Brief History of Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is an IPL Franchise based in Chennai. The franchise was found in 2008 during the first phase of team auctions. The team was bought by the India Cements Ltd. for US$ 91 million and the current Brand Value of the team is estimated around US$ 75.13 million. Since their establishment, the current Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the captain of Chennai Super Kings. Former South African legend Kepler Wessels was the coach for CSK for the first season of the Indian Premier League in the year 2007 but since the next season in 2008, former New Zealand captain Stephen Flemming has taken over as a coach of the team.


The Chennai Super Kings team has been the most successful team in the Indian Premier League because having two titles in their cupboard. Apart from this CSK has been part of every Playoff of the IPL till now. They hold the longest winning streak in the IPL by winning 7 matches in the row. In the first season of IPL in 2008, CSK lost to Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 3 wickets and ended up as runners up. In 2009 they lost to The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 6 wickets. 2010 brought the happiness for the CSK for the first time in IPL as they beat the favorites Mumbai Indians (MI) in front of their home crowd by 22 runs. Next year they beat RCB by 12 runs to win their consecutive IPL title in 2011. Next year again, they reached the finals but lost to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 5 wickets despite putting 190 runs on the board. 2013 they again met MI in the finals, but this time MI beat CSK comfortably by 23 runs.


In 2013 when spot-fixing was exposed by media, CSK and its boss, Gurunath Meiyappan came under the scanner and just recently the Supreme Court of India has directed the BCCI Chief N Srinivasan who also happens to be the MD of India Cements Ltd. to leave his post as BCCI President and remove all the staff of India Cements Ltd from BCCI.
