Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is a Chennai based franchisee team which had been playing in IPL since its inception in 2008. The team was banned for two year and hence did not play in IPL 2016 and IPL 2017. The team will once again play in this year’s IPL i.e., Vivo IPL 2018.

The franchisee is currently owned by Chennai Super Kings Cricket Ltd (Wholly-owned Subsidiary of India Cements) headed by former International Cricket Council Chairman N. Srinivasan.

In July 2015, India’s Supreme Court suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals team for a period of two years for involvement in corruption and match fixing scandal and hence both the teams could not participate in IPl 2016 and IPL 2017.

Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful and consistent teams in IPL, having won the IPL title twice, in 2010 and 2011.

That’s not all, from the inaugural season in 2008 till IPL 2015, they have reached the play-offs every season (the only team to achieve that feat). They have reached the finals 4 times.

Apart from this they have won the Champions League T20 (CL T20) title twice, in 2010 and 2014.

Fans of Chennai Super Kings would be exited for the comeback of the team in IPL 2018.
