Chennai Super Kings has been one of the most successful franchises in the IPL history. Based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, Chennai Super Kings has been a part of the tournament from the very beginning. CSK has owned the game from the very start and were the champions of the T20 format for the years 2010, 11 and 18. The franchise was first given the name Chennai Super Stars but it was changed to Chennai Super Kings before the tournament began. Not only has the team won the IPL trophy thrice but in the 9 seasons that they appeared out of 11, they were the runners-up for 4 of them. CSK is a great team and has always performed exceptionally well in the T20 format.
Although the team is a fan favourite, controversies have been like a shadow to the franchise from the very start. The team had to face a ban of two years from 2015 to 2017, for the alleged involvement of their owners in the 2013 IPL betting case. The Super Kings returned to the league in 2018, winning the championship in the comeback season. The team will be a part of the upcoming 12 th season of IPL, Dhoni has been the captain of the team from the very first 2008 season and he will be seen leading the team in the upcoming season as well. With a great line up CSK will surely have its eyes on the price.

The predictions have been made emphasising on the facts and figures. Based on the predictions, here is an overview of what could be expected of the team in the IPL 2019.
Based on the first letter of the Chennai Super Kings, the ruling sing of the team is Aries. The 12 th season of IPL will begin from 23 rd March with Chennai being one of the teams participating in the opening match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The ruling star of Aries is Mars and at the beginning of IPL Mars will be in the 10 th house which is the indicator of fame, success, public activity and glory. Mars in the 10 th house will work as a magnifier of success for the team.
On the basis of numerology, the letters in the name Chennai Super Kings produce the number 9 to be their ruling number which is again the number of Mars. Based on the short form CSK the number identified is 8 which is governed by Saturn and in both the cases the stars are indicating to be in favour of Chennai Super Kings.
The team might have another great season for them and their chances to reach the semis are very strong to start with.
