open for CSK. Chennai Super Kings have to play the opening match against Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
During a media interaction with Ajinkya Rahane a day before the match, he was asked about his role in the presence of established opening batsmen like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway. To this he said, “I have always been an opening batsman. I have always opened the innings in T20 format, so there is not much difference in my role. Still, I am always ready to do whatever the team management and captain ask me to do. For me, it is always about the CSK team, so I will give my best whenever I get a chance.
Whenever there was a chance, the bat showed a storm, did not get a chance in Team India, now there will be havoc in IPL!
Captain’s charioteer became in trouble, took command of IPL team in only 1 match, 2 won, 2 Indians also in the list
Rahane said that he is in good rhythm with the bat. He has scored 634 runs in 7 Ranji matches for Mumbai. “I’m batting really well, I’ve had a good domestic season. Whenever I get a chance in the team, I would like to give my best.
Ajinkya Rahane said, “My experience of playing with Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been good so far. We started our practice session much earlier. Very happy to be a part of CSK family. Playing under Mahi bhai’s leadership again… It’s a great learning opportunity for me, having played under him for many years in the Indian team. But this is the first time to play under his guidance in CSK.
