IPL 2019: Chennai Super Kings Players list: Complete squad of MS Dhoni-led CSK

IPL 2019: Chennai Super Kings Players list: Complete squad of MS Dhoni-led CSK

New Delhi, March 6: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are the defending champions and the Yellow Army, under the leadership of their inspirational captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, would be hoping to repeat their exploits of the previous season to retain the title in 2019.

CSK had a fairy tale finish in the last edition of the Indian Premier League as they were returning after serving two-years' suspension but they put everyone in awe with their sensational game all through the season. They were a team to defeat all through the season and the finalists Sunrisers Hyderabad couldn't crack the code to beat CSK as they were defeated by the eventual champions on four occasions, including the final.

Before the start of the 2018 season, the two-time champions were called the 'daddy's team' as the team comprised of several players above 30 years of age. But MS Dhoni's tactical moves and the way the experienced players absorbed the pressure match-after-match and steered the team to victories proved the value of seasoned campaigners.

The team didn't make too many any changes for the 12th season as the team management reposed its faith in the senior players. In the IPL auction, CSK bought just two players.
