Teams with Most Wins Against Chennai Super Kings in IPL History

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have undoubtedly been the most consistent franchise in IPL history. They have reached the playoffs in 10 of their 11 seasons, winning the title 5 times. 

However, CSK’s monopoly has been challenged by rivals over the years. In this blog, we look at the teams with the most match wins against Chennai in the IPL.

Teams with Most Wins Against Chennai Super Kings in IPL History

5th Most Wins vs CSK – Kolkata Knight Riders 

The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have locked horns with CSK 28 times in the IPL since 2008. KKR holds a 10-18 head-to-head record, winning 35.71% of their contests.

They got the better of Dhoni’s men during their title-winning campaigns in 2012 and 2014. But CSK exacted revenge in the 2021 final where they bested KKR to lift their 4th IPL crown.

4th Most Wins vs CSK – Delhi Capitals

The Delhi Capitals (DC), formerly Delhi Daredevils, have squared off against Chennai 27 times in the IPL. They have managed to win 10 of those games while ending up on the losing side 17 times.

Despite boasting names like Sehwag, Warner, and Pant, Delhi has struggled to overcome CSK’s might over the years. Their win percentage against Chennai stands at 37.03%.

3rd Most Wins vs CSK – Punjab Kings 

Since 2008, Punjab Kings (PBKS) have taken on Chennai 28 times in the IPL. They have registered 11 wins compared to CSK’s 16 victories, along with one tied game.

Punjab has won 39.28% of their contests against Dhoni’s men. But they will be ruing their inability to triumph during the knockout games against Chennai.

2nd Most Wins vs CSK – Rajasthan Royals

The inaugural IPL winners Rajasthan Royals (RR) have enjoyed a reasonable amount of success against the Super Kings over the years.

In their 27 meetings so far, Rajasthan has managed to defeat Chennai 12 times while ending up on the losing side 15 times. RR’s win percentage against CSK stands at a healthy 44.44%.

Shane Warne led Rajasthan to victory against Dhoni’s men in that famous 2008 final showdown at the DY Patil Stadium. However, the Royals have come up short during subsequent playoff clashes, with some players consistently delivering standout performances. In fact, when it comes to most runs against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL history, several batsmen have left an indelible mark with their impressive scores and match-winning contributions.

Most Wins vs CSK – Mumbai Indians 

When it comes to dominating Chennai Super Kings, there is no franchise more accomplished than the Mumbai Indians (MI). The two heavyweights have faced each other 36 times in IPL history.

Mumbai edges the head-to-head record by 21 wins to 15 losses against Chennai Super Kings. With a win percentage of 58.33%, MI has consistently gotten the better of MS Dhoni’s famed CSK lineup.

Rohit Sharma’s men outclassed Chennai in the IPL 2013, 2015, and 2019 finals to underline their superiority. MI also holds a 12-10 edge over CSK during matches at Chepauk.

Conclusion

While Chennai Super Kings have been the gold standard in IPL cricket, MI has proven to be a cut above the rest. Mumbai has consistently found ways to outwit the Super Kings in the league over the past decade. 

The likes of KKR, DC, and PBKS have posted 10+ wins against CSK as well. But no team has matched Mumbai’s consistency in defeating Chennai during the all-important knockout games.
