The Chennai Super Kings (CSK), statistically, have been the most dangerous side in the Indian Premier League (IPL). They have qualified for the top-four on every other time ever since the inception of the event back in 2008. They came back from a two-year suspension period and marked their return with their third title victory, equalling the Mumbai Indians (MI).

They retained MS Dhoni as their leader which wasn’t a surprise. The decision didn’t backfire one bit as the Jharkhand-born player led his team with sheer authority and never let any complacency sneak into the team. Most teams strained to get the better of the Yellow Army. In our article, we have put forth the best XI from the World that can overhaul the might of the Super Kings.

KL Rahul has strained to cement his place in the national team owing to inconsistent performances. The cricketer recently opened the batting for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and made a statement surrounding his performance in limited overs cricket. With 659 runs in 14 matches at a stupendous average of 54.91, he was undoubtedly Punjab’s mainstay in the lineup, sometimes a lone warrior too.

Most importantly, he amassed the runs at a strike-rate of 158.41, which put the bowlers under a whole lot of pressure. The 26-year old has duly been rewarded with a berth in the Indian ODI and T20I squad for their tour of England. Rahul is presently at the top of his game and has the potential to decimate the best of bowling attacks. Most importantly, he employs a matured approach while batting.
