It is Whistle Podu created by Arvind shankar! This slogan became famous in a short ad where the whole team is whistling before reaching the cricket ground.
CSK is known as the most successful team of IPL with a rate o about 60%. The only team that reached the playoffs about 10 times and won the title 3 times.
Both the teams are equally good. But considering the title; it’s Rohit sharma led Mumbai Indians team. They are also referred to as Defending champions.
The reason was the involvement of team owner M Srinivasan in the IPL betting scandal. Many of the crickets including S. Sreesanth were arrested for the charges of spot-fixing.
The major reason is the age factor. The IPL season is becoming competitive every year. Many of the fresh debutants are young, skilled and energetic. Whereas many players in the CSK team are above 40 years of age.
We think CSK must consider overhauling the new team squad. Check the list!
MS-Dhoni: IPL 2020 was an unfortunate season for CSK. since then Dhoni has been under scrutiny and pressure to perform well. Clearly, the captain cool will soon be retired!
Cheteshwar Pujara: Pujara will be seen heading to IPL 2022 auction and according to the current scenario team might not give him another chance.
Faf-du Plesis: He‘s also on the wrong side of 35. But he’s still fit and has proved himself with his amazing batting performance.
Dwayne Bravo: He is 37 years old; all-rounder and at present is among the best players of CSK holding a record of 124 wickets.
Imran Tahir: At present, he is 42 years. No doubt he is energetic and passionate about making full efforts. But we think it’s the right time to say goodbye!
The 14th IPL edition has proven lucky for Chennai super kings. The yellow army has successfully managed to make an impact. They were at top of the scoreboard with 6 points and a net rate of +1.12 only after 4 matches.
