Going into the auction, CSK needed two off-spinning all-rounders, one international and one domestic and Kasi said both the boxes were ticked.
With veteran Harbhajan Singh being released by the franchise, CSK was without an off-spinner.
He said, “Glenn Maxwell’s name came first. We went up to Rs 14 crore for him. But then we stopped because we needed money for a domestic off-spinning all-rounder.”
Then Moeen Ali’s name came up and after a hectic round of bidding CSK bought the English all-rounder for Rs.7 crore.
“We had only one overseas slot and Moeen fitted our requirements. He is a good striker of the ball and is flexible with his batting order. And then he is a capable off-spinner,” said Kasi.
The CSK CEO said he always knew Krishnappa Gowtham was going to be an expensive buy. “Our captain M.S. Dhoni had given us the names of Gowtham [first] and Jalaj Saxena as domestic off-spinners. Gowtham’s name came first. We went all out for him because we needed such a cricketer.”
Kasi added, “Yes, we paid Rs 9.25 crore for Gowtham. But now we have the flexibility of having one international and one domestic off-spinning all-rounder. We could play either one of them according to the team’s requirement.”
