Even though the four-time IPL winners were unable to reach their peak in this year’s tourney, there was no hopelessness inside the dressing room, everyone maintained a smile on their faces, not enabling defeats to impact them much.

Regrettably, this year didn’t go to plan. We had durations when we were genuinely nice with the bat, ball, and fielding, but it won’t occur continuously for us.”

“Even though we have dropped a few close matches, we haven’t yet left the locker room depressed.” The CSK way is to Keep your chin up and a smile on your face and don’t let it impact you too much.

The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are without a doubt among the most dominant franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL) (IPL). The Yellow Army, on the other hand, has shown signs of weakness during the last three seasons. The four-time IPL champions failed to make the playoffs in 2020 and 2022, despite becoming champions in 2021.
