Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. India Cements Limited owns the team through the holding company Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited. The team was banned from the IPL for two years starting in July 2015 because its owners were involved in the 2013 IPL betting case. In its first season back in 2018, the team won the title. MS Dhoni is the team’s captain, and Stephen Fleming is its coach. In January 2022, CSK became India’s first sports business with a value of $1 billion.

Leading Run Scorers
7. Brendon McCullum (2015):
Brendon McCullum’s second IPL century, which was his first for Chennai Super Kings, helped the home team win a big second game. His 100 not out off 56 balls included hits into the empty stands of MA Chidambram Stadium, two ramps for sixes over the keeper’s head, and a hard to believe reverse-pull to get him to 99 after IPL rookie Trent Boult saw that he was getting ready for a ramp and bowled a slower bouncer. McCullum’s score was helped by MS Dhoni’s powerful 53 off 29 balls. Dhoni was more at home when he came in at 135 for 2.
