Chennai


CHE Bio

Owned by The India Cements Ltd., Chennai have been the most dominating team in the IPL since its inception in 2008. The team's name draws inspiration from the rich tradition of the golden Tamil era that boasted of many great, fearless rulers. The franchise seems to have stuck to its cultural background, and have exhibited their talent on the cricketing field as well. 

Led by captain cool MS Dhoni, the Super Kings have performed consistently since the beginning – finalists in the first edition, semi-finalists in the second, champions in the third, and then history was created as they successfully defended their title in the fourth edition, becoming the first team in IPL to do so. With a perfect balance of Indian as well as international players, the team comes across as a tough nut to crack. They not only dominated the IPL, but also went on to win the Champions League T20 title in 2010, surpassing all other teams in the world. Dhoni's army went into the 2011 edition of the CLT20 as defending champions, but failed to defend it successfully and were knocked out in the league stages itself. 

However, the Super Kings stuck to the same squad for the 2012 IPL edition; the only addition being that of Ravindra Jadeja who was bought in the auctions, thereby making him the costliest buy of the season. They had a fairly moderate season, winning games here and there but came good in the playoffs, ultimately finishing as the runners-up, losing to eventual winners, Kolkata. Yet again in 2013, they entered the finals but were beaten by Mumbai.
