The India U-19 star has spent the entire IPL 2022 on the bench after being picked for Rs 1.5 Crore at the IPL 2022 Auction. He is a bowling all-rounder and was seen practising with MS Dhoni at the nets before IPL 2022 began. As the RR match will be CSK’s last, it won’t affect anything if they play him.

With Chennai Super Kings needing a lot of new strategies next season after a disastrous IPL 2022, Hangargekar could be their ace. In Deepak Chahar’s absence, Mukesh Choudhary stepped up. While it was not enough for CSK to avoid a bottom-two finish, their confidence on youngsters paid off. Hangargekar could be the next find only if CSK trust him to do the job.

As for other places, Robin Uthappa and Ambato Rayudu are likely to spend time on the bench after enduring lacklustre form. Shivam Dube could get another go or MS Dhoni may prefer another new face in Hari Nishanth.

In pace department, Mukesh Choudhary is likely to continue while New Malinga Matheesha Pathirana may get another go after an impressive debut against Gujarat Titans.
