IPL 2023: In the IPL 2023 season, Telugu player Bhagat Varma has become a part of the Chennai Super Kings team. Right-arm off-spinner Kanumuri Bhagat Varman was sold to Chennai Super Kings for Rs. 20 lakhs and bought it. Bhagat Verma also has the ability to bat right-handed.
24-year-old Bhagat Verma has played three first-class matches and taken four wickets in his career. He took only two wickets in five T20 matches. But the crucial economy in T20s is just 5.81. It is not known how effective Bhagat Verma can be in batting. He didn’t get a chance to bat much in his first class career.

Indian Premier League 2023 is going to start in another 48 hours. The first match of this season will be held between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans. The most experienced team in this league is Chennai Super Kings. Chennai’s performance has been excellent in almost every season.
CSK has reached the playoffs in every season except two seasons in the IPL tournament. Apart from this, he did not play in the tournament in two seasons. While Suresh Raina was unavailable, Chennai Super Kings did not reach the playoffs in the two seasons.
Suresh Raina made his debut in the first season of IPL. In the debut match, he made headlines with his fast batting against Punjab Kings. Raina scored 32 runs in just 13 balls with the help of three sixes and two fours. Since then Suresh Raina has continued to perform well. That’s why Raina got the name ‘Mr IPL’.
Another interesting fact is that whenever Suresh Raina was in the team, Chennai reached the playoffs. But he was not part of the team for two seasons. Chennai failed to reach the playoffs in both those seasons.
Chennai reached the playoffs in every season played from 2008 to 2015. During this time Suresh Raina became a part of the team. But then Chennai was banned for two years for match fixing. CSK was not part of IPL in 2016, 2017. After this he returned. In 2018 and 2019, Chennai reached the playoffs.
But then in the year 2020, Suresh Raina was not part of the team. Even Chennai Super Kings could not reach the playoffs then. After this the team reached the playoffs again in 2021 after Raina’s return. But again in 2022, Suresh Raina was not part of Chennai Super Kings team. Even Chennai did not make it to the playoffs this season. So far Suresh Raina has played 205 matches in IPL and scored 5528 runs.
