CSK top scorers and top wicket-takers: Chennai Super Kings’ best batsmen and bowlers in IPL 2024

Five-time champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have been one of the most successful franchises in the IPL. The reigning champions are in prime contention to qualify for the playoffs once again, having won six out of the eleven games played this season. 

The team has performed decently under the newly appointed captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad. The 27-year-old was announced as the new skipper of the team just before the start of the season, replacing the legendary Indian wicket keeper captain, MS Dhoni.

CSK are currently fourth in the table with twelve points and three games to go. Their most recent win came against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in an all-important clash at the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala, despite the absence of key bowlers for the game.

Apart from Gaikwad, Shivam Dube has also proved to be impressive with the bat for CSK. Usually coming on as an impact sub, Dube possesses the ability to score runs quickly. The 30-year-old also earned himself a place in the Indian squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in the United States and the West Indies with his impressive performances.
