The IPL 2022 season wasn't great for the fans of Chennai Super Kings, and it is their worst season after the IPL 2020 edition, which was played in the United Arab Emirates.

In both seasons, CSK couldn't qualify for the playoffs, and they were strangled in the bottom position of the points table. The yellow will look to give a good performance this time around. 

Robin Uthappa, the opening batter of the Chennai Super Kings team, has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, which also includes the cash-rich league tournament, Indian Premiere League (IPL).

Uthappa was part of the CSK franchise when the Yellow Army won their fourth title in IPL 2021 season. 

Robin was also part of Mumbai Indians in the inaugural season and Kolkata Knight Riders Franchise (KKR) for many years.

Then he played for the Double R's Rajasthan Royals franchise. Uthappa had a good career with KKR and CSK because they allowed him to open the innings for their franchise.

But his IPL career wasn't so great with the MI and RR franchise because Robin was asked to bat in the middle order, which is not suitable for Uthappa.

Four batters who will replace Robin Uthappa

  • Shubman Gill

According to the rumors, the title-winning team, Gujarat Titans, has parted ways with the classic opener, Shubman Gill. The 21-year-old right-handed opener was the best opening batter for GT in their maiden season.

The next auction of the Indian Premier League is not far away. So Gill can be targeted if in case he has parted ways with Hardik Pandya's GT.

Shubman has the technique, hand-eye coordination, footwork, and most importantly, he has the hunger to score big runs, which makes him a suitable and first-choice replacement for Robin Uthappa in the next season. 

Gill will also want to work under the best captain MS Dhoni. Like every youngster, Shubman will be keen to be in the Yellow Army squad to work under Mahi Bhai.

This batter has been listed in the fifth position of the highest run-getters in the IPL 2022 season. He has played 16 matches and scored 483 runs with four half-centuries for GT in the last season.

Gill is a promising batter who has also done well for India in the red ball format. His international career can go upward if Gill gets to work under one of the greatest minds, MS Dhoni. 

  • Manan Vohra

The second option for CSK to replace Robin Uthappa is Manan Vohra. The top-order batter is also experienced in the Indian Premier League. Vohra was with the Rajasthan Royals earlier and joined Lucknow Supergiants in the IPL 2022 season.

But he was only their backup option, and he didn't get enough game time to prove his worth for those two franchises. The Yellow Army can pick Vohra as their premiere opening batter and replacement for Robin Uthappa. 

Manan is an aggressive opening batter who can give solid starts to the innings. CSK didn’t get good starts in this IPL 2022 season for many games, which is why they lost many matches.

Vohra will help CSK solve their opening issues because he can score quick runs and also has all the shorts in the book, which will put the pressure back on the opposition.  

  • Mandeep Singh

Another aggressive opening batter who can replace Robin Uthappa in the top-order slot is Mandeep Singh. Mandeep is the opening batter who can be targeted in the upcoming auctions of the IPL 2023 season.

Mandeep Singh is also an aggressive batter known to give quick starts in T20 cricket. He also has the experience of playing the cash-rich league tournament.

Singh has played 108 games till now and scored 1692 runs with a strike rate of 123.32. He is the best option, especially when Uthappa and Faf du Plessis are not with the Chennai Super Kings squad for the next season.

  • Colin Munro

The first and only overseas player in this list is the Kiwi opener, Colin Munro, who can replace Robin Uthappa in the upcoming IPL 2023 season for the Chennai Super Kings.

The opener from New Zealand is a terrific batter in the top order, and CSK will need his aggressive approach at the top. He is also the perfect batter to partner with Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Munro can also maximize the powerplay overs. 

CSK will need the services of Munro as the opener, especially after what happened in the IPL 2020 and IPL 2022 seasons. Munro is a perfect overseas batter to come in as a replacement for Uthappa.

The Kiwi opener also has the experience of playing at the International level. Despite less exposure in the IPL and not offering much with the ball, Colin Munro can be a perfect pick for the Yellow Army because he can offer so much with the wooden willow.
