Rivalries

Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians have played against each other more than 35 times in the IPL.[140] They are the two most successful IPL teams with five titles each. The two sides have met each other at the final of the IPL four times, with Mumbai winning thrice and Chennai winning once.[141] The rivalry between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore stems from the Kaveri River water dispute between the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The rivalry is also called "Kaveri derby" and "South Indian derby".[142][143][144] The Super Kings beat the Royal Challengers in the final of the 2011 IPL, the only meeting between the two teams at an IPL final.[141]

Ownership and finances

When IPL was launched in 2008, the Chennai franchise was sold to the India Cements for $91 million, making it the fourth most expensive team in the league.[145] N. Srinivasan, who was then the treasurer and vice-chairman of BCCI, became the de facto owner of the Chennai Super Kings since he was the managing director of India Cements. The BCCI regulations which prevented any administrator from holding commercial interests in the matches conducted by the board was amended to not include the IPL following the same.[146] In September 2008, Former BCCI President A. C. Muthiah went to the Madras High Court to restrain BCCI from allowing Srinivasan to participate in the general body meeting. However, the suit was dismissed by the High Court and Srinivasan was re-elected as the Secretary of BCCI the following day.[147] Muthiah then moved to the Supreme Court to stop Srinivasan from taking over as the President of BCCI, which was rejected and Srinivasan was elected as the President of BCCI.[148][149] On 22 January 2015, the Supreme Court stuck down the 2008 amendement to the BCCI constitution that allowed board officials to have a commercial interest in the IPL and as a result, the Super Kings franchise was transferred to a separate entity named Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited.[150]

As of 2021, about 30% of the franchise is owned by the trustees and shareholders of India Cements.[117] Super Kings recored revenues of 417.8 (US$5.20) with a net profit of 111.2 (US$1.40) for FY 2018-19. In the FY 2020-21, the revenue dropped to 253.7 (US$3.20) with a net profit of 40.2 (50¢ US).[117] The franchise generates revenues from broadcasting deals, match day tickets, in-stadium advertising and merchandise sales. Majority of the revenue comes from broadcasting rights which contributes about 60% of the total revenue, followed by around 20% from sponsorship and about 10-15% from ticket sales.[117]

Captain
