Founded in 2008, Chennai Super Kings is one of IPL's star attractions captained by the mercurial MS Dhoni. CSK did the double in 2010 winning both the IPL trophy & Champions League T20 and also become the first ever IPL team to win in consequent seasons when they were crowned champions in 2011. The team later went on to win the CLT20 in 2014.
After serving a two season ban, CSK returned to the IPL fold in 2018. The team plays its home matches at the MA Chidambaran Stadium also known as Chepauk. The team logo features a head of a roaring lion in orange with the team name rendered in blue and a crown while 'Whistle Podu' is its theme song.
The team is skippered by MS Dhoni with Stephen Fleming, the head coach.
