- Mohit Sharma was the purple cap holder in IPL 2014
Chennai Super Kings are undoubtedly one of the most successful and fan-followed franchises in the Indian Premier League. They have won the coveted title three times and have the achieved the rare feat of being the only team to qualify for the playoffs every season.
They have always had their core set of players consisting of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja. They have relied upon experience more than anything else and have emerged as the most prosperous team in the Indian Premier League.
While some part of their success can be attributed to the stalwarts in their squad, the remaining part can be attributed to their scouting of rare talents. Those talents have proved themselves successful in the Indian Premier League and have reached greater heights in their career.
On that note, let us take a look at the promising talents unearthed by Chennai Super Kings.
#1. Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin is currently the captain of Kings XI Punjab and India's most trusted spinner in the longest format of the game. The 32-year-old off-spinner has been brilliant with the ball and has also been effective with the bat.
Ashwin was roped in by Chennai Super Kings in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League due to his all-round exploits for Tamil Nadu in the domestic circuit. Playing for his home franchise Chennai, Ashwin bettered his performance year after year. He shot to prominence when he finished as the highest wicket-taker of the 2010 Champions League Twenty20.
His success and fame at the international level can be attributed to Chennai Super Kings. Though Chennai Super Kings are performing well without the services of Ashwin, they might regret letting him go as he has proved himself successful for Kings XI Punjab. He is one of the finest talents to have been unearthed by Chennai Super Kings.
