DLF IPL Teams Description

Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings Owned by India Cements, Chennai Super Kings have been one of the consistent performers at IPL. Finishing as runners-up in the inaugural edition, they bagged the coveted title in 2010. For the first three editions, big ticket Indian players like MS Dhoni rubbed shoulders with international talents like Muttiah Muralitharan, Michael Hussey and Matthew Hayden and rising stars like Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay and Ravichandran Ashwin. The side went all the way at the South Africa edition of CLT20 making 2010 a doubly successful year.

Ahead of the IPL Player Auction 2011, the Super Kings retained the services of captain Dhoni, M Vijay, Raina and Albie Morkel. At the auction, not only did they bring back players like S Badrinath, Ashwin, Doug Bollinger and Hussey, but also made some inspired picks like Dwayne Bravo and Faf du Plessis. With a good dose of Indian players in their squad including the young Anirudha Srikkanth and Yo Mahesh, the Super Kings look a well-balanced outfit.
