Chennai Super Kings have opted to release David Willey from their squad along with former India pacer Mohit Sharma. Willey played 3 matches in the 2018 season and picked up two wickets. He was not part of the squad last season for personal reasons. CSK have once again placed their faith on experience by retaining the likes of Shane Watson, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo and Imran Tahir who were instrumental in their journey to the final last year.
