CSK’s next match is the inaugural match of IPL 2022, against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday 26 March at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
There is a new format for the IPL this year, with 10 teams split into two groups. Chennai Super Kings are in Group B along with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans.
CSK will play twice against Mumbai Indians from group A and these four fellow teams from Group B. Also, they will play one game each against Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Capitals, Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Supergiants.
Among their much-awaited gamed are the ones against Mumbai Indians. Chennai Super Kings will play Mumbai Indians on 21 April at Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium, and their second encounter is on 12 May at the Wankhede Stadium. In a way, both these encounters are in Mumbai. Chennai Super Kings’ next match will be against a new franchise – Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
CSK matches are always highly anticipated, and their consistency makes them one of the most loved franchises. Their games against MI remain among the tougher challenges, while one can expect easier games against teams like SRH, KKR and PBKS.
If we look at the CSK matches from the last three years in IPL – they played 47 matches, and won 27 with a winning percentage of 57.44%. In 2019, they remained second in the points table and reached the final but finished the tournament as runners-up.

In 2020, playing at UAE due to the COVID-19 outbreak in India, CSK mostly remained at the bottom of the points table and ended at seventh place after the league stage.
In the last three years, barring IPL 2020, Chennai Super Kings yielded great results. In 2019 CSK had to settle for the runners-up spot after losing the battle in the nail-biting final against their archrivals Mumbai Indians. It was their second defeat against MI in the knock-out, having lost to them in the first qualifier as well.
Chasing MI’s modest total of 149 runs, CSK fell short by 1 run after MS Dhoni got run-out for just 2 runs. This was the second occasion in 2019 when CSK lost by the margin of 1 run. In their group match against RCB, MS Dhoni played a brilliant knock of unbeaten 84 runs of 48 balls while chasing 162, but still, he could not propel the side past the winning line.
2020 was a different year for CSK as they ended up at seventh place in the points table after losing 8 of their 14 matches. It was the first time they failed to go past the league stage.
Even though they started their campaign well by defeating Mumbai Indians in the inaugural match, they lost 3 back to back matches thereafter and again lost 3 consecutive games mid-tournament.
Their biggest win that year came against Punjab Kings as they chased down the target of 179 with 10 wickets remaining thanks to Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis’ unbreakable opening stand.
In the 2021 edition of the IPL, which was partially hosted in India and later shifted to UAE, the team bounced back to reach the final for the 9th time and clinched their fourth IPL title, all under MS Dhoni.
In 2021, the skipper MS Dhoni lifted the trophy for CSK for the fourth time as they overwhelmed Kolkata Knight Riders in the final.
Despite losing last 3 league matches in a row, CSK managed to end the league stage in top 2.Cricket Betting
CSK had batted first and posted 192 on the board as du Plessis once again played the anchor role with his 86 from 59, while Robin Uthappa and Moin Ali made some quick thirties. On their road to the final, CSK won 9 league matches and outclassed top-ranked Delhi Capitals in their first qualifier encounter.
Ruturaj Gaikwad earned the orange cap for CSK for his 635 runs from 16 games, scoring 1 century and 4 half-centuries, while du Plessis was just two runs behind him in the most-runs table with 6 half-centuries.
