Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan has confirmed that the team tried to look for replacements for Ambati Rayudu in the trading window. Rayudu retired from the IPL following CSK’s title-winning campaign in 2023.

Rayudu started his IPL career in 2010 with Mumbai Indians, and won his first title in 2013. He won two more titles in 2015 and 2017 before moving to CSK in 2018, where he won the title in his debut season with the franchise. The 37-year-old went on to win two more titles with CSK in 2021 and 2023.

Speaking in a video released by CSK, Viswanathan confirmed that CSK were actively looking for replacements for Rayudu. The IPL 2024 trading

window remains open till December 12, a week prior to the mini-auctions.

“We have done only one trade in the last 15 years. That is for Robin Uthappa. We did look out for some players as replacement for Ambati Rayudu, but we could not get it. A slot has to be filled. We will look to fill up that slot with some youngster if we are not able to get an experienced player,” said Vishwanathan.

He went on to say that ther have been some interesting players released ahead of the mini-auction, insisting that the addition of Australian players would make it an interesting auction. The IPL 2023 mini-auction is most likely to be held on December 19 in Dubai.
