Will Jagadeesan don the PBKS jersey in the upcoming auction?

With Mayank absent, the Punjab franchise needs top quality batter and hence PBKS could consider Jagadeesan for the role. Typically, the Tamil Nadu batsman, an opener, has shown his ability to bat in the middle order as well. So if Punjab opts to open with Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow, the 26-year-old could push the order down. With Jagadeesan offering such flexibility, the Punjab side could use a hammer and tongs to select him at the upcoming auction.

KKR wants a wicketkeeper batter in the auction

  • Kolkata Knight Riders had a terrible campaign in IPL 2022 where they managed to win only six of their 14 games and finished in seventh place.
  • The two-time champions played Sheldon Jackson as their keeping option in the season’s opening games.
  • Jackson played five games in the 2022 season and had just 23 runs with an 88.46 batting average.
  • After Jackson’s poor plays, KKR tried Baba Indrajith, but he too struggled to get going, hitting just 21 runs in three games.
  • The Kolkata franchise has released a total of 16 players ahead of next season, including both Jackson and Indrajith.
  • Of note, KKR doesn’t have any Indian goalies on the team and the two-time IPL champions would certainly be fishing for some good wicketkeeper batters at the IPL 2023 player auction.
  • As a result, Jagadeesan will be a number priority for the men in purple and gold in the upcoming auction.

Will CSK reinvest in Jagadeesan? With Uthappa announcing his retirement from all forms of Indian cricket, CSK will have a big hole in their top order and team management will be looking for a solid Indian batter in the upcoming IPL auction. The Chennai franchise might even consider reinvesting in Jagadeesan to bolster their batting lineup. The Chennai franchise released Tamil Nadu as he failed to make a mark with his performances in the 2022 season. But with Jagadeesan in impeccable contact, it wouldn’t be a surprise if CSK bid for him at the auction.
