CSK will definitely go for Ashwin in IPL auction - Dhoni

MS Dhoni has been reunited with the Chennai Super Kings for this year's Indian Premier League (IPL), and he believes the franchise should regain the services of India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin during the auction, which will be held on January 27 and 28 in Bangalore.

CSK's retention of their core group of players in their eight years of existence has taken much of the credit for their sustained success, and it is likely that other franchises will be wary of CSK trying to retain and snap up some of their old players.

He added, "We also have our former players Brendon McCullum, Faf du Plessis and Dwayne Bravo". "Being a proud sponsor of Chennai Super Kings, we are launching today a consumer offer scheme whereby with every purchase of Coromandel Super Power Cement, consumers get a chance to win the CSK merchandise range". All over wherever we have gone, CSK has got support. With Ashwin, you know we had done the same thing in the past. Dhoni said, "I want local players in the Chennai Super Kings". "I can't think of not coming back to CSK".

A level-headed coach who seems to know his players inside out, Fleming forged a hugely successful relationship with Dhoni, becoming one of the most successful coach-captain combinations in the tournament.

He further added, We have two right-to-match options but having already retained three capped Indians, don't think we can use it. He also expressed that the team management, their players as well as the fans conducted themselves amazingly during the two-year ban. We have to buy him in the auction. He said that CSK fans have adopted him and they have treated him like their own. There can't be any bigger compliment than that. "This is a special place and the thought of being with any other franchise was never a question", said Mahi at a promotional event here. You look at all the other players that we have got and then we can go for someone else because it gives the stability to the side. The last two years we were not there, our fan following got stronger because none of the players were involved in anything.

"I can say proudly that Chennai is my second home", said the CSK skipper.
