Top 5 Chennai Super Kings Highest Paid Players of IPL 2023

Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s laid-back style of leadership, and the franchise’s penchant for banking almost exclusively on 30-year-old T20 veterans, is in stark contrast to the format’s characteristic. But Chennai have solid results to back this strategy – they have won the IPL four times and finished runners-up five times since the tournament started in 2008.

Chennai are known to give the players they pick a long rope and expect them to do much of the problem solving on the pitch rather than in team meetings. That has made Chennai an attractive team for players who want to take their game to the next level. As South African veteran Faf du Plessis said a couple of years back: “There are a lot of thinking cricketers in the dressing room.”

Rahane’s best innings came in Knight Riders’ first game, against Chennai Super Kings, when he made 44 in 34 balls. However, in the next four matches, he had mediocre returns of 9, 12, 7 and 8.

Rahane has previously played for the Delhi Capitals, Rajasthan Royals, now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiants and the Mumbai Indians. Rahane has been out of favour with the national selectors, having not played a Test match since January. He is currently leading Mumbai in the 2022-23 Ranji Trophy.
