Will Sarfaraz Khan Play For CSK in IPL 2024? Which Other IPL Team Want To Take Sarfaraz Khan in Their Team?

Another good news for Sarfaraz Khan, who just make his debut in test cricket. Even though no team bought him in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 auction, it looks like Chennai Super Kings might sign him on. This could happen because Shivam Dube, another player for Chennai Super Kings, got injured during a Ranji Trophy match and needs eight weeks to recover. So, Sarfaraz Khan might join the team as a replacement for the injured player.

Three IPL Team Want To Take Sarfaraz Khan in Their Team

After a promising debut in Rajkot, a report from Anandabazar Patrika reveals that three IPL teams are interested in signing Sarfaraz Khan. Despite going unsold at a base price of INR 20 lakhs in December, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are considering him following advice from mentor Gautam Gambhir. The suggestion is to strengthen their batting lineup, which already includes players like Rinku Singh, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer, Jason Roy, and Andre Russell.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are also in the mix, with Dhoni reportedly giving the go-ahead to sign the 27-year-old Sarfaraz. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is the third team in the race, and Sarfaraz has previously played for them in IPL seasons from 2015 to 2018. However, he didn’t get many opportunities in the XI, which included AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, and Virat Kohli.

Will Sarfaraz Khan Play For CSK?

Sarfaraz Khan, a talented batsman who didn’t get any buyers in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 auction, is likely to join the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as a replacement for the injured all-rounder Shivam Dube. Dube got hurt during a Ranji Trophy match and needs eight weeks to recover.

Reports suggest that CSK, not wanting to wait for Dube’s return, have informed their captain, MS Dhoni. According to a CSK fan page, Dhoni has given the thumbs up to bring in the dynamic hitter, Sarfaraz Khan, who has been in excellent form recently.

Sarfaraz Khan Performance in IPL 

Even though Sarfaraz has done well in Test cricket, he has faced challenges in making a mark in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He played for teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, and Delhi Capitals but couldn’t secure a consistent spot due to fitness issues and not performing well with the bat.

His time with Delhi Capitals ended early because he didn’t meet performance expectations, and his struggle against bouncers and short deliveries was one of the reasons for his release from the team.

Sarfaraz Khan Current Form And Performance

Sarfaraz Khan, who recently played his first Test match for India, performed exceptionally well. He scored more than 50 runs in both innings while playing aggressively. As a result, despite not being picked in the IPL auction earlier, three IPL teams are now interested in buying Sarfaraz due to his impressive performance in the Test match.
