2 – Narayan Jagadeesan
The Tamil Nadu batter is currently the hottest property in domestic cricket. Courtesy of the presence of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway, Chennai Super Kings released Narayan Jagadeesan ahead of the Indian Premier League 2023.
After letting Mayank Agarwal go, Punjab Kings need a quality Indian opener so that they can accommodate an overseas pacer to help Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh. There is no better option available than Narayan Jagadeesan as the right-handed batter is in red-hot form at the moment.
Narayan Jagadeesan amassed 830 runs in 8 matches during the Vijay Hazare Trophy at an average of 138.33 and a strike rate of 125.37. His superhuman effort also included five consecutive centuries and the record-breaking knock of 277 runs. The batter won’t come cheap as many franchises will try to sign him but Punjab Kings have the financial muscle to flex to sign him.
