CSK Team History
CSK has been a part of some controversies in the middle period of the Indian Premier League. Amidst all that, they are the second most successful in the history of IPL. Currently, they are the holders of three IPL trophies. Chennai won the title for the first time in 2010, and successfully defended it in 2011.
The 2010 edition saw Mumbai Indians at the receiving end. CSK defeated them easily by 22 runs to secure their first ever IPL title. Next year, it was time for RCB to get destroyed by Chennai in the final. Chennai having made 205 in the first innings, reduced RCB to just 147 to win the match and the trophy convincingly by 58 runs.
The last IPL trophy that CSK won was in 2018. This time around, it was Sunrisers Hyderabad who couldn’t get past the Chennai franchise, and eventually gave them their third trophy. Besides all this, CSK has been the runner-up team for a record five-time. 2008, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2019 were the years when Chennai Super Kings finished the tournament as the second-best team. Imagine them winning all of their finals, and having 8 titles under their belt as of now. But, not to be.
CSK Team Coaches
Managing a franchise like Chennai Super Kings, requires some exceptional administration. Not to mention, CSK has exactly that. Looking at the head coach of the team, we see Stephen Fleming. Afterward, we have none other than Mr. Cricket, Michael Hussey himself, as the batting coach. Lakshmipathy Balaji, the former India international fast bowler is the bowling coach of the team. So, Chennai has got some great men at work who can train and mentor the players to give their 101% in the field.
