The Lions will rekindle their magic, says performance analyst Lakshmi

“Consistency is what made Chennai Super Kings a force to reckon with in the Indian Premier League,” said Lakshmi Narayanan, who will continue as performance analyst of the Lions in the upcoming 2018 season.

“MS Dhoni’s inspiring leadership, his unique man-management skills that brought the best out of the team with absolutely no pressure on any of the individuals,” added Lakshmi, who has been with CSK since the inaugural season in 2008.

CSK won the title twice, finished runners-up on four occasions and qualified to the Playoffs in all eight seasons between 2008 and 2015 to emerge as one of the most decorated sides in the opening decade of the competition.
