Deepak Chahar has been a pivotal part of the yellow-clad outfit in the past by being part of two titles winning team in the last four years. The pacer has grabbed 58 wickets during the period at an economy rate of 7.7.
He has also improved on his batting over the years and the impact of it was seen during Indias matches against South Africa and Sri Lanka recently.
He was bought for Rs 80 lakh by CSK in the 2018 auction, and while the Chennai team will once again try to acquire the pacer in the auction, he is destined to earn more than his base price of Rs 2 crore.
