Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is a cricket team that competes in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and is based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The 2008-founded team competes in its home games at Chennai’s M. A. Chidambaram Stadium.
India Cement Limited, via holding company Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited, owns the team. The team’s owners’ involvement in the 2013 IPL betting case resulted in a two-year suspension from the IPL beginning in July 2015, and it won the title in its 2018 comeback season. MS Dhoni serves as the team’s captain, and Stephen Fleming is the head coach. CSK became the country’s first unicorn sports organization in January 2022.
|Name||Chennai Super Kings|
|Home Ground||M. A. Chidambaram Stadium|
|Team Owner||N. Srinivasan|
To honour the emperors of the Tamil empire, the Chennai franchise gave the team the name Chennai Super Kings. Particularly in Tamil Nadu, southern India frequently uses the word “super.” The team’s name is also derived from the “Coromandel King” brand of India Cements.
The team name is depicted in blue beside an orange roaring lion’s head on the logo. The crown that appears above the team name is the same one that appears in the Coromandel King brand logo. Since the lion is the ruler of the jungle, the roaring lion logo, in the opinion of the logo designers, reflects the team name. The logo’s elements represent a number of characteristics, including vitality, youth, a commitment to excellence, and a fiery attitude.
The team’s anthem is “Whistle Podu,” a composition by Aravind-Shankar (duo of Aravind Murali and Jaishankar Iyer). Even though the song was initially made for YouTube in 2008, it got famous throughout the 2009 campaign and eventually became the team’s anthem. The street dance known as dappangutthu, which is particularly popular among some communities in Tamil Nadu, is depicted in the song’s music video. Tamil movie also uses this style of music and dancing. In the song video, whistling by some Super Kings players was captured on tape.

The Super Kings had a difficult first half of the 2010 regular season, winning only two of seven games. The performances of Murali Vijay and Suresh Raina helped them win four of their following five games of the season. In the championship game, the Super Kings hosted the tournament favorite Mumbai Indians.  The Super Kings recovered from 68/3 after 12 overs to 168/5 at the end of their 20 overs because to Suresh Raina’s 57 (35) runs. In order to help the Super Kings win the game by 22 runs and capture their first ever IPL title, their spin pair of Ravichandran Ashwin and Muralitharan only allowed 41 runs to be scored in the 8 overs they combined to bowl.
The IPL Governing Council announced in 2011 that each club could keep a maximum of four players from their squad, only three of whom could be Indian players, and that the other international players would be placed up for auction. They again met the same opponents in the championship game, which was played at their home field, Chepauk Stadium. A 133-run first-wicket stand between Vijay and Hussey enabled the Super Kings to post a score of 205/5. Then, their bowlers held Bangalore to just 147, leading the Super Kings to their second straight IPL championship. Due to his 95-run innings, which won the match, Vijay was named Man of the Match.

Cheteshwar Pujara, a Test specialist, was acquired by CSK for a base price of Rs 50 lakh during the 2021 auctions, while Krishnappa Gowtham cost a staggering Rs 9.25 crore, making him the most expensive uncapped Indian purchase ever. Additionally, they paid Rs 7 crore to get English all-rounder Moeen Ali. CSK defeated Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1 to advance quickly to the finals for the ninth time in their history.
