The Chennai Super Kings have been one of the best groups in the Indian Premier League (IPL) history. The “Yellow Army” holds the record for showing up in playoffs ten out of the eleven seasons. Sadly, CSK couldn’t reach the Top 4 in IPL 2020. All things considered, they finished their campaign with some brilliant exhibitions.

CSK has been home to some incredible names in world cricket like MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, and a few others. When got restricted in the year 2015, the pillars of CSK changed to the Rising Pune Supergiant and the Gujarat Lions.

Be that as it may, in this article, we will examine those 5 players who just represented the Chennai Super Kings in their IPL careers.

1. Stephen Fleming

The current mentor of the Chennai Super Kings group, Stephen Fleming played his only IPL for the 3-time champions in the year 2008. The previous New Zealand batsman has assumed an instrumental role in the group’s prosperity throughout the most recent couple of years.

Fleming played ten counterparts for the Super Kings in the 2008 IPL season. The left-handed batsman scored 196 runs for the group at an average of 21.78. His scoring rate was 118.79.

2. Suraj Randiv

Sri Lankan off-spinner Suraj Randiv played just a single IPL season, and he won the prize with the Chennai Super Kings that year. Randiv played eight games for CSK in 2011, scalping six wickets for the group.
