They had to wait till the 6th edition of the tournament to lift their first title. But after that, there was no looking back for them. They have gone on to win 5 IPL titles since and have established themselves as the most successful franchise. Rohit Sharma has led the team brilliantly and has been the captain of the side in all their title wins. Their strong Indian core consisting of players like Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah make them a formidable unit and very hard to beat.
Chennai Super Kings is the second most successful team after Mumbai. Led by charismatic captain MS Dhoni, CSK has been in the playoffs in 12 times out of 13.
IPL has been instrumental in producing some of the best domestic talents who have later on gone to perform well at the international level.
