Very own fans of Chennai Super Kings are not happy with the decision took by the franchise in the bid that took place on 19th of December. They bought leg spinner Piyush Chawla for a whopping price of 6.5 crores rupees. Many fans couldn’t find the reason behind the purchase as the team already has three spinners Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Karan Sharma along with batting allrounder Suresh Raina.
“We traded very hard (for Chawla) and certainly the captain has a great relationship with him. He’s proven that he’s a quality leg-spinner which we value very highly,” the CSK coach and former New Zealand player Stephen Fleming said.
“He’s a different type of bowler than Karn Sharma. We also had to make some decisions around how all fits in but it was an opportunity that came up and we took it. We have a pretty well-balanced squad. We’ve always favoured spin, our home ground is very spin dominant, so having a lot of spinners is not a bad thing.” he added.
However, fans not convinced and are making fun with the decision made by the team management. Meanwhile Chennai Super Kings posted a picture in its official Instagram account announcing that they bought Sai Kishore, a Tamilnadu based bowler. Check out their post below :

In his reply comment, “Chawla must have scrapped during previous year’s Bhogi itself. Why you bought him ? You will buy him easily but it is me who has to face three Mumbai Indians fans in our whatsapp group which consists only four of us. Answer me admin. Who is capable of selecting players ?? Me or those who involved in auction ?” he asked.

However, as we all know, the social media handles of the team has nothing to do with the decisions being taken by management.
