Assets that make “Chennai Super Kings” the Real Kings of IPL

Captain Cool has the power to destruct bowling attack of any team that makes him best finisher player and a devastating batsman of this game.
With his cool mind and a perfect game planner behind the wicket as a keeper, all these qualities make him a perfect package for Team CSK.
Most Destructive Opening Pair:
Combination of Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith is most explosive opening pair of IPL teams. When both are in form, there’s no need for anyone else to play.
They are the one who always play aggressively in this form. The role of both within the team is to give a massive attacking start and that’s all they always try to do. When it comes off, it obviously gives the team a really good foundation.
Both these men have shown the world that they need very little time to destroy the opposition. M.S.Dhoni feels himself very lucky, because these two men have the power to send the balls out of the ground against of the world’s best bowlers.
The pair has enjoyed each other’s company so far and McCullum described Smith as a powerful and intelligent cricketer.

When we talk about Chennai Super kings, it has a long list of finest all-rounder in their playing eleven like Sir Ravinder, Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo (massive hitter as well as a great dancer), Faf du Plessis and Mithun Manhas.
They are the players who, not only give you strength in both batting and bowling but also balances the team.
Smart Purchases of Domestic Potential at Auction:
According to IPL norms each team has criteria of featuring seven Indian players and 4 foreign in the playing 11s. So, getting strong domestic players is necessary because team’s dominance completely depends on the performances of its players.
“I think one really needs good domestic bowlers in the team. I firmly believe; it all depends upon how good are the domestic players in your side. I think a side which has better domestic cricketers has got an upper hand,” Dhoni said.
