In the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have signed South African fast bowler Sisanda Magala as a replacement for injured New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson. Jamieson, who CSK paid INR 1 crore for, had to withdraw from the tournament due to an injury.
Magala, who will join CSK for a base salary of INR 50 lakh, brings a wealth of T20 experience despite only playing four T20Is for South Africa. Over the years, the talented bowler has established himself as a reliable wicket-taker in domestic T20 matches.
The decision by CSK to sign Magala as a replacement for Jamieson was a wise one, as the South African’s ability to consistently take wickets could prove to be a valuable asset for the team. With the IPL season quickly approaching, CSK will be hoping that Magala can make an immediate impact and help the team win the tournament.
