Recently, veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin made a suggestion on a possible 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) contender for the No. 4 spot on the Chennai Super Kings.

Karun Nair may start in lieu of Ambati Rayudu in the starting lineup, according to Ravichandran Ashwin.

For CSK, Rayudu was essential to their successful 2018 comeback campaign. After the franchise won their fifth IPL championship in 2023, Rayudu declared his retirement from all Indian cricket competitions.

It will be up to the team to select his replacement at the next auction.

In a video posted on his YouTube account, Ravichandran Ashwin made the claim that CSK has a history of favouring well-known players over up-and-coming talent.

Shahrukh Khan would not be the best choice for the No. 4 spot, Ashwin said.

“I think they’re going to give it to Karun Nair.” They are trying to find someone to take Ambati Rayudu’s place.

He cannot be replaced at number four by Shahrukh. This season, I don’t know who they’ll put in that role, said Ashwin.

“They might attempt a left-hand option, but CSK has never invested in an unproven product when you look at their history.

They have never taken on a player who just excelled in their Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy debut season. So, everyone, be ready to see Karun Nair in yellow. I am merely putting on a small Ravi Shastri imitation; I am not committing to anything.

Karun Nair demonstrated his skill at playing spin, especially sweeping moves, with a demonstration from Ravichandran Ashwin. Nair might also be a great asset for Sunrisers Hyderabad, according to Ashwin.

He is a skilled spin player with the ability to sweep and reverse sweep. Particularly in Chennai, MS Dhoni adores having a batsman who can bat between the top order and the middle order at the No. 4 spot.

Karun Nair seems ideal for it, in my opinion. Karun Nair, you may recall, scored a triple hundred in a Test match held in Chennai, but I haven’t really seen Manish Pandey use spin much there,” Ashwin continued.

He might also go to SRH; since there will undoubtedly be competition, he could get a good deal there. Recently, he has also performed well in county cricket.

The past few years have not been easy for him. It’s not easy when you suddenly find yourself nowhere in Test cricket after hitting a triple century.

That is extremely challenging for any person’s mental makeup, but Karun deserves praise for persevering through it. It all seems great for him because he performed well in the KPL as well.
