The journey of IPL 2024 was nothing special for Chennai Super Kings, the first shock that Chennai fans felt at the beginning of this season was when they came to know that Dhoni is not leading the team this year. Under the captaincy of Ruturaj Gaikwad, the team had a good start to the tournament. In the first two games of the Chennai tournament, they defeated Bengaluru by six wickets and in the second match, CSK defeated Gujarat Titans by 63 runs to stake its claim in the tournament.

The defending champion had won four out of the first seven matches in the first half of the tournament. In the first half, They defeated Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Gujarat Titans, Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians. In the second half, out of the seven matches played, Chennai won only three matches, due to which the path of qualification for the team became difficult.

Chidambaram Stadium, while Chennai won only two matches in away games. This was the biggest reason why the team could not even qualify for IPL-2024.
