Earlier, the Chennai-based IPL franchise was owned by India Cements Ltd, with N Srinivasan as its chairman. It was transferred to a separate entity named Chennai Super Kings Cricket Ltd after a Supreme Court ruling in 2015.
When CSK made a roaring comeback in IPL
Chennai Super Kings is one of the most successful franchises in IPL, having qualified for the playoffs in 10 seasons and winning four times. The Chennai-based franchise lifted the IPL 2018 title after coming back from a two-year suspension over a spot-fixing scandal.

IPL 2019
Chennai Super Kings finished second in the IPL 2019 points table and qualified for the playoffs. CSK reached the IPL 2019 final after defeating Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier but failed to overcome its arch-rival Mumbai Indians in the summit clash.
CSK in IPL 2020
As IPL 2020 moved away from India due to Covid-19 pandemic, the fortunes of one of the most successful IPL franchises were also hit. For the first time in Indian Premier League history, Chennai Super Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs and ended the league phase at the seventh spot on IPL points table.
