CSK are the two-time IPL champions (2010 & 2011). They have always been one of the strongest teams in the tournament. CSK is a nightmare for their opponents. The side is coached by Stephen Fleming alongside their bowling coach Andy Bichel. Everyone knows CSK is led by India’s most successful captain MS Dhoni.

CSK has been amongst the big spenders this season. Team bought 8 players Michael Hussey, Irfan Pathan, Rahul Sharma, Kyle Abbott, Andrew Tye, Ankush Bains, Pratyush Singh and Eklavya Dwivedi.

CSK got a great combination of Indian and overseas star players in their squad. The team has one of the most powerful batting line-up in the tournament. They have Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Smith, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis and MS Dhoni to score big and fast.

Their bowling department is also impeccable. They have Ravichandran Ashwin, Samul Badree, Ashish Nehra, Matt Henry, Irfan Pathan and Mohit Sharma. They are capable of destroying the any batting order. The team has some brilliant all-rounders including Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, and Mithun Manhas too.

I am going to tell you the most important success factor for the CSK. All players in their playing 11 have international exposure. They have experience of playing for their national sides. It is going to be a huge bonus for them. They have a great chance to lift the cup 3rd time.
