Chennai Super Kings, the defending champions, will walk into the IPL 2022 with the aim of winning their fifth IPL title: here’s the full squad list, team news, replacements, injury updates and coaching staff for CSK ahead of season 15 of the Indian Premier League.
CSK are the second-most successful team in the IPL, having won the tournament in 2010, 2011, 2018, and 2021.
The IPL 2022 auction saw CSK buy back several long-serving old players to their fold, as well as add some exciting new talent to their side. Ahead of the auction, they had retained MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
On the first day of the IPL 2022 auction, they concentrated on getting familiar faces of the CSK family – Dwayne Bravo, Ambati Rayudu, and Deepak Chahar – back. On the second day, they went for some international stars like Devon Conway, Maheesh Theekshana, and exciting Indian talent Rajvardhan Hangarekar.
