Whether we play IPL T20 fantasy cricket or sit watching the IPL matches, they are incomplete without mentioning CSK. Don’t you feel so? Chennai Super Kings has a set the image to such a high level.
Last year when Chennai Super Kings came back after a two-year ban, IPL fantasy cricket lovers realized what they missed.
The team’s last win in IPL 2018 edition was very special for them and the IPL fantasy league fans. CSK has made some incredible records in the IPL journey till now. And we are hoping to get some incredible records from CSK this season too at the end of the tournament.
In all the glorious years at IPL T20 fantasy cricket games, the Chennai-based franchise has broken and set several records in IPL history. Here’s a look at 4 such records:
100% playoff record
CSK have been a part of 9 out of 11 IPL seasons and have made it to the playoffs in every season they have participated. This makes CSK the most successful team in the Indian league. They have made it to the IPL final a record 7 times.
The Super Kings have won the IPL twice and have ended up as runners-up four times.
Best win rate in the IPL
Chennai Super Kings boasts the best win percentage in the IPL. They have won 96 of 155 matches they have played and lost just 57 fixtures. This takes their win percentage to a whopping 62.66, which is the highest in IPL. Three-time champions Mumbai Indians are next in the list with a win percentage of 57.34.
Lowest total defended
Chennai Super Kings hold the record for defending the lowest total in the IPL when they successfully kept Kings XI Punjab at bay after scoring 116/9 in 2009. The Super Kings restricted Kings XI to 92/8.
Most dot balls by CSK bowler
We have collected one record from this season as well. In the match against KKR, Deepak Chahar has created the record of bowling most dot balls in IPL history. The right-arm medium fast bowler has recorded bowling 20 dot balls against KKR.
The bowler has been in his lethal best when he dismissed Chriss Lynn at 0, Robin Uthappa at 6 and Nitish Rana at 0 of KKR.
Chahar, the 26 years old bowler, has bowled five dot balls in the 19th over of the KKR innings. This resulted in the bogging down of the big KKR hitter, Andre Russell.
