3 teams to target Varun CV for IPL 2023 if he is released by KKR –

Kolkata Knight Riders retained Varun CV for INR 8 Cr before mega auctions of IPL 2022. However, in eight matches, the mystery spinner was able to take just four wickets at an average of 61. He was later dropped from the XI. Given the player’s form, fitness and huge salary, it wouldn’t be a surprise if KKR released the player. A few other teams may be interested in his services for IPL 2023. In this article, we take a look at three teams who should target Varun CV for IPL 2023 if he is released by KKR.

1) Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB had formed a good spin attack consisting of Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed and Glenn Maxwell for IPL 2022. Shahbaz and Maxwell have done well in their limited role but although he has taken wickets Hasaranga has not created the impact that he had expected. He misses his lines and lengths too often and that’s why he goes for a lot of runs.

The Sri Lankan gets a salary of more than INR 10 Cr and RCB might as well release him for the auctions. In that case, they can target Varun to lead the spin attack. With Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps, Varun can rediscover his old touch. On the other hand, RCB could target Wanindu again, but at a lower price.

2) Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians is one of the teams that Varun CV should target for IPL 2023 if released by KKR. MI did not have a single reliable spinner after the auctions. People like Murugan Ashwin have failed so far. So there is room for a new spinner in the team.

Kumar Karthikeya has shown promise and if Varun can be matched up with the youngster, MI might have a good spin attack in their ranks. Therefore, the five-time champions could focus on the player.

3) Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings has used Rahul Chahar in all games so far. However, the leggings did not leave a big impression. While he will be supported to get well, PBKS might consider providing the youngster with a good partner.

Varun’s first IPL team was actually Punjab Kings. It may not come as a surprise if the franchise moves back in for the player. In this way, Punjab can have a more complete spin attack for IPL 2023.
