Chennai Super Kings (CSK) lifted the IPL 2023 crown and retained most of their players. They needed just six slots to fill and had a purse remaining of ₹31.40 crore left with them.

CSK lifted their fifth IPL title by beating Gujarat Titans (GT) in a thrilling IPL 2023 Final. With this, CSK joined Mumbai Indians (MI) as the franchise with the joint-most IPL silverware to their name.

CSK retained a core group of their players. The main strength of their squad has always been the multi-dimensional players. The team management, along with MS Dhoni, likes to work with all-rounders and thus has a deep batting lineup with an abundance of bowling options as well.

With Ben Stokes opting out of IPL 2024, CSK released the English Test skipper, who was on a massive wage of ₹16.25 crore. Ambati Rayudu, who announced his retirement last season, was also released by the franchise.
