After already winning three Indian Premier League (IPL) titles, defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be eyeing their fourth IPL crown in 2019. The 12th edition of the IPL, which is slated to kick off sometime in March next year, will be CSK's second shot at the coveted title after serving a two-year ban over the spot-fixing scandal. And in order to prepare for the IPL 2019, CSK added two names in their arsenal at the IPL 2019 auction - Mohit Sharma and RutuRaj Gaikwad.

He has played 26 ODIs and eight T20Is. However, he has a decent T20 record, having played 110 matches, with 109 wickets to his name.

RutuRaj Gaikwad, 21, from Maharashtra who was lapped up for Rs 20 lakh, is a prospective batsman, having played nine first-class and 29 List A games for Maharashtra.
