Who Are the Chennai Super Kings?

One of the most loved franchises in the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings doesn’t need any introduction. CSK enjoys a massive fan following across the globe and is currently the second most valuable IPL franchise. 

The Super Kings are a very popular IPL cricket team and they are well supported in their native India and all over the world. The fans like to describe themselves as the Yellow Army and for those wanting to be part of an official supporters club, you can sign up to the “Whistle Podu Army”.

Yellow Army

The Yellow Army have been part of the league since its inception and is the joint-most successful franchise along with Mumbai Indians. Owing to their consistent performances throughout the years, CSK have managed to garner love and admiration from across the world. 

The legendary captain, MS Dhoni has been captaining the franchise since the inaugural season. Under him, CSK have won as many as five titles, played finals on 10 occasions, and reached playoffs 12 out of 14 seasons that they played. 

The Chennai Super Kings franchise is owned by India Cements through their holding company, the Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited. India Cements Managing Director N. Srinivasan is currently the owner of Chennai Super Kings. 

Indian bettors are looking to CSK more and more in the outrights following two or the three most recent wins in the IPL. Also player bets are very popular with this team, due to the line up of stars in their team. There was an IPL online betting frenzy for CSK in the 2023 season, and some bettors were richly rewarded for backing this team.

The IPL History of Chennai Super Kings

CSK is the most consistent team in the Indian Premier League history. They finished third on the points table at the end of the league stage in the inaugural edition. They went on to reach the final but lost to Rajasthan Royals in the summit clash. 

In the following season, they finished second after the league stage but the hopes of lifting the titles were crushed after they lost to RCB in the semi-final. CSK reached the final for the second time in the 2010 season and this time, they ensured they lifted the title. 

The Yellow Army beat Mumbai Indians in the final to lift their first-ever IPL trophy. CSK became the first team to lift two consecutive titles after they beat RCB in the final of the 2012 season. The fans were overjoyed as CSK made a special place in their hearts. 

Losses in finals

2012 and 2013 edition saw them reaching the final on both occasions but failed to lift the title for the third time.

CSK, once again, lost the final in the 2015 edition at the hands of Mumbai Indians but what followed, thereafter, left everyone in shock. The Yellow Army led by MS Dhoni was banned from playing the league for two seasons due to the involvement of its owners in the 2013 betting case. 

MS Dhoni and Co. made its comeback in the 2018 edition and lifted the title for the third time to, once again, exert their supremacy. They replicated the feat in the 2021 edition after beating KKR in the final.  CSK had a poor outing in the 2022 edition but lifted their fifth title in the 2023 edition to become only the second franchise to win five titles in the cash-rich league
