CHENNAI SUPER KINGS 2010

The team won just 2 games out of their first 7 games and were almost out of the competition after their captain MS Dhoni was injured and missed out few games. But, by winning 5 games out of their last 7, they scraped through and finally won the IPL trophy.

The team started with a win over Mumbai in the UAE but tapered off their win by losing 3 of their next 4 games. After returning back to India, they changed their strategy and the move helped them ensure a playoff spot as KKR won 5 matches consecutively and also finished ahead of Chennai with a better net run-rate.
