CSK has been one of the most consistent and dominant teams in the IPL history and they have groomed a lot of youngsters who went to become T20i team captains. Chennai Super Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in IPL history in the previous edition but they have started the ongoing season really well.

They are currently in the second position in the table with three wins in four games and they look to have got into their groove.

The New Zealand fast bowler Tim Southee was picked up by CSK in the 2011 auction and he tasted success immediately with the franchise going to win their second title consecutively. However, he was released from the franchise and he played various franchises after that.

Tim Southee is currently the vice-captain of the New Zealand T20 squad and has captained the New Zealand cricket team in the absence of regular skipper Kane Williamson. He has a good cricketing brain and does add a lot of value to his team. He started his career with CSK and six years later, he made his captaincy debut for his nation against West Indies.
