IPL 2024: 3 players who can replace Moeen Ali in CSK XI for remaining games

Moeen Ali scored 128 runs including a fifty for CSK in 8 appearances in IPL 2024.

Moeen Ali has left the Chennai Super Kings’ camp in order to prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The all-rounder who will not be featuring in IPL 2024 playoffs has been named in England’s squad for the four-match T20I series against Pakistan, starting on May 22.

The 36-year-old experienced campaigner has played 8 matches for CSK this season. Overall, he has amassed 128 runs including a fifty and maintained a strike rate of 130.61. On the contrary, he has accounted for two dismissals at an economy of 8.88.

The England international’s departure leaves a void in CSK’s squad. The yellow army’s think-tank will have to make sure that they keep their team combination intact without tweaking much in their playing XI in the first place.

CSK are third on the IPL 2024 points table with 14 points in 13 games (7 wins and 6 defeats). In this article, we will now take a glimpse at the three players who can replace Moeen Ali in CSK’s squad for the remaining games.

Ajinkya Rahane surprised the cricket fraternity by opting for the aggressor’s role in IPL 2023. He maintained a strike rate of 172.49 last season, which is his highest-ever conversion rate in his IPL career. Nevertheless, his batting form took a hit this season.

With the league stage nearly coming to an end, Ajinkya Rahane might want to rediscover his mojo. He scored 209 runs in 12 games at an average of 19 and a strike rate of 120.11 with no fifty. Despite the setback, Rahane might as well make a turnaround given his experience.
