Cricket fans are eagerly waiting to know about the players going to be retained and released by CSK. And now after the completion of the T20 world cup, another player’s retention by CSK team management is almost certain.
Josh Hazlewood to be retained by CSK
Josh Hazlewood performed extremely well in the final of the T20 world cup 2021. He conceded 16 runs and took 3 wickets in his quota of 4 overs.
He was the reason Australia defeated New Zealand by 8 wickets and won the title for the 1st time.
Hazlewood is also a part of CSK for 2 years and his magnificent performance in the T20 world cup has ensured that he will be retained by Chennai Super Kings.
In IPL 2021, he took 11 wickets in 9 matches. Considering his fantastic form, he will be the 2nd most preferred player to be retained by CSK after Dhoni.
