CSK Team Performance

2009 IPL

In 2009, CSK bought English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff for a whopping amount of 1.55 million dollars. However, he played only 3 matches and got injured. The IPL was shifted to South Africa due to the General Elections and the Super Kings reached the semifinals but couldn’t make it to the finals for the second time. The Anil Kumble led Royal Challengers Bangalore beat them in the semifinals. Matthew Hayden was adjusted the player of the season for his 572 runs in 12 innings.

CSK’s 1st Win in IPL

CSK had a meek start to the 2010 season, winning only 2 out off 7 games. Murali Vijay and Suresh Raina’s immense contributions made them win the next 4 games out of 5.  On the back of an inspired spell from Doug Bollinger of 4 for 13 in four overs, they defeated Deccan Chargers in the semifinals. CSK also went on to win the finals against Mumbai Indians by 22 runs.

The 2011 Victory

The Chennai Franchise retained MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay and Albie Morkel for 2011 season and bought back Mike Hussey, R Ashwin, Doug Bollinger and Subramaniam Badrinath at the auctions.  In the qualifying final, CSK faced Royal Challengers Bangalore and won by 6 wickets. However, Bangalore entered the finals again as the teams that finish at the top two spots get two chances to qualify. But, it was CSK again that took away the cake.

The Disappointing 2012

Ravindra Jadeja was added to CSK for an outstanding sum of 2 million dollars. It was again a slow start for the Super Kings but they picked up their pace in the later half of the 2012 tournament. CSK had to face the revamped Kolkata Knight Riders led by Gautam Gambhir in the finals. They set a target of 191 but Knight Riders chased it down with 2 balls and 5 wickets left.

Unfortunate 2013-2017

CSK again made it to the finals in 2013, topping the table for the first time in six years. They also equalled Royal Challengers Bangalore’s 2011 record of 7 wins on a trot. In the first qualifier, they beat Mumbai Indians but had to play the same team again in the finals.

Mumbai Indians made 148/9 in their 20 overs. In reply, the Super Kings were reduced to 39/6 at one stage before an unbeaten half-century from skipper Dhoni took them close to the target. However, Mumbai Indians won the match by 23 runs to win their first ever IPL title.

In 2014, before the players’ mega-auction, Chennai retained Dhoni, Raina, Jadeja, Ashwin and Bravo. At the auction, they bought Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith, Faf du Plessis, Ashish Nehra, Mohit Sharma among others. CSK finished third in the points table and qualified for the Eliminator against the fourth-placed Mumbai Indians. They won the eliminator and went on to play the qualifier against Kings XI Punjab. Punjab went on to score 226/6 in their 20 overs.

The Super Kings, in reply, could manage only 202/7 and were crashed out of the tournament. In 2015, the lost in the finals to Mumbai Indians. The team was banned for two years – 2016 and 2017.

Overseas Players

Sam Billings ( England), Faf Du Plessis (South Africa), Mitchell Santer (New Zealand), David Willey (England), Dwyane Bravo ( West Indies), Shane Watson (Australia) , Lungi Ngidi (South Africa) , Imran Tahir (South Africa).
