IPL And Chennai super kings this alignment is a deadly-combination . The kind of the impact this team has over the years is just unbelievable. The only team in the IPL history to qualify for the 10 playoffs in their 10 appearances. Two times champions league trophy winners and three times IPL trophy Winners. These numbers are more than enough to know how consistent this yellow army is over the other franchise in the IPL history and regarded as one of the best team in IPL.


To understand the meaning of consistency go through the team selection criteria of management in history. The smartest picks in every year auction rather go up for pinch-hitters or T-20 specialists with the highest bid by the other franchises. Chennai super kings not just have a balanced team in every season they have played but the back-ups of the players CSK has made them completely invincible over others. Players like Suresh Raina have been the consistent players for Chennai super kings over the years and are the only players to cross 400 run mark in 9 consecutive seasons.



IPL is all about records from its inception and without a doubt if a team is consistent he would be holding up the records under his feathers. CSK is no different in that. 

Let us take a look at top 4 records held by CSK In The long IPL history:


1. Highest Winning Percentage:


If a team is so consistent then definitely this team has a habit of winning games. 10 seasons 10 Playoffs can you guess what percentage of team after such dominance? 60.61% having such a high percentage in the most difficult format of the game turned the Chennai super kings the best side to ever played in the IPL.


No other teams have been so consistent or near this record of CSK and without a doubt not will be coming season. Out of the total 165 games CSK has won 100 games and they were at the top of the table quite a few times.


2. Maximum number of times playing an IPL Finals:


There are teams in the IPL who haven't qualified for finals once yet there is a team who has made it to the finals like no other.


Out of 10 season Chennai super kings featured in they have been to the 8 finals – most extreme by any team in the IPL history. The next one in the race is Mumbai Indians with five times into the finals.


One record CSK certainly needs to move away from qualifying the most number of times in the finals yet they are the ones who have lost the finals most number of times.


3.  First team to breach the barrier of 100 run mark in a power play:


Having immense batting talents in shed like Mathew Hayden, Micheal Hussey, Suresh Raina and Albie Morkel. CSK has racked up runs like flood in every season. From orange cap holder in early season Consistently CSK also holds the record as the fastest team 100 in the power play.


Back in 2014, it was the eliminator game between Chennai super kings and Kings XI Punjab. Batting first KXIP put on 226/5 in their allocated 20 overs.


Chennai super kings needed the strong start but their opener back into the shed very early then came in the Mr consistent of IPL Suresh Raina who took on the charge and played one of the greatest IPL innings.


Suresh Raina smashed quick fire 87 runs off 25 balls and took the scoreboard over 100 in just 6 overs. CSK was looking confident and was pretty much sure to chase the total but a bizarre run out of Suresh Raina turned things around for CSK after which the team lost the game to KXIP.


One more time has crossed the barrier of 100 runs in 2017 when Kolkata knight riders openers scored 105 against Royal challengers Bangalore. Only two times in IPL have done this magic before and with the current season almost there to begin it is sure we will see some of the unreal exhibitions in the upcoming season of the cash-rich league.



4.  Most Appearances as a captain:


174 No, it is not a random number in between. It’s the number of times MS Dhoni has captained his team. The most any captain in the IPL history and he is far ahead from the others in the league. This record is not easy to go after as MS Dhoni will play the upcoming season and will add more matches under his name as captain which makes it even more difficult to break.


A Captain leading from the front and setting an example of greatest captain and a force to reckon with. A team of par excellence and the ability to dominate their game like no others.
