Former India pacer Ashish Nehra was picked up by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for a base price of INR 2 crores in the 2014 Indian Premier League (IPL)Player Auctions.

 

Chennai apart from Nehra also have picked up Faf Du Plessis, Dwayne Smith, Brendon McCullum and Mohit Sharma in their ranks.

 

The inclusion of Nehra may prove to be a boost for Chennai’s bowling with the Indian pacer having good experience of playing for the national team.

 

Nehra has also represented three other IPL teams in the past, namely Mumbai Indians (MI), Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Pune Warriors India (PWI).

 

Though Nehra may not feature in the Indian team’s current plans, still this IPL stint may be vital in reviving his sagging career.
