The Indian T20 League 2023 is just weeks away as the tournament will kick off right after the conclusion of the Border-Gavaskar trophy against Australia slated on February 9. One of the teams that enjoyed a great day at the office during the mini-auction was the four-time champions Chennai team led by MS Dhoni.
For the unversed, the Chennai franchise had a dismal outing in 2022 and they would be hoping to turn things around, in what can be Dhoni’s last-ever Indian T20 League season. We decided to handpick three overseas players who could be vital for Chennai’s success and be game-changer in the upcoming series.
Here are the three overseas players who would be vital for Chennai’s success in the Indian T20 League 2023:
3) Maheesh Theekshana
Maheesh Theekshana enjoyed a great run at the Chennai camp last year and to his delight, the spinner from Sri Lanka was retained for the approaching season as well. Given that the matches shall take place at the Chepauk stadium this year, Theekshana would be pivotal for the team.
Known for its spin and turn, the Lankan Lions star would hope to hunt the batters and take them down, crowning the team at their home stadium once again. Theekshana’s spin and partnership-breaking ability might come in handy for the Dhoni-led team.
