R Ashwin 'Returns To CSK' Ahead Of IPL 2025 Auction

India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took up a new role with the Chennai Super Kings, a franchise he played for the Indian Premier League from 2008 to 2015. Though Ashwin remains associated with the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL at present, he took up the responsibility of CSK's high-performance center after being roped in by owners India Cements. The center is expected to be fully operational by the start of IPL 2025 season, with Ashwin playing key role in its development, especially with regards to CSK's academies.

In a move that could potentially reunite him with the Chennai Super Kings at next year's IPL mega auction, star Indian all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin has rejoined the India Cements setup. As part of the deal, Ashwin will take charge of CSK's new High-Performance Center coming up on the outskirts of Chennai.

The transfer puts Ashwin in a strong position to rejoin his former IPL franchise CSK when teams sit in the auction for IPL 2025. Due to the mega auction, the veteran spinner cannot be traded from his current side Rajasthan Royals (RR) to CSK. The auction will provide CSK best opportunity to reacquire the off-spinner's services after he last played for them in 2015.

CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan was also elated to have the iconic player resume his association with the franchise.

Ahead of the IPL 2025 season, a mega auction will be held. Though the details of retention aren't finalised, it has been said the franchises might only be allowed to retain a maximum of 4 players each. If that happens, Ashwin might not be retained by the Royals.

During his time at CSK, Ashwin helped the MS Dhoni-led side win consecutive IPL titles in 2010 and 2011. Even during the next four seasons, Ashwin helped CSK reach the playoffs every single time.
