CSK maintain their 100% record of making it to the play-offs

Recommended Posts

" Rajasthan have not only kept their chances alive, they've ensured that CSK are the first team guaranteed a play-off spot in IPL 2019. No combination of results can have four teams above CSK now, so they maintain their 100% record of making it to the play-offs."

 

That's impressive irrespective of allegation of fixing the pitches

Still the greatest IPL team. The achievement is similar to Barcelona and Madrid's feats of never being relegated or the NYY team of the 30s-50s. Though I doubt CSK will continue to make the playoffs every year after Dhoni retires from IPL.

They have made to final 7 times out of the 9 seasons they played and won 3 times. Fans of most franchise would be happy with that result. MI has also done well to reach final 4 times out of 11 seasons and won 3 times.  Under Gambhir KKR did well. Hyderabad team has also done very well over the years. They are still not as good as those 2 teams.

3/7 finals is ok. But the claim is of greatest t20 team for which this is below average record in finals for a supposedly greatest team as claimed by chuskis.

It’s like saying Meryl Streep is a bad actress ‘cause she has won only 3 off her 21 Oscar nominations. :om: 

Having Oscar nomination is not the same as reaching playoffs. Even Delhi, Punjab and RCB have made into playoffs.

Did they make to the playoffs every year? And, 7/9 the finals?

The point is Oscar nomination is a lot more difficult than making playoffs. Regarding finals, already said 3/7 means they choke a lot too. 

4/7 :------ great t20 team

5/7 :------- greatest t20 team.

The stats are there to see. Most consistent T20 franchise ever. Live with it!

What do you mean ‘even’ RCB?

 

We are 3 time finalists :cheer:

 

So even RCB is three time finalists.And CSK gloats about playoffs like some next big thing since slice bread.

That's because there isnt a season where we didnt reach the playoffs. And we were in the finals 7 times and won it 3 times. Our winning percentage is the best in IPL. Its not gloating. Its just facts. If you are getting triggered over facts, that is not our problem :noidea:

Yes. It's a very good team backed by cheating, fixing, betting, buying umpires, doctoring etc. But even after doing all this they still fall short of being the greatest t20 team.

CSK lost to some big strikers when they looked like they were going to win. One was Yusuf Pathan where he took Muralitharan to cleaners in the final. Worst fiasco was when that no name Manvinder bisla took KKR  to win.  Remember   M Vijay was celebrating prematurely. Those 2 were winnable matches. They even got rid of inform Gambhir very early.

Pretty sure 100% means in the years they played..

That is very arbitrary.

 

A one hit wonder singer also has a 100% record, but you can't compare him to those who have been giving hits over the decades.

 

CSK missed out on 2 play offs, they just weren't good enough. That is the reality.

Everything else is lies, damned lies and statistics.

Some stupid records being made up just to hype CSK. Does anyone care who made the semis of every world cup? And that tournament is a 1000 times more difficult. Australia is praised for winning the world cup most times, south Africa is not praised for making a lot of semis

Some posters are being very unfair to CSK. They are easily the best and most consistent team in IPL. Its been 11th edition but CSKs supremacy still intact speak volumes of Dhoni's leadership attributes. Don't know why we have to be jealous and not call spade a spade. Considering short history of T20 cricket, I would also say CSK has been the best T20 team ever (in all leagues/International teams combined).

West Indian national team begs to differ.

I am talking about international T20 teams only. Please tell me a more consistent T20 team in history who has achieved more than CSK? Yes WI have won the world T20 twice but never as consistent. Then again, T20 history is just a decade old...so its not a big achievement.

 

Please note - I am a RCB supporter...so I will not praise CSK for the sake of it. They are the best T20 team so far and its a fact.

^ Not taking away any credits but any team which has full backing of this scripted League organisers, has most biased crowd, wins toss & fields first in a dustbowl home wicket, it’s not s big deal... The IPL is won and teams “selected” for playoffs are mostly based on advertising and marketing requirements...

i dont think there is any team that has made the Semis of every world cup and has also won 3 of them.
