Chennai Super Kings is one of the strongest teams in IPL history. In their history of IPL, they have won four IPL titles and have the record of most appearances in the playoffs which is eleven now.

They have also played the IPL finals nine times which is by far the highest. The team currently has 24 players, including four international cricketers. They are led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who retired last year and was replaced by Ravindra Jadeja as the new captain of the Chennai Super Kings team.

Being one of the most successful teams in the Indian Premium League, this team is meant to be a big rival for any team in the tournament. The Chennai Super Kings will face their arch-rival Kolkata Knight Riders in the first game of the ipl 2022 tournament. With the new captain, the team is considered one of the biggest threats for every team so far. Many people even believe that this would be one of the best years for it since its inception.

Owner of CSK 2022 Team

The company who owns chennai super kings is Chennai Super Kings Cricket Ltd. However, the team was previously owned by the India Cements since the inception of the IPL.

The ownership was changed in 2018 as the team was banned for 2016-17 due to some corruptions issues. India Cements is a company engaged in various branches of manufacturing, and it deals with cement, limestone, dolomite, gypsum, power plants, etc. 

However, the fans of CSK are still in the quest for why chennai super kings was banned? And why only CSK was banned and not other teams which also indulged in illegal activities? Also, some people believe that the ban was because Chennai Super Kings had many outstation players. Other teams had more outstation players than csk, but they were never banned.
