Chennai Super Kings are arguably the greatest team in the history of the IPL, and they have started their current title defence on a decent note with four wins in their first seven matches of the season. Although CSK haven’t been quite as consistent as some of the other top teams in the IPL 2024 season, they are well in the mix to end up making the playoffs once again.

Some of the top batters for Chennai Super Kings in ongoing IPL have been their captain Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube, while the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, and MS Dhoni have made vital contributions with the bat too. CSK are quite reliant on the likes of Matheesha Pathirana and Mustafizur Rahman, their two overseas recruits, with the ball, which is something they will have to improve upon, to ensure a place for them in the IPL 2024 playoffs.
