Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful and loved franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL). They have won the league four times out of the 13 seasons that they have been a part of it. Chennai have had many great players play for them over the years who have scored tons of runs for them.

One great thing about Chennai Super Kings is that they don’t rely on one or two players to score bulk of the runs for the team but have match winners seeded throughout their squad. They have had players who could launch the ball out of the stadium for huge sixes along with players who played the anchor role to perfection.

CSK have had many top run-getters in their history but there have been batters who have fuelled CSK's success with their consistency over longer duration of time. The team has also been part of the Champions League T20 five times.

So let’s take a look at the top ten run-getters for CSK in IPL History:

10) Shane Watson

Shane Watson is arguably an unsung hero for the Chennai Super Kings. He played for the Men in Yellow for three seasons during which, he was the key man at the top of the side. He was an important player for CSK in their title-winning run, after the franchise made its comeback in 2018.

Watson was bought by the four-time champions for a bargain price of INR 4 Crores. His ability to give his side great starts in the power play along with his understanding of the pitch and playing the right shots were bonus for the team. He was a trusted bowler as well since he could be given a few overs on tricky pitches and his slower ball was sometimes too good for opposition batters.

He amassed 1,252 runs in three seasons for the franchise, while scoring two centuries and seven fifties during his time there. He had a decent average of over 30 with an amazing strike rate of over 130. He goes down as one of the key players in CSK’s all-time great list.
