The Indian Premier League is arguably the toughest cricket league in the world and getting a chance to feature in the league is a feat in itself. Performances in IPL is the key to retain your spot in the side. With IPL scheduled to take place in four months’ time, and a mega auction before that – franchises will look to chop and change and in the process, some players may get left out.

Piyush Chawla: The veteran leggie is past his prime and fitness is also a concern with him. In 2020, he did not get to feature in a lot of CSK games. In seven matches, he picked up six wickets and went at an economy at 9.09. If the veteran is back at the auction table, it is highly unlikely any franchise would be interested in getting his services.

Kedar Jadhav: Another CSK player who did not live up to his potential. Jadhav scored 62 runs in eight matches and had a forgettable IPL. He could go unsold at the auction because with Jadhav fitness is also a concern and franchises will look at that aspect very seriously when they pick a team.

Umesh Yadav: He did not get a lot of chances as he featured in only two games in the season gone by. He did not pick up a single wicket and he may go unsold if he is back at the auction table. The problem with Umesh is that his economy is on the higher side and that may work against him.
