Chennai Super Kings (CSK) didn’t have a great outing in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), as they won only four out of 14 contests. Before the start of the competition this year, CSK, along with Mumbai Indians (MI), were seen as contenders to win the title. No one expected the Men in Yellow to produce a miserable display in the 2022 edition considering their track record in the league.
In the next season, the franchise will look to forget the failure of the 2022 edition and get their old form back. After 15 seasons of the league, CSK are the second-most successful franchise after Mumbai Indians (MI), winning four trophies. On that note, let us take a look at some major records that CSK hold in IPL history:
5. Lowest total defended
In the 54th game of the second edition of the IPL, CSK and Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) faced each other at Kingsmead, Durban. It was a do-or-die match for both teams obtain a spot in the semi-finals. Winning the crucial toss, CSK skipper MS Dhoni elected to bat, and the openers George Bailey and Parthiv Patel gave an ideal start by adding 40 runs in just 4.5 overs.
However, after the fall of both openers, CSK's innings started faltering due to the disciplined bowling of the Kings XI Punjab. With the contribution of Suresh Raina (20 runs) and Jacob Oram (17 runs), the team crossed the 100-run mark and posted the total of 116/9 in 20 overs.
Defending the small target, the Men in Yellow displayed courage as their bowlers tore apart Punjab's batting line-up to end their innings on 92/8. Muttiah Muralitharan proved himself as one of the valuable assets for the franchise by becoming the Player of the Match for his match-winning spell of 4-0-8-2.
