It’s the yellow and blue squad that has the best win percentage among all teams in the IPL, thanks to their wins 2010, 2011 and 2018, and now they’re back to take the crown.

The Chennai Super Kings based in (you guessed it) Chennai, are captained by Mahendra Singh (MS) Dhoni and coached by New Zealander Stephen Fleming.

The King’s home ground boasts the historic M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, the oldest stadium in India that is still used to this day. In fact, because of their 67.44 win percentage there, it’s known as ‘Fortress Chepauk; and ‘Lions' Den’.

In the IPL 2019, the Kings were the first team to qualify for the Playoffs, and went into the final for the eighth time in the league – going up against the Mumbai Indians.

The gruelling final saw the Mumbai Indians make 149/8 in their 20 overs, while the Super Kings reached 148/7, losing the title. That said, the Kings' bowler Imran Tahir won the Purple Cap for bagging a whopping 26 wickets.

This year, they’ll be looking for Tahir to bring his A-game again, along with South African Lungi Ngidi, to have a good season.
