The Indian Premier League (IPL) is undeniably the biggest sports carnival in India. With intense competition in the league, fans have often seen many records being broken ever since the inauguration of the extravaganza in 2008.
It goes without saying that the IPL is getting massive in stature with each passing year. Although many leagues across the world were formed, the IPL still remains the best among the all due to the participation of star players from all the corners of the cricketing world.
Even the foreign players eagerly wait for every year’s IPL and thus it is deemed as the best cricket league in the world.
1. CSK – Reached playoffs in all the seasons they were part of
The Chennai based franchise is the most successful team in the history of the IPL as their skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni led them to playoffs in all the 10 seasons they played so far. Their worst performance till date is back in 2009 IPL, where they finished fourth in the end.
In the 10 seasons they played, the Chennai Super Kings reached the finals eight times and won three of them in 2010, 2011 and 2018. In addition, they have also won the Champions League Twenty20 two times in 2010 and 2014.
Things are not going in Chennai’s way in the ongoing IPL as they lost the services of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh before the start of the tournament. They lost two of the three games they played in this season so far. The Yellow Army have to struggle hard to continue their record of reaching the playoffs this season.
