IPL 2018: Chennai Super Kings Team Profile
New Delhi, April 3 - With the core of their original squad intact, two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be eager to re-establish their dominance after returning to the lucrative Twenty20 tournament following a two-year ban.
CSK have a formidable track record in the IPL and have notched up the most number of appearances in the final. Apart from winning the title twice, they have finished runners-up on four occasions.
The southern outfit are clearly out to regain that status. To that end, they have built up a formidable batting line-up.
They have regained the services of the indomitable Mahendra Singh Dhoni as captain and have also retained key players Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and star West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo using the Right To Match (RTM) option.
They have also roped in the services of seasoned campaigners like spinners Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir along with Australian all-rounder Shane Watson.
