Dhoni is one of the most successful captains in the history of Indian Premier League. He’s been leading CSK since 2008 when the first edition of India’s cash rich t20 league launched. MSD led team to right IPL finals and team succeed to hold crown three times. Eventually Super Kings is the only team to win consecutive titles in 2010 and 2011. Team also won 2018 IPLT20 edition after coming back in the tournament serving two-year ban on fixing charges.
CSK were runners-up in 2008, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2019 IPL editions.And Chennai Super Kings will be one of the hot favorites to win 2020 IPL as well and as per cricket experts and analysts on sportsbetting24 have predicted CSK to win fourth title next year with 55% chances to claim title.
