‘We are not looking at any player’, says CSK CEO ahead of mid-season transfer

In a recent interview with ANI, Chennai Super Kings’ CEO, Kasi Viswanathan has clearly stated that the team isn’t looking to trade any player in the mid-season transfer window of IPL 2020. He went on to say that they are not even aware of all the rules and regulation that will be put into place during the transfer window.

“CSK have never bought or released players in the mid-season transfer window and we have honestly not even gone through the rules and regulations that come into play if we are looking at a transfer. We are not looking at any player.” said Kasi Viswanathan

The CSK CEO feels that no team would be interested to loan any player during the transfer window as the players are selectors on the basis of different situations which might arise during the course of the league.

“It is a competition after all and I don’t think anyone would want to loan players to another franchise. Some might be playing and others might not, but all players are picked at the auction with numerous plans in mind and for different situations that might arise during the course of the tournament. You do not go in with just Plan A. You have an A, B, C and D.” Kasi Viswanathan added

There have been speculations that CSK might let go, Imran Tahir, as the South African spinner hasn’t played any match thus far in the competition.  However, Viswanathan has said that Tahir will come be included in the playing XI as the going ahead in the tournament.

“He will definitely come into the picture as we go ahead. Right now, with the conditions on offer, the team composition has been planned with two foreigners at the top as pure batsmen and then two pace bowling all-rounders. But, he [Tahir] will come in with the wickets starting to take turn in the second half.” said CSK CEO
