Who is the owner of CSK in 2022
Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited is the current CSK team owner. The ownership rights were transformed to the Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited back in 2014 when CSK was found guilty of match-fixing and Gurunath Meiyappan, a former official of the CSK team was banned for life.
Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited is a non-governmental company. And aside from owning all the managerial and administrative rights, the company does also own rights to the CSK jersey, its merchandise, footwear, wrist bands, posters and mugs etc.

MS Dhoni has been leading the yellow jersey team since 2008. And he is one of the reasons for CSK's immense popularity. Dhoni led the India team in the first T20 World Cup and won it. Then, he became the skipper of CSK in its inaugural season and took the team to the finals. Since then, CSK is the most feared team of all with its team logo of a roaring lion, completely defining the profile of CSK.
As per the financial reports, the net worth of the team is around 104 million US dollars (approximately INR 732 crores), the second-highest to the Mumbai Indians.

Ahead of IPL's inaugural season, BCCI sold all 8 teams to different companies and individuals. Amidst this, it sold CSK to India Cements Limited, a cement manufacturing company formed in 1946 for 91 million U.S dollars.
Later in 2014, following the match-fixing controversy, the RM Lodha committee suspended India Cements Ltd. and transferred the ownership rights to Chennai Super Kings Limited, a non-governmental company.
