IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings will play kickoff game in 2022 IPL schedule

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) needs no introduction as the men in yellow are arguably the most popular IPL franchise in the history of the tournament with only the Mumbai Indians giving them any competition in the popularity department.

CSK hold the record for making it to the most number of (11) IPL playoffs and the most (9) IPL finals. They have won the IPL Championship on four different occasions.

Ravindra Jadeja was given the armband before IPL 2022 season started but he resigned from the post midway after a poor show. MS Dhoni was reinstated as CSK’s captain.

Dhoni will now stay on as captain for the 2023 season after last year’s experiment went wrong, with many suspecting this really will be his last season at Chennai, at least as a player.

If you’re into IPL betting, stand up and take note of Chennai because they’re expected to improve considerably on last season’s performance.

CSK Betting Odds To Win IPL 2023

CSK odds to win IPL 2023 are 5.00 with Parimatch. Odds of 5.00 make CSK the joint-fifth favorites to win what would be their fifth IPL title and first since 2021.

At first glance, it’s a good price for a franchise who are perennial winner of this tournament. Only the Mumbai Indians have more IPL titles than them (5) and no one has made the final more often (9) than the Super Kings.

So if you’re judging a team based on reputation and historical achievements, you may well be tempted by those odds.

But if you are, you’ll have to dismiss the fact they’ve been extremely poor in two of the past three seasons.

Read on to see what we make of those CSK odds to win IPL 2023, where their strengths and weaknesses lie, what business they did in the last IPL auction, and which Chennai Super Kings players could make an impact this year.

CSK At IPL Auction 2023: Notable Players out

Top-order batsman Robin Uthappa called it a day on his cricketing career and retired aged 36, while fast bowler Adam Milne was released.

Dwayne Bravo, the IPL’s all-time record wicket-taker with 183, announced he was retiring from IPL cricket as a player and became their new bowling coach instead.

Notable Players in

CSK got the big checkbook out in the late December auction and bought England Test skipper Ben Stokes for 16.25 Krore.

Stokes had an excellent T20 World Cup in November 2022, which his side won. On two occasions he aced a tough run chase under pressure, including in the final against Pakistan.

He sat out the 2022 IPL and it’s worth noting his form hasn’t always been the best in the IPL. So it’s something of a gamble they spent so much money on him.

They then added yet another all-rounder to the roster of Chennai Super Kings players when they brought in giant Kiwi Kyle Jamieson for 1 Crore.

Highly-experienced top-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane (50 Lakh) was brought in to fill the void left by Uthappa.

Csk Betting Tips For IPL 2023

Here are some betting tips for you to follow:

CSK Top Batsman Betting Tip – Ruturaj Gaikwad

Now with three IPL seasons under his belt at CSK, Gaikwad is very much the rock around which CSK want to build their batting around.

He scored plenty of runs in his debut season in 2020, was the IPL’s top run scorer in 2021, and was the best of a bad bunch last year.

Gaikwad ended as Chenai’s top scorer for a second consecutive season with 368 runs, which included three fifties and being dismissed for 99.

CSK Top Bowler Betting Tip – Deepak Chahar

Things may have turned out very differently for CSK in IPL 2022 had Deepak Chahar not been injured for the whole campaign.

A local (non-overseas) player who can bowl in the Powerplay and at the death and consistently take wickets, while not going for many runs, is like gold dust.

He may not be the quickest or tallest but his lines and lengths and variations have left many an IPL batsman bamboozled. CSK will be praying Chahar stays fit for the whole IPL 2023 campaign.

Deepak Chahar occasionally scores some lower-order runs as well which is a bonus.

csk’S Key player: Ravindra Jadeja

Since returning from a lengthy injury while on international duty, Jadeja has reminded us all of what CSK and India have missed while he was absent.

He’s the man who can do the lot in all three disciplines and now fit again and relieved of the captaincy, he should be back to his best.

CSK Strengths and weaknesses Ahead Of ipl 2023


  • Potentially four world-class all-rounders in the side Stokes, Jadeja, Jamieson, and Ali.
  • Cool captaincy of MS Dhoni.
  • Strong record at home. First time in four years they’ll be playing at home.


  • Stokes will miss the Playoffs (if they make them) to prepare for Test matches.
  • Coming off the back of a poor 2022 season.
  • Opening batsmen Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad can be slow starters.

CSK Probable XI ipl 2023

Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, MS Dhoni (c) (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Mukesh Choudhary, Maheesh Theekshana


Here’s our quickfire guide to how CSK may perform in the 2023 IPL:

Where will CSK finish in the IPL 2023 table?

We predict they might finish second or third in the regular season. Their huge experience in the Playoffs will be a big boost compared to other sides who don’t haven’t made the playoffs as often as them over the years.

Are they a good bet at 5.00 to win it?

Yes, their pedigree and the Chennai Super Kings squad for 2023 suggest those are goods on them.
