History

MS Dhoni, Captain of the Chennai Super Kings

The Chennai Super Kings are a part of the Indian Premier League, made up of 10 teams. It's the most successful and consistent team in IPL history. It is also one of the teams with great batting depth. Their captain is the Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The franchise is currently owned by India Cements, who paid US$91 million to acquire the rights to the franchise for 10 years in 2008.[4] N. Srinivasan, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of India Cements Ltd., is the de facto owner of the Chennai Super Kings, by means of his position within the company. He is also the President of the BCCI.

Krishnamachari Srikkanth, former captain of the Indian cricket team and the current chairman of the National Selection Committee, was the brand ambassador for the franchise till the end of season 3 when his 3-year contract got over, and former Indian opener V. B. Chandrasekhar is the Chief Selector. To gather more support from local fans, actor Vijay and actress Nayantara were also appointed as ambassadors. Nayantara was later removed because she could not attend matches. Vijay served as the brand Ambassador till the end of the 2009 season and has been removed after that.

2008 season

Chennai Super Kings playing the Kolkata Knight Riders at the M.A. Chidambaram Cricket Stadium in the 2008 Indian Premier League.

During the first player auctions for the inaugural IPL season, conducted in January 2008, the Chennai team was able to buy a number of contemporary star cricketers such as Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Matthew Hayden and Michael Hussey. The Super Kings had a solid start to the tournament by winning their first game against Kings XI Punjab scoring 240/5 which was the highest total of the tournament, a record surpassed by themselves in 2010.[5] The Super Kings also won their next three games against Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore. But their winning run in the tournament took a hit when their overseas stars Matthew Hayden, Michael Hussey and Jacob Oram had to leave for national duties. Their departure immediately affected their performance as the Super Kings who had won their first four games lost their next three games. The batting, although inconsistent, eventually adjusted to the losses of Hayden and Hussey with contributions from Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Albie Morkel. The Super Kings despite having a roller-coaster ride in the second half managed to ensure a semi-final slot by beating the Deccan Chargers in their last league fixture.[6]

The side had finished third at the league table with 16 points. The Chennai Super Kings played their first semi-final against the Kings XI Punjab whom they managed to defeat by 9 wickets, thus entering the final,[7] which they lost to Rajasthan Royals by three wickets off the last ball.[8]

2009 season

The Super Kings brought English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff for $1.55 million making him the highest-paid IPL cricketer along with Kevin Pietersen of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Apart from Flintoff the Chennai Super Kings also brought Thilan Thushara, George Bailey, Murali Vijay and Shadab Jakati.

The Chennai Super Kings were defeated in their first game of the tournament by the Mumbai Indians.[9] But they immediately bounced back by beating the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their next game. The Super Kings however lost against the Delhi Daredevils and Deccan Chargers with an abandoned game in between. But the Chennai Super Kings went on to win their next 5 consecutive games to get 13 points from 10 games. The Super Kings despite losing to Royal Challengers and Kolkata Knight Riders assured themselves a semi-final berth by beating the Mumbai Indians and the Kings XI Punjab.[10]

The Super Kings finished with 17 points and earned a second place at the league table. However at the semi-finals the Super Kings' hope of entering the final for a second time was crushed by the resurgent Royal Challengers who proceeded to play the final against the Deccan Chargers.[11]

2010 season

The Super Kings added Justin Kemp and Thissara Perera to their roster, one filling an empty slot while the other shall serve as a substitute to Andrew Flintoff, who has planned to skip that season. The Super Kings also roped in former ICL cricketer Hemang Badani and local all-rounder Ganapathy.

The Super Kings started their tournament against the defending champions, Deccan Chargers, which they lost by 31 runs. But they bounced back into the top 4 by beating the Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils. However the side witnessed a heap of defeats in their next 4 games terribly endangering their chances to the semi-finals. But the Chennai Super Kings made a decent comeback by winning their eighth and ninth games against the Royal Challengers and Rajasthan Royals with the help of two superb batting performances from Murali Vijay. His performance was supplemented by the arrival of Doug Bollinger who boosted the team's bowling attack significantly.[12] The Super Kings managed to win 5 of the matches played in the latter half of the season thanks to the superb bowling performance of Ravichandran Ashwin, boosting their Net Run Rate, and allowed them to qualify for the semi-finals as three other teams were tied on the same number of points.[13]

The Super Kings defeated the Deccan Chargers at the semi-final to qualify for their second IPL final.[14] The win also assured them a place in the Champions League Twenty20. At the IPL final the Chennai Super Kings played the Mumbai Indians and won by 22 runs to crown themselves the Champions of the tournament.[15]

The Super Kings started their IPL 2011 campaign with a thrilling win against Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai by just 2 runs but lost their next game to the Kings XI Punjab after a stellar innings by Paul Valthaty.Michael Hussey's unbeaten 83 helped them to defeat the Royal Challengers Bangalore before losing to the Kochi Tuskers Kerala in a rain affected match at the latter's home ground.

Cricket academy in Chennai

Former Chennai Super Kings' opener and 2009 Orange Cap-holder, Matthew Hayden has planned to set up a youth academy in Chennai and wants to take the help of Rahul Dravid and his Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming in the venture.[27] Hayden said he had decided to give back to the city where he had practiced playing on turning tracks ten years ago on Australia's 2000–01 tour to India."About a decade back, when I came here to practise on turning tracks, I told myself standing in an empty Chepauk stadium that I would score a century for Australia one day," Hayden told the Times of India. "I did that, and now this is a way of giving something back to the city from where I have got so much."[27]

Financial worth

The Economic Times commissioned UK-based Brand Finance to carry out brand evaluation of the IPL and also each of the eight franchise teams (that has been increased to 10 in 2011). Chennai Super Kings has been rated as 2010–2011 “most valuable team” in Indian Premier League cricket, with a brand value of US$48.4 million (app INR 224 crores).[28] which is 2.4 million more than Kolkata Knight Riders, whose brand value stood at $46 million.

In 2011,a survey conducted by Rediff indicated that Super kings were once again the most valuable franchise in the tournament with a brand valuation of $ 70.16 million.This comes as a surprise as the brand value of the tournament itself had crashed down by $460 million and most of the other franchises had registered huge losses.[29]

New stadium

A new stadium is to be built at a Chennai suburb in addition to the famous Chepauk Ground located in the heart of the city. The new stadium will be located at Karunkuzhipallam which is 25 km from Chennai, on a 50-acre (200,000 m2) plot of land on the IT corridor, The stadium is being built as the current lease of the Chepauk stadium expires in 2015. The new stadium is expected to cost over INR 100 crore.[30]
